Flick NBA Basketball Teaser Trailer & Launch Date
April 14th, 2009 by Bryan Barletta

The first officially licensed NBA game for the iPhone & iPod Touch coming your way from Freeverse!
Brian Akaka, CEO and Founder of Appular just sent over a teaser for the latest game from Freeverse, Flick NBA Basketball. This is the third game in the Flick series (Bowling and Fishing with Baseball coming in the near future). The trailer doesn’t show much besides the court, with especially stunning reflection, but it’s enough to peak our interest so I dug a little deeper.

This is the first licensed NBA game to hit the iPhone & iPod Touch and features all-stars such as Shaq, Kobe, Kevin Garnett, LeBron, Dwight Howard, Dwayne Wade and more. This is a game that features ultra-realistic 3D models of NBA superstars where you play different challenges like 3 point shootout, HORSE, and more in a similar fashion to the NBA All-Star Weekend.

Flick NBA Basketball will launch during the NBA Playoffs (late April or May). As we get more info, videos, and screenshots we’ll be sure to keep you posted.

From the Front page

Quote:
"Not a full-court basketball title, Flick NBA Basketball is basically an iPhone adaptation of the All Star Challenge. The player takes the role of a big name NBA player–the strongest player from every team is represented in realistic 3D models–and takes on various skill challenges such as the 3-point challenge, half-court long shot, ball spin, and horse (draw your moves on the court and watch it all played out in 3D).

While the 1.0 title will focus on shooting, Freeverse indicates that future updates will expand the title in various ways.

Flick NBA Basketball will be available in time for (or during) the playoffs, which begin April 19."
Looks like it will be a bit delayed from the original schedule....

Yeah, but just a bit. It's finishing up right now.

I've made a lot of games. You've played them.

Woot. Developer active on the forums cha-ching. Thanks for your response, can't wait for this game. Even though I don't really like basketball, I love the quality Freeverse delivers on the iPhone. This game (by the looks of the court) looks amazing!

Not really, If you read the app info it was stated that this wasnt a full on basketball title, just an all-star shootout game. Looks like another thing that could be awesome turned into something bad (a la MGST)

I think this is just another shooting game. Check out Hoop Jones too. I was planning on doing a full 3D 3 on 3 basketball game but since EA announced they are bringing NBA Live I may cancel my attempt. Might be a while before we have a real basketball game to play on the iphone.
