[prMac.com] Honolulu, Hawaii – Gopher Apps is happy to announce the release of Hoops! Free Arcade Basketball 1.0, its new fast paced basketball arcade game for the iPhone (iOS 4.3+). Use your finger to shoot balls into a moving basket. Sinking moneyballs gives you more balls, 2x scores, and more. In Multiplayer, moneyballs let you send attacks like bowling balls and smaller rims to your opponent. Give it a shot! (pun intended).
1. No other basketball game on the iPhone has these game mechanics:
Holding your finger down and aiming with a dotted line is no way to shoot a basketball. With a touch screen the only way to shoot a basketball is to shoot it with your finger. That’s right, shoot it with your finger. The velocity of your finger determines how high and how far the ball goes.
2. Easy to learn. It’s like driving a car:
The first time you press the brake pedal on the car, it’s a bit sensitive. As you learn to drive, your control of the brake pedal gets to be impeccable. That’s exactly how shooting is in Hoops. Shooting bank shots, swishes, or bouncing it off the ground becomes an extension of your thoughts.
3. Head to Head multiplayer matches:
Play over Game Center or locally through Bluetooth against your friends or enemies. Send them special attacks like taking away their backboard and mess up their shots!
4. Gigantic rims, moving baskets, bowling balls, trick shots:
The “Arcade” in the name is there for a reason. Like in the arcades, the basket moves forward and back, up and down. It gets larger, smaller, and even loses the backboard at times.
5. Different Game Modes:
Play single player and score points to unlock moneyballs. Moneyballs help you score even higher with things like a bigger basket, faster ball return, and more balls. Or you can play the 24 timed Challenges and challenge yourself to make only swishes, shoot with beach balls, or make some trick shots with your new skills. For Game Center players, you can compete for the world record and beat your friends.
6. Did we mention Multiplayer?
Multiplayer is by far the funnest aspect of the game. Compete against your opponent by scoring as much as you can. When you make the special Moneyballs, you can cause your opponent to have to turn their device upside down to play. Add us as a friend and challenge us!
7. It’s Free:
Let the advertisers pay for this game so you can enjoy some good fun arcade basketball for free. This game has no coins or virtual currency so there’s no waiting around to play.
