A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
This app is easily accessible by players of all ages. With a very intuitive and user-friendly interface, players need only to touch the screen to adjust the ball's angle and then touch again to toss it. The entire game consists of players trying to make free-throw baskets over and over again.
Products & Purchases
There are external advertisements that appear in the background of this free game. Players have the ability to disable these ads by paying a 99-cent fee.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Underground Basketball is not a full-fledged basketball game, but rather a free throw driller. It allows players to try to make as many free throws as possible in a limited amount of time. Players have to line up the angle and power of their shot just right so that it swishes through the hoop. The goal is to get the highest amount of successful shots as possible.
Is It Any Good?
UNDERGROUND BASKETBALL is an extremely limited game, and its name is even a bit misleading. Instead of being a true basketball game where players compete against another player or team, this title presents players with a ball, a hoop, and a stale background. From there, players are tasked with making as many baskets as possible within the time limit. That's it. Unfortunately, through this whole experience, advertisements litter the screen unless players pay for a $.99 upgrade. Considering the high volume of fantastic sports apps in the iTunes store, this one is probably worth a pass.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
