This game will truly challenge your basketball skills. You will have to play one-on-one with your opponent. You can choose the difficulty level accordingly and also you've got an option to play with a partner. The 'Easy' level for beginners can be good for practicing, whereas the 'Hard' level can be really difficult. Remember to keep a tab on your stamina level and of your opponents too, to play smart.
In this game, you will have to shoot perfect baskets. The game is very simple and easy to play. You do not compete with any one, all you need to do is aim for perfect baskets. To begin with, you will get an option to choose the player of your choice and then you are ready to play. On the court, there would be a glowing circle which will be moving randomly. You will have to be inside that circle and aim for a basket. Keep a watch on the timer, as you've got 3 minutes to score as many baskets as you can.
I thoroughly enjoyed playing this game. Amongst all, this was the one I loved the most. The game can be really addictive. Your job, again, is to score as many baskets as possible. The best part about it is that the more difficult your shot is the more points will you make. So you can really try various shots from as far as possible and earn great points. You will have to aim using the computer mouse and to get the ball back, you need to press the spacebar on your keyboard.
You will be amazed with the graphics of this game. The game looks real and feels real too. It starts with you having the possession of the ball. You will then have to take the ball to the opposite basket. While doing so you will be charged by opponents from the opposite team. You will have to dodge them and manage to take the ball in the circle. Once you've done this, you will then get three chances to hit perfect baskets. If you really want to enjoy playing virtual basketball, you've got to play this game.
Another one which will test how precisely you score the basket. You will be competing against your opponent at the basketball court at the back of your house. You will then have to choose from which position will you be shooting. Once the position has been chosen, you will then have to aim for the basket precisely using the spacebar on the keyboard. If you want to become a virtual Michael Jordan then try this game out.
Fire It Up
Another game with some amazing graphics. It is a jump shot basketball game. There would be a moving circle and you've got to take the shot while being in that circle. You can move the position of the player with the help of arrow keys and take a shot using the spacebar on the keyboard. Aim for perfect baskets and make your points.
