3D Arcade Basketball (5 out of 5)

First things first, this game is free. I couldn’t believe that an iPhone basketball game as entertaining, as fluid and as feature-rich as this game could actually be free, but it is. Let me just make this short and sweet. This game simulates the classic arcade basketball and features great 3D graphics, awesome physics, 3D virtual scoreboard and your very own virtual hand to shoot some hoops. The game is easy to pick up as well. All you have to do is flick the ball to any height, speed and power to get it into the hoop. If you missed throwing those hoops in the real arcade, 3D Arcade Basketball on your iPhone is your best way to reminisce about playing it. (Download link)
