Bonfire Media releases Midnight Basketball for Android
Basketball is one of my favorite sports, and it’s nice to see some good Basketball games start to come out for Android. Such is the case with a new game called Midnight Basketball from Bonfire Media, a company that’s best known for making apps. Midnight Basketball is the company’s first attempt at a game, and sometimes the transition from apps to games isn’t an easy one.
Midnight Basketball ball isn’t really a full fledged basketball game per say, but more of a pop-a-shot style game. You’ll fire off shots towards the hoop by pulling backwards and letting go; it’s the basic physics game slingshot action that most of us have become accustomed to. Once you let off the first shot a timer will start, and you’ll be given 60 seconds to score as many hoops as possible. You’ll get points for every shot you land a shot, and extra points for clean shots, and for the red, white & blue moneyball. You’ll also get some extra points for pulling off “trick shots” which basically consist of bouncing a ball off another and getting it in. It’s a very straightforward game that anyone should be able to pick up and play with ease.
There’s a lot to like about Midnight Basketball like its nighttime backdrops and fun commentary. That being said, it’s not a deep game and there are no real extras of any kind. There have also been a lot of complaints about unnecessary download notifications; I haven’t received any, but then again I haven’t had the game installed for over 24 hours yet. Overall, Midnight Basketball is a fun game that’s good for some quick-play fun, but lacks any long term replay factor. It’s still a good game if you want some quick fun; you can pick up Midnight Basketball for free on Google Play.
