This whole “aim with the line and hope you make it” type of basketball isn’t new at all; I’ve seen a couple of games that have the same gameplay mechanics. But what Godzilab did to this formula is take it to the next level via online play. That’s right, you’ll be competing against 6-8 people at a time trying to receive the highest score, lighting up the 4 bricks on the backboard to receive powerups and such.
Every achievement you achieve through Plus+ will also net you a new ball, each with their own skills and special abilities. And while it provides for a somewhat addictive experience, it is limited to only one gameplay mode and online play. You can play offline of course; you just won’t be able to unlock any balls or compete with people online, which is basically the whole point of the game.
