Flick NBA Basketball game
Freeverse has produced a new game for the iPhone and iPod touch, Flick NBA Basketball. Players choose from 30 different NBA players, who collectively represent every team in the league, and take part in one of five different game modes: 3 Point Shootout, Hotshot Arcade, Long Shot, H.O.R.S.E. or the Ball Spin mini-game. Gamers can challenge a friend to one-on-one play, or else stick with the computer.
3 Point Shootout has players trying to make three-point shots from set positions around the hoop, while battling against a 60-second timer. H.O.R.S.E is a one-on-one competition in which players take turns making the same shot; if one player fails to copy the other, they are given a letter towards the mode's namesake. Once the player misses five shots, they lose. Hotshot is based on arcade basketball machines, and has players toss into a hoop surrounded by a cage. The goal is to score the most baskets in 90 seconds.
Long Shot places gamers away from the three-point line, eventually as far as center court, and tasks them with sinking four shots in 30 seconds. Lastly, Ball Spin features a hand holding up a ball with one finger, and has players swipe the ball repeatedly while trying to keep it balanced.
Flick NBA Basketball is available from the App Store for $5.
