[BETA] Jumpy Baskets - Looking for Beta Testers

Hey guys,
I happy to announce my latest game - Jumpy Baskets. It is a very simple to play high-score chaser, that will light your thumbs on fire

I've tried making basketball on mobile more fun and also give maximum control of the player on how to make his shots, but still keep the controls as simple as possible.

Currently I am looking for people who would like to test the game on Android.

Sign-up for a Closed Alpha here: https://play.google.com/apps/testing...ive.basketball

Here are some screenshots:

Lots of cool details in backgrounds. Have you been thinking about adding music to the game?

Thanks, that is the work on a very talented pixel artists I work with - Gerardo, you can check all his stuff here http://kirokaze.deviantart.com/

I tried adding music and experimented with different styles, but for some reason, I found it very annoying during gameplay, maybe I could add some on the main menu screen.

I would consider testing BG music with actual users. One approach would be to implement the feature and add a button in the game ui to quickly turn it off and on, then instrument that button with analytics so you know how many users turn it off.

Thanks for the participation in the Beta and for the feedback. The game has been signed by a publisher and the release date is yet to be decided.

Cheers!
