Posted on July 4, 2011, Phil Hornshaw Use Your Phone to Play Basketball on Your iPad with Slam Dunk Basketball (TRAILER)
One of the things I like about the versatility of Apple’s iOS devices is that they can all be made fairly compatible with one another; and that’s one of the things that makes Slam Dunk Basketball, an arcade basketball game for the iPad, look cool.
Just as long as you have a bunch of iPhones laying around handy, you can slap the Slam Dunk app on a pair of them and your iPad, and then go to multiplayer town. If not, as you can see in the trailer below, you can always just play the game alone. Like other iOS basketball titles, the game is mostly about defining the curve and power of your shot on a 2-D plane toward a basket on one side of the screen. That $900 multiplayer setup is the thing that intrigues me the most, though.
