Through the Hoop is a unique 2D basketball physics puzzle game with some revolutionary features - unlike anything else on the market.

"Through the Hoop is definitely unique. I haven't seen anything this well done on the App Store that involves 2D basketball." -- Beta tester

Check out the official trailer with lots of gameplay footage on Youtube: (can be also found with keywords: "Through the Hoop official trailer").

Your job is to throw trick shots in order to complete the wide variety of carefully crafted levels. Each level is a problem to be solved with trick shots. The better you are, the more stars and points you get!

You throw the shots with a revolutionary, game-changing, throwing mechanism that is both intuitive and accurate.

Unlike in other basketball games, the revolutionary throwing mechanism allows you to throw spinning shots, which adds a whole new dimension to the game. You know, a spinning ball bounces very differently than a ball with no spin!

With 85 levels in 6 level packs, and free updates coming up, you have a lot of trick shots to throw! Score as much points as you possibly can and see yourself at the top of the Game Center leaderboards!

It's really baller


I really love the game despite all the challenges which actually makes the game better. Many games not including this one (basketball games) are really easy and get boring like 0 to 100 real quick:). But this game is the complete opposite with the challenges given to us and the excitement of winning hard levels. The only down fall I think is the cost if it was .99 I would definitely buy this game asap. Thanks:@

Nice looking game


Thinking about buying full version. Update: went ahead and bought the full version. $2.99 is a little bit expensive but the game looks like an off a lot of fun. I spent a good deal of time on the free version so I don't mind paying for the full game. I have certainly gotten my moneys worth so far! Fun and simple... I like that To the developer, keep up the good work.



I honestly need to go to sleep! This game is awesome!!! It's always a challenge no matter what I always try to beat my high score because this game is so addicting and makes you think and try and try and over again because you want to get swish each time I can't stop playing this game I won't stop playing this game
