We’ve just released Basketball Master Challenges, a “basketball-throwing” game on iOS and Android (including Kindle). In this game, you aim with your finger to score a number of required goals to pass to the next level.
The mechanic should be familiar as there are many games using this mechanic. Our game is different from the rest in that it has a specific goals to achieve. When the player achieve the goal, the game advances to the next level. There are 60 levels in the game and 6 different environment.
Also unique is that our game has dynamic camera that changes between levels. The camera also does interesting things such as following the ball, or switching to a first person perspective when you throw the ball high enough. We were able to achieve this because we use a 3D game engine (Unity). Earlier in the process we’re thinking about making the game full 3D; however we decided that the game mechanic (touch and swipe to aim) is more intuitive in 2D/ semi 2D viewport. So what we did is to slightly tilt or rotate the camera between levels to change the appearance of the game. These alternating camera angles actually produce variety of challenges to the player.
Also unique is that we have 6 different environments and even moving/animated goals.

Stay tuned, we may make a 3D basketball game in the future.
