    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.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    You bet Carly. We were aiming for a truly 3D physics driven environment while retaining the ease of play and excitement of an arcade experience. More importantly... an engine that we can build on for other basketball games in the future.

    We are preparing to submit to Apple today, I will post a link to the app store when it gets approved.

    You can see some gameplay videos at redknightgames[dot]com

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Very cool Matt. Congrats on the submission - and more importantly GOOD LUCK with the approval process. I don't think you should have any issue, but then again, its apple. ;-)

    Red Knight is proud to announce that Hoopster is now live on the App store!

    Can't post links... so search for Hoopster

    Thanks for your support of the game and we look forward to adding even more great features in the near future. Hope your success in the game is better than our March Madness brackets.

    Matt

    @rare, thanks! It was a painful week, but all things considered... I have heard that is not bad!
