Can’t get enough March Madness! Then lace up and hit the courts with 3 POINT HOOPS™ from Skyworks®, creators of the best quality and most fun games on the iPhone/iPod touch!

With 3 POINT HOOPS, shoot shots from around the court! In Classic Mode, shoot from nine positions along the 3-point line. Using your finger fling the ball toward the basket to take a shot. The speed and direction of your fling will control the speed and direction of the ball. In Sudden Death Mode if you miss a shot, it’s back to the locker room! For each mode, you’ll need to master several different techniques of shooting off the backboard to score from every angle around the court, and at every position you’ll have a chance to shoot a “bonus ball” for even more points!

3 POINT HOOPS features your choice of 2 rockin’ soundtracks and ‘state of the iPhone’ 3D graphics.

KEY FEATURES:

- CLASSIC MODE – shoot from nine positions around the 3-point line!
- SUDDEN DEATH MODE – Miss one shot and its game over!
- UNIQUE POSITIONS – Five unique shooting positions around the court!
- BONUS BALL – Bonus ball worth even more points!
- CHOICE OF TWO BACKGROUND MUSIC TRACKS
- SOUND AND MUSIC VOLUME CONTROLS
- LOCAL HIGH SCORE BOARDS
- GLOBAL HIGH SCORE BOARDS – compete with other players around the globe

Or, just use the link provided in the first post

Personally, I don't see any added allure, although I understand the attempt at strategic marketing for "March madness".

LKA Basketball Mania and Arcade Hoops are shooting games as well. What does this have to offer more?

Streetball is the only full B-ball game currently with this offering, but Handheld Games is working on one.

Hoopster 3D is coming out soon (see image below)
