    I've attempted to make a unique cross genre game in DR. Hoop that is engaging and fun to play. Although it is reminiscent of other games I believe it to be unique in it's style and playability on windows phone. I hope you find the same. I've allowed 12 levels of free play and 40 levels in the paid version to make it accessible to everyone interested. I used the XNA framework and utilized Box2D physics engine, DPSF particle engine, and my own animation sequences. All graphics were made using Paint. NET. I've attached a link to the Windows store and a you tube teaser video. I've also attached a press release that I compiled for the launch event.

    Link To Windows Store;

    Allows Trial Version: Yes
    Limitations: Allows 12 Levels of 40 available in full game. Displays Ads and forces a delay between levels.

    Thanks for the info. I'll send an email to Microsoft. I don't see any reason why it shouldn't be there so hopefully it will be available soon, check back again later.
