Astonishing Basketball is not your usual sports simulation game. It's not only about stats and ratings. It's not just drafting prospects, trading players, exploring strategies and signing free agents, or building a dynasty. In Astonishing Basketball, you're writing your own GM life story with one goal in mind: win the Cup. But the road to victory is not an easy one!

*Play offline, whenever you want, wherever you want, as much as you want! Play the game on the road, slam dunk during your lunch break, or sign contracts between commercials. It's the ultimate basketball GM simulation!

*A living world
Astonishing Basketball features a simulated but living world. Fans are posting about the game and your brand new rookie. Players send you messages about their concerns or their contract. Or you might have to improvise what's for dinner when the team cook gets sick! And thanks to the brand new "Rivalry", discover the terrifying Regina Dargor. Nothing will stop her from crushing you and your team!

*You're the general manager! Step into the game, call for a timeout, and replace your tired veterans with some young talented players to dunk on the other team, or ask them to defend the paint more tightly! Adapt your strategy and coaching systems to feed your shooting guard more or prevent the other center from rebounding too much. All your choices as general manager have consequences and will decide of the victory or loss.

*The new training system makes it even more important to scout players from a multitude of universities, and draft the best of them to create the ultimate team! Don't forget to build your arena and add shops to attract more fans to the game. Review your tactics and rotation strategies and show the others who's the best manager.

*Follow the scoreboard, the rankings, and the reactions from the fans, Astonishing Basketball reporters and players. You can also post your statistics online to compare your performances to other GMs in our daily and weekly leaderboards!

*A fierce online competition
While the entire solo mode can be played offline, you can also decide to play online at any time, and participate in one of our many multiplayer modes! Try to become the King of Basketball in the Astonishing Contest and join a franchise of champions. Or try to impress others in one of the daily events like Rookie Friday. And if that's not your style, the Path of Legends let you experience exciting games and rewards in solo!

*Live incredible stories
As a coach and manager, you do have a life too! In Astonishing Basketball, you can take your team to a burger restaurant, help local associations, meet your favorite author, become a rock star and even marry the love of your life!

Train your players, from all-stars to drafted rookies, it's your job as manager to find the ones who have the potential to become legendary basketball stars and build a basketball dynasty with the best strategy. Download this game, it's a slam dunk!

Enjoy the game!

hear me out pt2

this is my second review, this being after played the game for a little longer. the game is still great, my favorite actually. i do however find it strange how i finally grinded to get a full legend team, yet i still lose to the worst teams due to my legends performing terrible. one team on the roster is currently on a 25 streak as i speak, probably more after this review being sent. i checked their roster and their team is far better than mine. i have a full roster of coaches, scouts, and legends as mentioned before. i've tried changing the gameplay but that makes it worse no matter what i try. also, sometimes the runs are ridiculous. i'll be up by 10 when suddenly the opponents go on a 35 point run without me scoring at all. i wouldn't care so much if i didn't have full legends but that aspect feels so fake to me. i wouldn't be so annoyed if i could atleast go on a 5 game streak but my legends struggle to do that. lastly, i kinda wish career mode would allow you to get the daily rewards for training points, and maybe change up the 10 day streak reward to something that benifits your player. other than this i still love the game, im just beyond frustrated with the things i listed.

Thank you so much for your very kind review. I'm doing my best to make sure you can all enjot the job of basketball manager ;D.
Regarding sound, I absolutely understand, and I'm still looking for ways to find some good music to add to the game. One day for sure!
Regarding training points, you're absolutely right, and that's why the brand new "Path of Champions" gives you plenty of nice rewards when playing solo! I don't want to force players who don't play online to go there to earn these TP, hence this new feature (check it out by tapping on the "calendar" icon of the main screen).

I hope all of that helps, and that you will love the upcoming updates :D. Take care!

In-app purchase confusion

The game is really great, probably the best basketball simulation app on here. However the in app purchases it’s a bit confusing like god mode. Are you purchasing the ability to use god mode on the game or on that one save I’d be fine with lucking out on achievements too. However It’s feel like a waste to use god for one save and could possibly lose the save file and waste $4.99 furthermore, the interface for using like ‘make an all star’ could and the high-school and the university page and so on a bit easier to navigate seems like a lot thrown on you. But overall best simulation game fire sure maybe add some interactive stuff for the 3pt contest or dunk contest like an interactive mini game. And lastly it’s hard to tell who wins the all star (eastern vs western conference matchup) where it should show who had what amount of points respectively because when I coach the all star game I never know if my team won (maybe a trophy for the coach or all star mvp.)

Developer Response ,

Hey there! Once you've unlocked God Mode, you can use it in any number of saves, forever. I agree it's not very clear, and I'm gonna do a little something for that in the future. I also like your idea of a trophy for the All-Star coach ;)
Thanks for the review!

Perfect update

This game got the perfect amount of new and improved, I’m loving the offline play with more realistic gameplay for example, in abk21 I had 5 all stars on my team and I didn’t even make the playoffs, with this new abl22 I have 2 all stars and I’m doing fine it’s just way more realistic. I’m also loving the little stuff like the Ability to post on your team account or even a burner XD, The rosters are now in game, Minor Leauge is no longer a grace yard for players you don’t need but a place for young players who won’t get a start or minutes and chance to develop. Not to mention the online mode witch looks polished to the max. Overall this is a amazing update to the game and I love it. This is the best GM game on the App Store hands down.
