Well known publisher Miniclip have soft launched their new multiplayer basketball game Basketball Stars. Players will be able to play 1v1 basketball online against others from around the world (at the moment just in soft launched countries). There are two modes to play. The first is your classic one-on-one style of attacker vs defender where you take it in turns to defend and attack. The second mode is shooting race where you must score as much hoops before the clock hits zero.
There are over 300 customizable items to unlock and also more than 40 basketballs to play with. The game itself has some impressive looking graphics and from early impressions it looks to be quite popular.
Basketball Stars is available for free on the App Store in Australia, Canada and New Zealand. There is no current confirmed worldwide release.
