If you have a few minutes, give the new casual Apple Watch game Hoops Basketball a try.
As you probably could tell by the name, the game is all about basketball. You’ll shoot with a simple drag gesture across the screen. Make a basket, and you’ll score a point while a shoot from all away across the court is a fire shot worth 3 points.
There are three games modes to enjoy. In Classic, you have 60 seconds to shoot as many baskets as possible.
In Time Attack, the clock starts with 5 seconds. Each made basket will give you 3 additional seconds. Score a fire shot to add 5 seconds to the clock.
Finally, in Hoop or Die, you have to score a basket to continue. Any miss and the game is over.
Especially on the larger screen of my Apple Watch Ultra, the game looks great. It takes a bit of practice to master, but it’s definitely a lot of fun. The time and scoreboard is on top of the screen and will also show your all-time high score.
Hoops Basketball is for the Apple Watch and can be downloaded now on the App Store for $1.99.
