It's March Madness time! Participate in the madness by scoring a copy of Hoops Madness .... the arcade basketball shooting game with a twist!

How will you do against a sideways moving backboard?

Deceptively simply and addictive. Can you figure out the strategies that will get you the scores that will dominate the Global High Score Tables?


And here's a video of some sweet gameplay action:

This is a great game. If you liked Lumpy Hoops but want more of a true basketball theme, this is the game for you. I love the glass backboard and the crowd in the background and since March Madness is going on, this is perfect timing.

The touch controls are perfect and the level of polish is fantastic. IMO Lumpy Hoops and Hoops Madness are the two best basketball shooting games in the app store.

What makes this any different than Lumpy Hoops? Any reason to buy this if you already own Lumpy Hoops besides aesthetics? Any change in gameplay?

Glad you like it!

This is mainly a visual change. We know there are lots of basketball fans out there that would want version that is more visually true to the game. There is a slight game difference, and that is with the backboard, because it's regulation dimensions. So it moves slightly differently. If you have Lumpy Hoops, you'll notice the difference, but it's slight!

We do plan on unifying the leaderboards between both games. Right now there is a 5 name slot entry per game. So if you had both, you could get up to 10.

IMHO, the game is a little zippier (since we don't draw an animating Lumpy and all his parts) and looks sportier!

Go to where the basketball court and arcade go 1 on 1 with Hoops Madness!

I love Lumpy Hoops but after playing both games, Hoops Madness is even more polished. I think they both offer perfect controls but Hoops Madness is the complete package. I will say that my kids prefer Lumpy though.

I think you have a great franchise here. How about Lumpy Golf, bowling or tennis?

You know, the March Madness bug may sell me on this one.

I thought Lumpy Hoops looked good, but I wasn't a fan of the cartoony graphics. This looks much more polished, like something I'd see in an arcade. I think I'm sold...

The visual change in Hoops Madness made all the difference. Now we still love the Lumpster but even he admitted that the change made the game "feel" and look better

I like the way you think . That is a possibility.... Lumpy bowling would be great if Lumpy was the pins instead of the ball!!

Well this one's for you then CzarCastic! Your reaction is the same we got from many of the pure basketball fans we showed Lumpy Hoops to. They liked the gameplay but not the cartoony graphics. I think you'll enjoy Hoops Madness.

Here a tip for you when you play. Time it so you can shoot multiple balls at the basket as it moves by. Especially at the start of the game, you can sink 5 -6 balls if you shoot fast enough.

Btw, who are you rooting for?

I'm rooting for a team that didn't even make it in to the tournament. Stop rubbing it in.

So, with that said, I root for the team that's going to help me win my NCAA bracket, which changes on a daily basis.
