Glam Dunk: BasketBelle Is Out Now

By Adam Smith on July 9th, 2012.

Bounce Upon A Time: Basketbelle

Michael Molinari’s browser game But That Was [Yesterday] brought an actual tear to my eye, an act not incomparable to summoning a squirt of lemon juice from a pebble, so I’m pretty excited to have just found out what he’s working on next (via the Indiegames blog, of course).

If you can get past… ME!

C’mon, small fry! Whaddya got! Huh! Watch out!
Here you go!
