    We are proud to announce our new iPhone game coming soon. . .
    10 Balls 7 Cups
    An arcade classic in the palm of your hand!

    NOTE: It's still under review by apple, expect to see it shortly.

    Here's a sneak peak of what it's all about:


    I'd like to specify that it isn't quite out yet. You folks are the first to take a look! You're probably wondering how it differs from the other Skee-Ball clones?
    - ACTUAL 3D, not pre-rendered.
    - Real-time 3D Physics using the NVIDIA PhysX engine!
    - Redeem the tickets you win to buy in-game prizes. Like a pet dragon!
    - Global high scores.

    Well, the video needs work :p

    There was barely any gameplay visible. The only thing I remember about the video is the taco.

    Lol that video was actually funny!

    Although no gameplay footage at all, so I can't give my opinion or know if I will buy it....:confused:

    I sure hope the intent with the video was to come off like used car salesmen because they surely did...learned nothing about the gameplay :)

    Do you really need to see thorough game play if you know a free in-game taco is involved?? :p

    I hope to post a gameplay video soon. Thanks for the feedback.

    Seriously though, I'll wait for reviews because there is already a skiball app.

    There seem to be tons of different prizes and you get to choose out of 7 each time.

    Now the game itself is pretty good and I like the way you can throw the ball using the accelerometer and control it in flight with it. I also like the flashing holes that give you multipliers which do add to the game and allow you to try and get higher scores.

    I do have a few minor complaints though. One thing is that you have to swipe harder to make the ball go in this than in Arcade Bowling which is annoying and to use the accelerometer to throw the ball is hard. Also the graphics don't seem as clean. I know that 10 Balls 7 Cups has "console-quality graphics" but they just seem a bit rough compared to Arcade Bowling. Here are two images compared:

    The ticket system with prizes does add to the game but all you get is the satisfaction of having a list of what prizes you have got and you don't get pictures of them. :(

    I think that the progressive mode in Arcade Bowling would add more to the game (since I only have the lite version) than the ticket system does in this.

    Overall I'm not a particular fan of "Skeeball" but I thought I'd give 10 Balls 7 Cups a go and to be quite honest I think I should have spent my 59p on Flight Control...

    Thanks Palfince, with one or two more updates (graphics for machine and prizes), I would gladly pick this up. I don't know why, but the ticket system really has me.

    EDIT: I also noticed the point system isn't standards. That might be a turn-off for some buyers.

    After re-reading my review it sounds really negative but the game is good but it's just those couple of things that annoyed me. The graphics are the main thing that is stopping me from keeping this on my iPod, but I'm kind of picky about graphics and blurry images...

    I hate the trailer with a passion! Good thing I wasn't on one of my routine midnight app searches.

    I kinda hated the ad but I kinda loved it too. :)

    Trouble is, all I can think of when I see this thread is 2 Girls 1 Cup.

    If you don't know what that's all about, don't ask. ;)
