New NBA All-World Mobile Basketball Game App: It’s Game-Time

Welcome to a new era of Hoops. If you like Pokémon GO and basketball, there’s a new free mobile app you’ve got to check out that’s basically an augmented reality basketball game. NBA All-World, a new mobile basketball game app launched by Pokémon GO developer Niantic, along with the NBA, NBPA, and NBPA’s innovation arm, THINK450, takes hoopers on an adventure to develop an elite team and crush challenges.

In the game, players are tasked with recruiting NBA stars, collecting fresh swag, ruling the court, and staking their claim in special arena tournaments en route to solidifying their legacy as the All-World baller. Find out more about the free app and why it’s worth downloading! Plus, see how to download it.

The new free-to-play game has three big components hoopers will enjoy:

  1. Recruit players by moving around in real life: The app leverages geolocation capabilities to let players find and compete with basketball fans and NBA players in their area. Similarly to Pokémon GO, it requires hoopers to get out and about in their neighborhoods (so they can discover new locations and courts in real life) to recruit their roster and compete in games, as well as unlock gear, boosts, challenges, and more.
  2. Game play challenges: Take players on in different drill mini-games and 1v1 games to be able to recruit the best players. Compete in leaderboard challenges at more than 100,000 basketball courts in the real world with Rule the Court. Challenge friends and other players for the top spot. Compete in tournaments to win exclusive in-game items.
  3. Customize your players with gear: Collect gear from Drop Zones to customize your player with exclusive gear from some of your favorite hoops and lifestyle brands. Look out for special Gear that improves player stats and outfit your team with sneakers and accessories that help you stand out from the crowd.

While some users say it’s the best basketball mobile game ever, others report they’d like more moves within the one-on-one games and more character customization. Also there have been freezing issues reported, and overall it’s a bit light on content since it’s brand new. We’d love to see WNBA players added.

“Our version of an NBA basketball game starts with exciting one-on-one gameplay and expands from there to include the major elements of basketball culture, including music, fashion, sneakers, and more, all of which are integrated into real-world locations,” Niantic Founder and CEO John Hanke said in a statement.

Niantic plans to make money by selling “boosts” for player stats like offense and defense, which improve performance in the mini-games reports TechCrunch. So players who shell out can advance through certain aspects of All-World faster, but players don’t need to fork over cash if they play relatively often.

“We look forward to our fans fully immersing themselves in NBA All-World as they develop deeper connections with players, the league, and each other,” said Matt Holt, head of consumer products at the NBA, in a press release. “Through our collaboration with Niantic and the NBPA, this game helps expand the world of the NBA and its culture into virtually every neighborhood around the globe.”
