Another iPod freebie of the day
I've been enjoying this one for a few weeks now.
Based on a Flash game that was doing the rounds a while back, Crazy Basketball is perfect iPod gaming – slick, simple, fast and addictive. It's a two-minute time attack where you have to throw the ball into the basket as many times as possible by quickly adjusting its half-trajectory.
It's got OpenFeint achievements and leaderboards for challenging your friends, cute graphics and a funky tune, and it controls beautifully. And it's free, so you know what to do.
Remember, if you don’t have an iPhone or iPod Touch yet with which to enjoy the now-est gaming of the modern zeitgeist, you can still grab the games anyway with iTunes while they’re free, and upload them to your iPod when you get one.
And if you’re ready to join in the fun, you can do it at a giveaway price by subscribing to WoS, where subscribers learn how to pick up a brand-new 32GB 3rd-gen iPod Touch for just £6 – no strings, no contracts, no referrals, no getting other people do do anything, just a fun bit of exploiting capitalism for half-an-hour’s effort.
