Infinite Basketball is, as it names explains, a basketball-themed smartphone game, that comes to us from KaimanGames Co. Ltd. – a Korean game studio that brought us other interesting titles such as Maid & Slime and WorldWorrior in the past.
In this review, we are going to look at some of the main characteristics of Infinite Basketball, see what are some of its strengths and weakness, and decide whether it’s really worth downloading and, of course, playing.
Right off the bat, if you’re a new player, the game offers you a trial mode, which allows you try everything out before you hit the court. And while a tutorial is always welcomed, you won’t actually need it that much, because the controls are quite intuitive.
You only need to touch and hold the ball that’s coming your way, and then release your finger in order to hit. You have both regular balls and rainbow-colored ones, and if you hit three rainbow balls, the game enters the “Fever Time” mode that allows you to earn bonus points.
We’ll probably mention this again down the line, but if you like playing older games, there are certain aspects of this game that will appeal to you. And the first things you’ll notice are the 8-bit style graphics.
While some games offer nothing more than ordinary stick figures, don’t worry, this game is as good to look at as it is to play. Both the background and characters are nicely designed, and the controls are nicely placed, so you won’t have to hold your phone in an awkward position while you’re playing.
Of course, sound is one of the most important factors in any game. In all honesty, the soundtrack won’t sweep you off your feet – it’s a catchy little 16-bar loop. But hey, it’s a lot better than some games that don’t bother providing more than 4 bars of music.
The sound effects, on the other hand, sound like they come straight from an Atari-style arcade. So if you’re an old-school gamer, you’ll definitely feel a little nostalgic while you play Infinite Basketball and you’ll surely love its sound.
There’s not much to complain about here, because Infinite Basketball definitely delivers on its promises – it has an addictive gameplay that will have you mash your fingers for minutes or even hours.
The only negative thing I can really say about it is that it crashed once during the two hours I played it, but even some much more popular games are far more unstable, so I can’t really complain.
As I said above, if you’re looking for a good smartphone game that will keep you entrained for an hour or so, you should download Infinite Basketball and give it go. Whether you’re a basketball fan or not, its gameplay will keep you going and going.
All in all, this game is recommendable to nearly everyone. But be warned, as with all highly addictive, smartphone games – you may end up spending way more time with it than you’ve originally planned to – and honestly – you probably will.
