A New Way to Enhance Your NBA Expience
Video games have been played on video games systems, such as Xbox or Playstation for years. Sport games in general, are usually played on one of those two systems. A new app that has come out is NBA 2k12, a new game on the iPad. This app makes the NBA game, just like you’re playing on a video game system. The difference is that you’re playing on the iPad. You’re playing NBA wherever you go, car, bus, or train. You can whip out your device and play a period of the game whenever you like. Not only is this a basketball game, but it’s of the NBA 2k franchise.
Everyone has different wants and needs when playing a basketball game. This NBA game does it all, it has all the features of the console gaming device. First off, there is a quick play option that allows you to play a quick exhibition game whenever you like. The cool thing about this game is that, if you close the game or put the cover on the device, you can still pick up in the exact spot you left. Most people playing this game will just enjoy the quick play option, but there’s more.
There is a season mode like in normal sport games for all those who like to control the whole outcome of one’s season. You can take it anywhere and sneak in a quick game whenever you prefer.
Thirdly, there is a situation mode, which allows you to be under the pressure when trying to win. You can start the game in a deficit and try to win it by the end. You can start the game with which ever score or time you prefer, that way you can see if you have what it takes to make a big comeback win with Minutes to go.
This game also features the very popular Jordan challenges from the previous NBA 2k11 game. For those who are new to the series, Jordan Challenges is the innovative way to take you through Michael Jordan’s career. You will get the chance to play Michael Jordan’s famous games, as well as play with all his different Bulls teammates over the year. You will have tons of challenges as you play in his career to keep you busy along the way. The only downside would, be that is does not have the option of playing the NBA legends mode that you would see on the video game consoles.
While playing this iOS game, you will have two options of controlling your players. The first option is the standard d-pad, which you will see in most games that has players move around. You use the d-pad on the screen like you would an analog stick on a controller. On the right side of the screen, you will see the options to pass, shoot and send an alley-oop to your teammates on offense and a block, steal and charge option when playing defense.
One Finger Controlling
The second option if the standard version is too difficult is the one-finger option. The way this works is, by allowing the device to move your players around while you control the other options like pass and shoot. When you touch a player on offensive, the ball gets passed to him and when you hold a player who has the ball he shoots. On defense it works the same way, the players will move around and you will be responsible for blocking and stealing the ball.
As you can see, there is something for everybody in this game. Between the 2 different ways to control the game and the many options of what games to play, you will never be out of options.
