Philippine Slam! Mobile's Basketball Game Underdog

I have played a lot of mobile basketball games, as a mobile game player I wanted games that are easy to understand, fun to play and casual. Most of the basketball games I played are either flip or swipe shooting games that are fun, I tried playing NBA2k and the NBA LIVE, they are super fun games however I found these games too serious/realistic for my casual taste, and then there was Philippine Slam! The game is obviously a Filipino made game so I'm a bit skeptical. The game screenshots are compelling and the gameplay video makes the game even more interesting (Its similar to NBA Jam - it seems), so I downloaded the game. Did I mention that the game is FREE?

Philippine Slam by Ranida Games is indeed a hidden gem in the sports game category, I remembered playing NBA Jam but I find Philippine Slam more interesting in terms of gameplay. The controls are very easy to understand, shooting is easy. I can also easily do cross overs and turnarounds before doing a slam dunk!  (In NBA Jam, I'm required to flick my device to do a crossover.)

Doing Slam Dunks in this game is presented spectacularly! Especially the super slam dunks. The game camera actually zooms into the player making the Slam dunk more epic! Oh and not to mention the taunts! Very funny!

Another notable feature that the game has is you can use your own picture and add yourself as one the team's player - Cool! I tried adding myself and a friend an had a blast playing with our faces in the game as we do the high flying slam dunks!

Though there are still a lot of work that needs to be done in the game, like more animations, multiplayer is not yet finished however in comparison with other basketball games out there with millions of millions of downloads this game is only hitting between the 1m-5m mark, unlike other not so good basketball game having 10m or more downloads.

People, if you love basketball DOWNLOAD this game! The teams and players are from the Philippines but the game is a blast to play! You can even check out a real PBA teams on youtube, you will find them very interesting.

Fun fact: (From wikipedia)
The Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) is a men's professional basketball league in the Philippines composed of twelve company-branded franchised teams. It is the first professional basketball league in Asia and is the second oldest continuously existing in the world after the NBA.The league's regulations are a hybrid of rules from the NBA.

See! the game is about a league that is the FIRST in ASIA and second in to the NBA! I really believe that this game requires better attention!
