August 18, 2020
ATLANTA (August 18, 2020) – In partnership with developer Cosi Games and publisher Gamejam Company, the world-famous Harlem Globetrotters have announced today the release of a new iOS and Android game called Harlem Globetrotters Basketball.
The Harlem Globetrotters are worldwide icons, synonymous with family entertainment and great basketball skills, and represent 90-plus years of breaking down barriers, acts of goodwill, and a commitment to fans that goes beyond the game. The Globetrotters on the court feature some of the best athletes on the planet, unmatched fan interaction, incredible ball-handling wizardly, rim-rattling dunks, and laugh out loud family entertainment. The Harlem Globetrotters Basketball mobile game brings the excitement of a Globetrotters experience to millions of consumers through their mobile devices.
“Since we are in an extended timeout at the moment, we are excited to offer a new way for fans to interact with and experience the Harlem Globetrotters through the release of this new mobile game,” said Jeff Munn, executive vice president and general manager of the Harlem Globetrotters.
The new Harlem Globetrotters Basketball mobile game is designed as a free-to-play casual game. It offers users the challenge of sinking consecutive shots in order to advance to new levels, while attempting to overcome an increasingly difficult set of obstacles. As users progress through the game they enter different settings, such as a playground, a gymnasium, and a beach court. The game features several actual, current stars of the Harlem Globetrotters, as well as a couple of cameo appearances from the Washington Generals, the Globetrotters long-time on-court opponent.
“It is a real joy to develop a game based on a brand with such legacy as the Harlem Globetrotters,” said Joshua Blitz, CEO of Cosi Games. “We hope users of all ages will enjoy the gameplay and have fun on the journey with the Globetrotters.”
