Developed by Playtoniq, Aqua Hoops is a modern version of the water-filled basketball games you used to play as a kid. The harder you push the virtual plunger, the faster and higher the basketballs shoot up toward the baskets.
The concept of the game is simple-launch as many basketballs as you can through the various hoops in a set amount of time-but Playtoniq nails some little details. Aqua Hoops includes the sound of sloshing water when you hit the plunger, and the water at the top of the screen sloshes when you tilt the device. The game also does a great job of using the built-in accelerometer, so you can twist and move the iPhone to reverse direction on a stray basketball that may be hanging on the rim.
