Have you tossed a flaming zombie today?

Fling a freaky, flaming zombie to it's explosive end in this hybrid game combining basketball, circus acrobats, and hilarious zombie deaths!

SUMMARY
Zombie Toss Basketball is a hilarious hybrid game combining zombie destruction, circus acrobats, and of course basketball. The goal of the game is to toss flaming zombies into the main 100 point basket to unlock other higher point hoops and air cannon above the court. Higher scores also unlock newer zombies with distinct appearance, sounds, weight, and height for extra challenging shots.


FEATURES
- Complex ragdoll physics combined with challenging court obstacles results in dynamic and re-playable zombie destruction.

- Unlock new freaky zombies with their own unique sounds, appearance, and dynamics for variable fun (pro version only).

- Crowd reactions, awesome fire and meteor visual effects, along with all the squishy, bone-cracking, and explosive sounds means a feast for the senses.

- Experience endless play in Unlimited Mode (only available in the pro version) if you are in the mood for mindless (no pun intended) zombie mayhem.


BACKGROUND
After the smoke had cleared from the 'Near Zombie Apocalypse' of 2023 (or 'NZA' for short) there was a great emptiness felt by those humans who had survived.

Combined with the immense rage and violent emotion that festered in the wake of the NZA, the door was opened to what would become man's greatest achievement to date: Zombie Toss Basketball!!!

Humanities collective spirits were rekindled by the savage and brutal nature of the new sport, a sadistic hybrid event, cobbled together through vague recollections and perverted memories.

Some foul homogeny of elf tossing, circus acrobats and professional basketball; Zombie Toss Basketball would not only mark the pinnacle of humanity's achievements, but also its bloodlust.

Take the role of a legendary Zombie Hurler and satisfy the masses with your skillfully executed exterminations and your satisfyingly sweet "SWISHES". Perform wicked skill shots and electrify the mob with a carnage creating cannon kaboom.

Leave no zombie unscathed!!!

I'm perplexed.

No one person has any feedback or opinions of this game?!?

It's free to try out and there is a game play vid posted ...

I'm guessing the object of the game is to NOT hit the ads while you're flinging zombies? =oP

No... but really... it's... what it looks like...

you pick up a zombie... drag him to the center of the screen, and let go, while hoping he makes it to the basket...

what kind of feedback do you really want for this kind of game?

Did you actually try the game for more than 10 seconds?

Because we have been getting really positive and constructive feedback:
http://www.cocos2d-iphone.org/forum/topic/17757

wow

It seems (based on your postings of other games) that this type of game is not your preference?

In any case thanks for being quick to respond.

At least I know people are actually able to see our posting.

Back to coding for our soon to be released update! Zanier zombies, harder hoops, a leaderboard, and lots of other customer recommendations to make it bigger and better!!!!

Game Impressions

I played it but only for about 10 minutes...because my son stole my phone and played for the next 45 minutes! It's a funny concept and actually a game that requires and rewards skill. I think the screenshots don't really do the game justice. It plays and looks better than you would think.

It's free so not sure why people wouldn't give it a shot. My son made me upgrade to Pro which I didn't mind at all.

I'm finding this response alone an excellent reason to not try your game. Didn't really need it though; the ads and zombies sealed the deal without it.

To be fair, the poster never played the game yet made negative comments about it. The response could have been better, but he was probably upset that somebody would post about a game they never played - especially since it's FREE. If he played the game and said it was bad then it's different. I know he never played because you don't drop zombies, you fling them in the air while aiming for the hoops - trying to get them through more than one hoop for extra points.

Developers aren't the only ones that should be responsible posters.
