It's basketball time and it's free - Hoops for the BlackBerry PlayBook

By James Richardson on 1 Dec 2012 02:58 pm EST

Hoops is new into BlackBerry App World this week for the PlayBook and whilst it may not be the most exciting game available, for a free download it is worthy of checking out.

Hoops (as the name suggests) is a basketball game where your aim is to get the ball through the hoop. There are however three games within the game. First up is Free Play where you can practice your skills with no time limits. You can then move onto time trial where you get sixty seconds to score as many points as possible. And then finally is Streak, where you need to see how many consecutive baskets you can get - miss one and it's game over.

Graphics wise the game is pretty good and sound effects are realistic. Hoops may be one of those perfect games for when sitting on a bus or train - just to kill a few minutes. With it being free there really is no reason not to give it a go.

It's basketball time and it's free - Hoops for the BlackBerry PlayBook


First. A bad game. They could have improved it by having a nice music soundtrack with cheering or booing fans.

Will be nice next year when BB10 is on my Playbook, is a big success, and there's tons of devs writing great free games like there is on my Samsung.
I’d rather be a Black Sheep than an iSheep any day.

We don't need crap apps like this being featured. I get made fun enough with my PlayBook already. BB10 all the way!

Do you own crackberry? No. You have no right to tell them to remove the post. Maybe delete your post instead.


At least the game is FREE and DECENT.

It's all very well and good people trying to put up apps and they should be commended.

However, this kind of thing isn't helping legitimise the Blackberry Playbook etc. as a decent ecosystem.

Basically RIM should have a section put aside in AppWorld that are purely apps that have been created by amateur developers to showcase their skills and gain feedback. Essentially apps that really just show one or two aspects of development. Fully featured apps can go straight to the main area of course.

RIM should not be putting such apps into the main AppWorld area. This app is purely a demonstrator of the developers skills.

Quality not quantity.

Basically add another section into AppWorld called Dev Showcase.

Then at least people will know that they are downloading stuff that isn't maybe all that useful but gives an idea of whats possible and lets new developers show off what they can do without 'customers' getting annoyed.
