Game Modes

There is quite the variety of game modes. You can go one on one, try to dominate a shoot out or even compete in career mode. If you aren’t one to compete against others online you can always work on your shooting in practice mode.

One on One

In this mode you will play in real time against users around the world. You will choose the court you wish to play on, each court has an entry fee and a prize. The bigger the prize the more shots you will have to complete to win that prize. During your first play you will go through a tutorial that will show you how to block shots, steal the ball, dodge a player and even fake a shot. Using these moves effectively will allow you to score the most points and take home the in-game money prize for that court.

Shooting Races

This race is all about speed. You will choose a court and have a set amount of time to make as many shots as possible. You are placed in different positions for each shot so it’s sometimes harder to make a basket. When the timer is up whomever has the most points wins the prize.
