Hoopster (on Sale $2.99->$0.99)

Hoopster - $2.99 - 14.8 MB

"Coming soon" topic here at TA.

First impressions:


- Nice graphics
- Tilt to aim (just in PRO it seems to make some difference tho)
- Online high score
- Some arcade touches: fire, freeze and brick
- You don't have to wait for the next throw like in LKA Basketball Mania


- You always have to type your name to submit a high score
- Only one landscape orientation (hard volume down)
- A bit repetitive since the tilt is not sensitive enough to create a challenge

After playing a few more rounds I have found the game has a great presentation but a bit flat gameplay. An alternative "power + throw" method (like in LKA Basketball Mania) along with a more sensitive tilt to aim (at least in PRO) would make it more enjoyable. Rate: 3/4.

If it's just a glorified version of "Around the World" I'll gladly snipe for 99c
