2K Sports studio is known for their sport simulation games with a 2K prefix. For a long time, they were publishing their sports games as console exclusives, especially their NBA, NHL, and Top Spin games. Seems that 2K Games recognized the potential of the mobile platform because they decided to publish their NBA 2K game as a mobile title. NBA 2K Mobile Basketball, as the game is called, is currently available on iOS devices, while Android users have an open pre-registration.
In this game, you have to collect NBA player cards in order to build the Dream Team. This build is known as My Team and it is the core feature of this game. After you create your roster of players, be aware that you will be using those players in each and every one of your matches, no matter which mode are you playing. There are two main modes in this game, called Seasons and Leagues. The Seasons is a standard mode where you play a certain number of games against the NPC. There is a number of rewards that can be earned at the end of the season. It could be a new player card or a new equipment piece you can use to boost stats of one of your players.
League is the mode where are you go against other players online. This mode is based on a rank system, which means that you will be paired with the players who are close to your level of skill. That means you will never face the All-Star team if you have a bunch of rookies and beginners in your team. The good thing is that both matchmaking and loading are really quick, so you will not wait for long for a League match to begin.
There is another mode that you can play, although it’s not that competitive like the previous two. It’s called Drills and is pretty clear what it’s about. As the name suggests, this is a mode where you can practice with a specific player on your team in order to increase his skills. Drills are updated on daily basis, so you can work on a different player on your roster every day.
Successfully completing these Drills and doing well in other modes will give you rewards in form of draft picks. Those picks are like a lottery game in which you select a card which is face down. That card could be either a brand new player, a collectible or an attribute boost.
NBA 2K Mobile Basketball is the perfect game for all basketball fans. If you have an iOS device, we strongly recommend that you download this game and give it a try. And if you’re on Android, go pre-register for it at the Google Play Store. It is completely free to play, so you really have nothing to lose. Well, the only thing you might lose is a plethora of time and your battery life, because this game is a perfect time waster.
