This is why we love the App Store. The other afternoon, developer Tantrum Solutions shot us a note announcing that it has released a Dennis Rodman video game in 2012. Rodman FT [Free], as it's called, puts you in the shoes of "The Worm," and has you shooting free-throws as fast as possible across four different arenas. Mechanically, it's more similar to one of those physical arcade basketball games than any game-game we've seen.

Oh and check this: the game's "photorealistic" Rodman looks like he is being rendered from a bunch of pre-recorded video files. That's right -- we have a brand new FMV game on our hands. We've got a video of the game in action below. In it, you'll learn a lot more about the game's pay structure and get some general commentary on Rodman FT. Check it:

    It's actually NOT an FMV game. You can't get that many video files(at native iPhone retina resolution) and pack them with all the other graphics and executable in a 40MB package. The game was built in Unity 3D and Dennis Rodman is inserted into the 3D environment using techniques that are not related to '90 FMV.

    Lol Eli's apathy towards the game was the funniest part of the video!!! That and the 'force pull' thanks for the morning laugh!!!

      That's how he managed to get all those rebounds. The Worm has mastered the Force :)

    Don't care about the game. I just want that icon.

    Dennis was the Michael Jackson of the NBA, but I'll always remember his contributions to the Detroit Pistons juggernaut more than 20 years ago.

    Wow, this is just awful. Is that his real voice or an actor? I can't believe a game this bad has in-app purchases...
