What's it about?
In FLIP DUNK, you've entered into a creative slam dunk contest in which you have to use trampolines to do flips before slamming a basketball into a hoop. Do enough flips before landing a basket and you get to move on to the next round. Now, with no end in sight, you'll have to focus on the number of tricks and dunks you can make before you miss and need to start over.
Is it any good?
It's one thing to make an arcade game for mobile devices that's a bit too simple; it's quiet another when that game is just an excuse to constantly runs ads. In the arcade sports game Flip Dunk, players participate in a slam dunk contest by using simple touch controls to do flips before slamming the ball in the net. But unlike real dunk contests, this has you jumping off buildings and other structures, and using multiple trampolines, in an attempt to do three, four, maybe even five flips before you place the ball in the hoop.
While this sounds like it could be a fun but simple game, it's completely ruined by an over-abundance of ads. Not only does a static one run along the bottom of the screen all the time, with a second static ads running in the main menu, but video ads pop up frequently between rounds, even when you tell it that you'd rather not watch an ad to keep going. Even worse, the game's ad mechanics seem to be out of whack because these video ads are often the same. In a half-hour, you might see long and short versions of the same ad dozens of times. And while you could always buy the ad-free version you can also just delete Flip Dunk off your device faster than you can say "dunkadelic."
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about advertising. Flip Dunk has tons of ads that can interrupt gameplay, but why do you think the developers did this? Obviously, they want your money, and want you to purchase the ad-free options, but do you think there's a better way to do this?
Does the action of this "unrealistic" sports game make you want to go outside and play a sport instead? Would it make you want to go to a sporting event?
