EDIT: Super Big THANKS for the Front Page Newgrounds! Even when I make a game that's too hard, you see the potential!

Take on Kim Jong Un in one-on-one, no-holds-barred basketball as Dennis Rodman! Do you have what it takes to win?

I made this game for Gameological's Play the Year 2013 in about 20 days, which makes it officially the shortest development time that I've ever had. It's a small game, but I added some medals and scoreboards to keep it interesting. Enjoy!

Arrows - Move
Space - Jump/Shoot


There's only one major problem I have with this game. Kim is scoring when he's not. At least that's what it seems like to me. Sometimes he'll shoot for the goal and miss it, yet the game will say he hit it. Maybe I'm not seeing this right, but that's what it seems like. Although, this is a fun game.

Yeah, sometimes when the ball is travelling fast enough, it doesn't look like scores. I'll admit that the collision isn't perfect, but to be fair, if you chuck it from the other side of the court, that'll happen to you too :)

Original concept and challenging, although I narrowly beat him in the first go. The only thing I would add to this is to have a button to snatch the ball, but fouling or so would give Kim a point. I found the entire game very humourous, and it thoroughly deserves 4.5 stars for a brilliant game that I replayed. I can't give it 5 stars because I don't even give Peacekeeper or Road of the Dead 5 stars, and they have months of effort put into it.

This is also probably the best game with this sort of art style (think it's called retro) ever. You should think about perfecting this rather than following others into the sort of drawn anime art thing-a-ma-jig, because you can really brand this as your own.

Hey, if you're putting it on the same platform as Peacekeeper, I'll take it. I'm glad that you liked it! But have you played any of my other games before? Retro art is already my jam :)

Very very original concept. It's quite difficult to defeat the chubby man xD but it's awesome.

-Ability to steal/foul.
-Being able to jump in a direction, not just straight up. When you jump for the ball f.e. and don't get it, and Kim does, he has a headstart that will usually put him into a very good scoring position. I know he is supposed to be superior, but it should be because of the unfair rules, not unfair gameplay.
-Better detection of where a flying ball is going. I can always just guess. Also frustrating, as the A.I. usually knows exactly where to go.

With those improvements I could really enjoy this otherwise fun little game.

-Sounds like an okay idea. I like the current simplicity in controls, but it's also sort of simple in gameplay.
-You could always not jump for the ball. It's sort of a risk reward kind of thing, really.
-I think you want to pay attention to the shadows, and less the actual player/ball. I agree that it can be hard to tell where the ball is, but that's really a limitation of the 2d style that the game employs trying to represent a 3d game.
