First Look: StreetBall for iPhone/iPod touch, win a free copy

Cory Bohon

Are you tired of being bored when you are on a long trip? Want to play some b-ball while you are stuck in a class? If you are inclined to do so, Streeball could help you out. A new game for the iPhone/iPod touch, Streetball [iTunes link] gives you a classic basketball game anywhere you happen to be.

You can choose between three different game types: Two on two, First to 21, and H.O.R.S.E. There is a tutorial mode that allows you to grasp the basic idea of the game. The game works by using the accelerometers to move left, right, to the back, or forward; when you are ready to pass or shoot, press the appropriate on-screen buttons. While you are playing a game, you can pause it by selecting the pause button in the top-left corner.

This game has great graphics that are cartoonish/comic book-like, which I tend to prefer for these types of games. You can adjust the background volume, and the computer difficulty. Also, you can adjust the tilt sensitivity of the accelerometer -- something I wish every game developer would implement.

You can check out Streetball for $3.99US or test your luck in our giveaway ... read on for details.
