Cosmic Ball iPhone App Lets Gamers Play Basketball and Bowl in Space

Cosmic Ball iPhone App Lets Gamers Play Basketball and Bowl in Space

Sydney, Australia – InnoLab challenges gamers to play basketball and try bowling in outer space with the launch of its newly updated Cosmic Ball application for iPhone and iPad, an app that puts a fast-paced new spin on two classic games.

Players race the clock to make as many baskets as they can. But in space, players cannot use their hands to aim the basketball – they must bounce it off a platform that is controlled by moving the iPhone or iPad. In an added twist, the basketball can be made more or less bouncy in midair.

“You have to use your quick reflexes to not drop the basketball,” said Chinh Nguyen, creator of Comic Ball. “It’s a fast-paced game that requires a lot of smart strategy to win.”


App Review - Rollover

I love old school pinball games.  There’s just something about these vintage games that brings you back to your youth-even if you are way too young to remember these (and I’m including myself in those ranks). 

Rollover contains that iconic bit of the freestanding gaming, the eternally beloved shiny metal ball.  Like any good game though, Rollover takes the best of what we loved before and adapts it to the current technology-the iPhone. The objective of rollover is to get past blocks and other objects while keeping the ball on the board and avoiding those pesky holes.  All right, so this part isn’t new, but you get the idea.
