    Hello all,

    I am new to the forums, and wanted to announce an upcoming game that my company is developing for the iPhone/iPod Touch.

    Hoopster features a realistically rendered 3D basketball court, real shooting physics and two action-packed modes of play full of special effects for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

    1) Quick Shots

    This fun, addictive and action filled game challenges players to shoot from random locations in 3 different zones while collecting power-ups and racking up the points.

    2) Shoot Around

    Before you hit the showers, take a spin around our practice court to perfect that half-court shot and gain the advantage over your friends, family and the world on our high score leader boards.

    Features Include:

    o Detailed 3D basketball arena with real physics, realistic sounds and incredible effects

    o “Quick Shots” game with countdown clock and power-up bonuses for maximum score

    o “Shoot Around” gym to perfect the power and alignment of your shots

    o Intuitive accelerometer and touch controls for shooting and moving around the court

    o Hot and cold streak particle effects and fun feedback messages

    o Tracking and reporting of several stats including swishes, bank shots and even airballs!

    o Rookie, Intermediate, and Pro difficulty settings

    o Top 10 leader board for all three difficulty levels

    o Options for music and sound effects volume as well as screen dimming

    Other options and more exciting games planned for release in future versions. Thanks for your support, and please let us know if this game looks interesting (couple of beta pics attached) and any suggestions you may have.

    looks good. i hope you plan on updating it with more game modes. too many developers just release an application and don't plan on improving it at all. instead they just move onto another application.

    the game seems simple, yet interesting. . .but would get boring after a few minutes unless there were more modes.

    Thanks Four20,

    We have posted a Beta YouTube video here:

    It should give some idea of the gameplay using swipe/touch and accelerometer.

    Future expansion is where this concept actually started... market acceptance is where we must start :). There are at least 5 additional game modes that we have discussed based on this or a very similar mechanic. Multiplayer is the next big feature idea for this game.
