Review Hood Hoops Basketball

Jay Feldman
Neat graphics, decent game play, quality physics
Is lagging, bad controls, ads spoil the game process
Hood Hoops Basketball is all about the free throw. You're playing a basic game of hoops in the hood, so there's graffiti everywhere, old looking jalopies, brick public housing freeway underpasses, and all sorts of clues that you've landed on the wrong side of the tracks. Nope, I didn't make up these stereotypes, I'm just reporting on what I see in this game.
There's 3 modes of play, timed trials, arcade style and challenge mode; or at least that's what I could glean from the three icons presented. To play, just touch and hold the ball you see, floating in midair. Then drag and slide your finger to adjust the aim and trajectory, which is not an easy task, given the wonky responsiveness. Once you're satisfied with your aim, just lift your finger off the screen to release the ball and let it rip. If you're lucky, it will end up in the general vicinity of the hoop. And if you're super lucky, it'll actually go into the net. You see, the mechanics here are so sloppy, that any sort of skill or ability you possess goes straight out the window.
The graphics are actually pretty good, offering realistic stereotypes of life in the streets. The physics are actually quite good, as is the animation. The controls are where everything falls apart. Yup, there's a few power ups to earn along the way, like a wider hoop to improve your chances of sinking a ball. The app also features copious ads that not only ruin the play, but kills the performance too.
Hood Hoops Basketball could be so much better than it is. As it stands, it's just a mediocre game that's destined to be uninstalled and forgotten.
