    What is Streetbal?

    Streetball brings the NBA Street feel to the iPhone/iPod touch platform. With 3 different game modes, two on two, First to 21 and the ever so popular H.O.R.R.S.E. which make this game addicting minus the sloppy controls. Some of the players you may even recognize from the NBA, but I have noticed that even me, a basketball fanatic have been finding people in this game that I do not know.

    Features

    -Ability to switch between control modes.
    -In-Game music control. (Listen to your own Jams while hoop'N)
    -3 different game modes + tutorial Mode. (As explained above)

    Interface

    The main menu is quite nice, it features standard options as, "New Game", "High Scores", and the infamous, "Options", menus. As you notice at the upper right hand corner you see a play button, this gives you the unique option that some games lack, the ability to go back into a game you already started.

    I am sorry I could not get this image into landscape so look at it sideways.

    GamePlay

    This game has great potential, but I'm not gonna lie the controls need some work. It appears that they have stolen then PS2/PS3/PSP/PS1 D-Pad, which is hard to manage in a fast-paced game, especially on an iPod/iPhone. It is also harder than it looks to manage to make a basket, the ball continuously bouces out, which makes the game more fun in my opinion.

    Graphics/Animations (Visuals)

    Outsanding! For a $1.99 USD app it really packs a colorful pucnh, with nice animations throughout the Main Menu and once you get to the gameplay, forget it!

    Ratings/Critique

    Gameplay: 3/5 - Exciting, but could be better.
    Controls: 3/5 - Manageable but awkward controls
    Visuals: 5/5 - Amazing visuals. (Animations and effects)
    Audio: 4/5 - Game music is medeocre (However able to use custom music)

    Nice review. You might want to flip the pictures around though.

    You can do it in Paint or any other photo editor.

    In order to do it in Paint, just go to Image and then Flip/Rotate.

    I bought this app and was not impressed. There is no story mode, which is ok if the rest of the app was good. H.O.R.S.E. takes forever, you continuously swipe your finger across a random squiggle and if you are close enough, which you almost always are, you do not lose a point. The computer almost never misses though (you have no opportunity to create your own shot, everything is just following the line) so you must play forever until the computer finally misses 5. The tutorial does not even work, and the 2 on 2 has sloppy controls and gameplay. Do not buy this app!
