‘Aqua Hoops’ Brings Back Memories

After seeing the strong response to LED Football, it’s clear that there are a lot of long-time gamers out there.

In a recent retro game discussion in our forums, I remembed another old physical-toy turned iPhone-game called Aqua Hoops [App Store].

This game revives the old water tank toys in which you mashed buttons to propel the balls to their baskets. The game is rather simple and is likely to only appeal to those who played the original. Features include:

  • Real underwater feel
  • Tilt sensitive physics
  • Simulated air bubbles
  • Multiple gameplay modes: Free play, One minute drill, Three minute drill
  • There are no sound effects, unfortunately. This gameplay video shows it in action (music not included):
