Costa Mesa, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/13/2014 -- New iPhone game BasketWars transforms gamers into World War II soldiers with a new twist on standard weaponry; firepower-infused basketballs. Players are challenged to stay alive by firing these basketballs in the air and into the basket. Each distinctively designed WW II influenced ball has a unique weapon to help players defeat the enemy and make the perfect shot. Gamers can channel their inner "army commander" to conquer each battle and destroy the enemey as an onslaught of grenades, missiles, and bullets are all coming their way. With over 60 challenging levels and 6 insane bosses, BasketWars is will test the skills of gamers to their limits. BasketWars can be played alone or with friends. Just for added variety, even zombies make an appearance in this unique new iOS game. Hoo-rah!
After a year and a half of development, the JABB team feels they have created a unique game that can truly stand out in the crowd. Founder of JABB, Jeremy Born said, “We feel the current state of the game market on the App Store is somewhat stale. Companies are recycling the same games and no one is trying to re-invent the wheel. By mixing several genres including sports, war, multiplayer, and strategy, we feel we have created something completely unique, and hopefully people will appreciate that”.
In addition to attempting to make BasketWars a household name, the company is also dedicated to giving back. “Most game companies are concerned with one thing, making money. Here at JABB, we want to give back and make a difference in the lives of others,” said head of Marketing and PR, Brandy Born. Because of this, JABB is in the process of partnering with the Semper Fi Fund, by giving a portion of game proceeds to this great cause. Founder, Jeremy Born stated, “This was a great match as our game has a military influence based on the battles of WWII. Giving back to our wounded warriors is a tremendous cause and is held close to our hearts.”
The Semper Fi Fund, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and its program America's Fund, are set up to provide immediate financial assistance and lifetime support for injured and critically ill members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. We direct urgently needed resources to post 9/11 service members, who meet our criteria for assistance, from the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Reserves.
Up until now, BasketWars has been a self-funded project. The JABB team is nearing the end of both development and savings. They are turning to potential backers to get the word out. Getting a small influx of funding from Kickstarter would allow them to market the game after launch, provide content updates and port over to other platforms this year.
This project will only be funded if at least $10,000 is pledged by Sat, Mar 22 2014 12:29 PM +05:30.
