Krikey is an AR gaming mobile app that allows players in the same space as you or thousands of miles apart to play together. Now, it has added a new basketball game mode.

The new mode adds a virtual basketball hoop in your real-world environment, and challenges you to throw as many balls through it as you can in 30 seconds. You can move around in a specific area and take your shots from anywhere you want on the field. The app even supports ducking and jumping as well.

Like other games in Krikey, you can play this basketball mode with a friend via the built-in sharing menu of Android. This means distance is no longer relevant. Whether the other player is in the same room or halfway across the world, you can still play together after just a few swipes on the screen.

Of course, you can also choose to play by yourself. If you do, Krikey lets you record and share your gameplay online. The app even comes with a built-in video sharing platform where many players share their cool plays and the unique locations that they play in.

The hoop is set at a fixed height from the ground, meaning you cannot cheat by just standing over the hoop and dropping the balls in it. You can play it anywhere, such as while sitting at a table or on the toilet. If you want, you can even take it outside to an open space for a large-scale game.

The gameplay is very easy. Once you have set up a hoop, the 30-second timer will begin. Then, you can throw the balls by simply turning your phone toward the hoop and flicking your finger. It is very similar to throwing Pokéballs at Pokémon in Pokémon GO.

One thing to note: the game requires Google's ARCore toolkit support, so you will need a relatively modern phone to play it. Don’t worry too much about it, though, since most flagships and even mid-range smartphones from 2016 or later will work just fine. Another requirement is that your phone must have Android version 8.0 Oreo or newer.

Krikey is already one of the easiest ways for a new player to get into AR games, and this addition of a competition-friendly flick basketball makes it even easier. It won’t be the last addition to app either. More game modes will probably come in the future, which is likely to result in Krikey growing in popularity. The app is very convenient, it can be played anywhere, and its nature encourages users to get their friends to play it as well.

You can get Krikey on Google Play Store and App Store.
