There is this one game developed by Qwiboo Ltd. called Ball King. Actually I’m pretty interesting in playing it and it’s been a while despite being a very simple casual game. It’s basically a basketball shooter game with physics imbued. Real physics for the ball throwing mechanics though. All you need to is scoring some points with your basketball and to collect some points through it.
Ball King Game Physics and Mechanics
Graphic style of Ball King is quite retro and pixelated, similar to what we had during gameboy era. Though it seems like old school but it’s still fun to see, play, and pretty common for mobile games. So as I’ve stated before, all you need to do is scoring as many points as you can with basketball. The physics on this game is very mesmerizing since every throws is smoothly rendered with proper angle and speed.
At some points you’ll have wind, whether it’s quickening or slowing your throw. You need to score a streak at arcade mode (or you’ll instantly lose if a ball miss) and collect points in time attack mode. Calculate the trajectory carefully as wind will be an important factor for you. At some points, a yellow diamond will be hovering near the ring and you can collect that as additional point. I’m still wondering what that diamonds are used for.
Full Customization For Ball King
Here in Ball King you will get privilege for full environment customization. That includes the ball, place, and costumes. Even so, I still have one thing bugging my mind. You can achieve that yellow diamonds but they can’t be used to purchase anything. Every items are provided as in-game purchases with cash (real money). So everyone who wants to get new stuffs should support the developer by doing in game purchase. Maybe the diamonds will be used in the future when new update come.
Overall, I’m addicted to Ball King. The game physics is amazing and I’m personally love that retro looks. Some people prefer more modern looking with 3D flawless graphic but old school still works for me. I’d be happy if the developer can let gamers buy stuffs with in-game money/diamonds as not every people are not lucky enough to spend money for games or entertainment. Anyway I’m gonna call it end here, pay my blog a visit for daily updates on foodie or gaming reviews, and see you next time.
CHEERS AND HAVE A GREAT DAY!!
