With March Madness just around the corner, basketball is in the air. So why not take a look at one of the more recent basketball games for your Windows Phone? Basketball is patterned after the arcade games that you would find at Dave and Busters, Chuck-e-Cheese or Buffalo Wild Wings. You know the games. Where you are shooting basketballs in a cage and try to make as many baskets as possible in a set time frame. Just think of Basketball as a portable version of those games.
The main menu on Basketball has links to a help section, to launch the game, view your local leaderboard, access the settings (sound and vibration on/off) and view more games by the developer.
The game provides you with four basketballs to use and the screen's layout has the game timer in the upper left corner, your score in the upper right and your goal just beneath your score. To shoot the ball, just flick at it to send the ball towards the basket. If you reach the scoring goal, you'll proceed to the next level.
Your score carries over from level to level but your time shortens. To add to the challenge, some levels have a moving basket or pushes the basket further away to give your shots a three-point feel.
Basketball is a fun game to pass the time with but the balls are a little slow on the return. When you get to the third or fourth level it feels like an eternity for the balls to roll down to where you can shoot them. The slow return does add to the challenge but also the frustration.
Basketball is a free, ad supported game that you can grab here at the Windows Phone Marketplace.
