Customer Reviews

Like the original, but..

I really looked forward to playing this game from my childhood. It (mostly) plays like the original except for:
(1) The buttons are a little small but overall not too bad.
(2) The AI is not the same as the original. The original 'defense' had a pattern to it, probably based on an algorithm. While this doesn't deter from gameplay, it does cause the 'defense' to sit underneath the basket WAY too long, making the game round pointless.
(3) Starting a new game is done by turning off your phone. Not cool.
It is still fun but needs work to be perfect. If this is what to expect from the other Mattel games that they have re-made, I will probably not purchase them.

Good... But could be better

This looks and plays exactly like the original, except the numbers are not the right font.

Arrows are too close to the shooting buttons, so you will often shoot or move the wrong way by mistake. Since you have no tactile feedback, it would be nice for the buttons to be more spread out.

It also seems like the AI will sit under the basket too long, or stay in an impossible defense for too long - even on 1 difficulty.

I can't figure out how to start a new game without shutting down the phone and restarting. Good app, but could be PERFECT with some minor changes.

Fun...until game is over

SERIOUSLY... Need to fix the bug so you don't have to reboot your iphone to play a new game Would be 5 stars if not for this issue...

This would easily be a 5 star game, but after the game is over the LED's just blink continuously and you can't start another game. I have deleted and re-downloaded but problem persists. I didn't have this problem with the football 2 game. Would like to see basketball 2 along with baseball and hockey.
