With the NBA season just two weeks away, you were probably wondering just who was going to step up to the plate and bring some much needed hardwood action to the iDevice. If so, you should be pysched to hear that EA Mobile will be releasing their fabled NBA Live series on the iPhone/iPod Touch.
NOTHING BUT NET. NBA LIVE by EA SPORTST™ delivers the most realistic 5-on-5 action available for iPhone® and iPod touch®! Tip-off anytime, anywhere, and watch your game come to life in vivid 3D. Even replay your most awesome plays. It’s fun and intuitive enough for the casual gamer, but also delivers the authenticity to meet the demands of the most hardcore basketball fans.
Having recently released Madden NFL 10 and FIFA 10 to the delight of sports gaming fans, EA look to score once again with the iPhone’s first fully featured 5-on-5 basketball title. While Franchise mode seems to be missing, you’ll still be able to play with all 30 teams and real players to boot. That’s right, you won’t be seeing the likes of Kubei Branyon or Lebon Jimenez anytime soon. For all basketball junkies (including myself), be sure to keep an eye out for its release later this month. More screenshots and details after the break.
Minigolf… This one word sure brings fond memories. We used to go there every weekend when I was in high school. We even used to sneak in after dark with our own clubs and golf balls to play for free. Since then, this delightful game always had a special place in my heart. That being said, I was really excited when I got my hands on Adrenaline Golf Online, one of the few mini-games ever to successfully deliver the same wacky golf experience.
RPGs? Check. Action titles? Check. Sports Games? Double check. Gameloft, one of the leading game publishers at the App Store, already have a handful of sports apps covered on the iDevice: Real Tennis, NFL 2010 and Real Soccer 2010 to name only a few. Now you can also add baseball to their resume. Bearing the name of Yankees star shortstop Derek Jeter, Gameloft hope to clean up the competition with Real Baseball’s solid 3D graphics and realistic gameplay elements. While specific details are scant at the moment, we’ve been provided with some screenshots and gameplay trailer for your eyes to feast on.
The other good news? Gameloft are also holding a contest that involves you, a baseball and a video cam for a chance at one of 10 prizes, including 3 iPod Touches just waiting to be won. Sweet. More after the jump.
Football fans have one more reason to rejoice now that the closely-knit Korean family are united as qualifiers for the first time ever in the world’s biggest sporting event, the FIFA World Cup. The other reason? Gameloft’s Real Soccer 2010 is out at the App Store and so far has sustained a fan-lined introduction.

When it comes to sports games, tennis is right up my alley. It’s one of those games that seems to just work extremely well regardless of the platform. I’ve been on the look out for one that would be a worthy candidate for my iDevice and was pleased when I saw Bluetooth Wireless Tennis With Agnieszka Radwanska.
When it comes to iDevice gaming, Gameloft has been on an absolute tear of late. They have recently added the hot selling Gangstar, Modern Combat: Sandstorm and Blades of Fury titles to their already impressive App Store resume and even more highly anticipated games are on the horizon. Next in line is Real Soccer 2010, the follow up to their best selling soccer (or as the rest of the world like to call it, football) game for the iPhone/iPod Touch.
Real Soccer – the #1 soccer game on the App Store – is back for the most exciting season yet! Lead your favourite club to victory and bring glory to yournational colours as you play for the cup!

Baseball Slugger Home Run Race 3D is the only place where hitting 50 consecutive home runs will not lead to suspicions of performance enhancing drugs.

This game can be enjoyed by anyone willing to pick it up and start playing. Once you do, you’ll find simple controls to master and online play that’ll have you fighting to grab bragging rights over other players, both friend and stranger alike.
I have been a fan of Glu Mobile for quite some time. The globally known development group have been publishing games for various mobile platforms for over 8 years and have consistently delivered some of the most well known console and PC games to various mobile devices. Lucky for me, the opportunity to review a Glu game and polish up on my mini golf came along at the right time.
Boxing is sport I can get into. The rules are straightforward. The objective, punch harder and better than the other guy. Console games have progressed through the years to become almost as exciting as the real thing, so the prospect of being able to box on my iPhone was very appealing. Chillingo, an extremely popular game publisher for your iDevices has recently launched Touch KO. A 3D boxing game that they hope will knock out the competition.
