Count that baby, and a foul! Android basketball game app reviews
Just because you like a particular sport doesn't mean you'll
like the games associated with that sport. And visa versa. I'm
not a big golfer, but I love golf apps like
Let's Golf 2
. On the other hand, I love baseball but have
yet to find a computer game or Android app that can keep my
But, when it comes to basketball games and apps, I seem to love
them all. For different reasons. So, let's take a look at three
of them, and you can check them out yourself.
Basketball Shot - DroidHen Casual
Basketball Shot is basically the same game that you might play
in an arcade. A basket the either moves or doesn't, and you keep
shooting trying to beat the clock and score a certain number of
points for that round. Simple? Yes. But, a fun time killer.
Users give it about a four and a half star rating.
Basketball Lite - Ellis Markov
This was the first Android basketball game app I downloaded, and
it's still pretty good. Rather than swiping your finger to shoot
(like in Basketball Shot) you stretch and line up a trajectory
line, and release to shoot. There are five different game modes,
but for the most part you are trying to score as many points as
you can in a pre-determined amount of time. Basketball Lite gets
4.2 stars and would have been worth downloading, had it not been
Tip-Off Basketball - IOPixel
This is the latest (and might I say, greatest) of the basketball
games that I've tried so far. I noticed on the Basketball Lite
page in the Android Market that it made a reference to check out
the sequel, Tip-Off Basketball. They seem to have different
developers, but there are certainly similarities.
The way you shoot is similar to Basketball Lite, using the
trajectory technique and a time limit. But, that's almost where
the similarities end. In Tip-Off Basketball you are given a
variety of specific tasks that you must complete before moving
on to the next level. Things like making 12 baskets, making a
bank shot or even throwing an airball.
I'm still new to the game, but you get points or coins or
something and you can buy stuff with them to make the game more
interesting or fun or something.
Maybe it's because it's new to me, but this game seems to be the
most fun of these three. And the accuracy of the shooting is
much better. I give it five stars. It averages 4.7 stars
