Basketball Battle is a free basket-shooting challenge game for mobile devices that tests your timing and coordination. You take control of a basketball player and play one-on-one against the computer or a friend. The controls are simple: simply tap the screen to jump and release the tap to shoot. Within this simple system, there's quite a lot of flexibility: where you are on the screen and how fast you're moving can have a big effect on the outcome of your shots.
Take it to the hoop
Basketball Battle isn't a basketball simulator at all, but it is a fast-paced sports action game that demands quick thinking, fast reflexes and a good sense of spatial relationships. The cartoonish graphics underscore the light-hearted nature of the game. Although there are a number of different options and game modes, the fundamental gameplay is more or less the same in each case, meaning that this doesn't have a huge amount of replay value. Multiplayer lacks an online options and relies on split-screen instead, which can be impractical.
Simple fun for basketball fans
If you're in the mood for a lightweight but still challenging sports action game, Basketball Battle can be a lot of fun. It lacks a few of the features that would make it a game worth investing more time in, but it's an enjoyable way to kill some time.
