Whether you’re a sports fan or not, basketball games are often some of the best-made games on any platform. The latest news in the ongoing NBA lockout (which began July 1) is that the owners have decided to skip the preseason entirely, and if the players and owners don’t come to an agreement by the end of the day on Monday, they may start to cancel regular season games.
Whichever side of the argument you’re on, the iTunes App Store has more than enough basketball-type games to keep you occupied. What’s particularly interesting is how developers have come up with clever ways to use the touch screen to play basketball-like games.
This week’s collection of apps is all about basketball. The first lets you slam-dunk a basketball with a swipe of your finger. The second lets you shoot baskets and challenge others online against a sci-fi backdrop. The third is the iOS version of a megapopular console basketball game.
Slam Dunk King (free) is an excellent time-waster, letting you perform slam dunks on a hoop using only swipes of your finger. We were initially skeptical, but only after a couple of dunks it was easy to see how this game could become wildly addictive.
Touch and swipe to dunk the basketballs, but don't forget to swat away the bombs.
