Windows 8 Basketball Game: Funky Hoops

Funky Hoops is a free basketball game for Windows 8 and 8.1. In the game, you get to choose your team and then compete against the computer using the other team. The game works on pretty simple controls and although the game’s graphics are not that spectacular (don’t get me wrong, they are still pretty good!), the game is noteworthy because of its small size and ridiculously simple controls. The game runs smoothly and does not hog your battery. The menu controls are easy too, and over the game makes for a good download.

Funky Hoops is available for free from the Windows App Store.
