DescriptionHomerun Battle 3D
is baseball game for mobile devices where the player takes the role of a professional batter. The player gets to match up against other sluggers from all over the world. In a match each player has a homerun gauge and the first player to max out his gauge wins. For each win the player is awarded with points and gold balls. Gold balls are used to purchase items in the game. As the player earns points his goes up from rookie to slugger, champion, master and legend. Player with a higher rank has access to more challenging channels. In addition to the match up mode the player can also play offline in the arcade mode. Here the goal is to reach a score as high as possible. The game ends after ten outs.
The game uses a combination of tilt and touch controls. The tilt is used to control the swing of the bat. A white box appears on the screen that is used to aim. To hit the ball the player then has to touch screen at the right movement for a good hit. The scoring system is based on a number of parameters. The score is given in proportion to the hitting distance. Homeruns gives 100 points with an extra 100 points for consecutive homeruns. The player can also do a cycling (making homeruns in all three directions). After that the player gets the chance to do a called shot. A hit on these leads to further called shots until the player fails. Bonus points are possible by hitting LED boards, lights, poles and advertisement plates. The player can also do a monster shot by sending the ball more than 500 ft. The game also features different kinds of item balls which gives different benefits to the player. Some of these can doubles or triples the hit score while others give extra lives or decreases the opponents abilities.
Each player has a profile with different statistics. It's possible for the player to customize the appearance of his slugger. Different haircuts and faces can be selected. It's also possible to buy items that changes the player's outfit such as glasses, helmets, jerseys, bats and shoes. A global ranking lists exists so that the player can compare himself to other players from around the world. There's also a built in achievements system.
