Not bad, kind of rough when your opponent goes off and hits nine or ten in a row. One bug I saw is that it's possible to get the ball stuck on the rim. If this happens, it never returns to the player.

I where about to give the game 4 (both here and on the scoreboard) here is why I gave it 5.

TLDR ver.:
A hard but fair game, and like real basketball figuring out where to aim, makes the game.

Full version:
After winning in groups I where surprised that there where a tournament bit, I played that but WOW the COM became good at hitting, like impossible good! On my next play I chose to skip groups since it now felt pointless. I then tried the tournament 3 more times where my best play where 2nd round...

This where were I wanted to give you the 4.

The turn from 4 to 5 happened with me finding a spot in the background felt useful when aiming. But it couldn't really test it out since I got slaughtered. I then did a whole new game-through this time WITH the group rounds. My theory worked and I got to practice it so this time in the Turny I lost at the 2nd last round (not sure if it where the semi final but around that). I lost because I choked two shots, and I knew that I lost on the 2nd... (seems like 2 is a bad number for me).

Anywho this showed me that the is possible to win. So great work keep it coming!

Hey, thanks for the great review! TBH, when talking about my sports games, I always made them... challenging, from my earliest days (I remember getting dozens of hate emails back in 2006 for my game Drop Kick). Simply, I like hard games!

Indeed, CPU gets better as the tournament progresses. I, as a creator of the game, admit that winning the tournament is a bit problem for me (I win the cup in about 20% of campaigns). I can't share with you any tricks, since there aren't any. Except - try not to shot high shots, since you lose time. Besides that, you can only hope that CPU misses some (oh, and there's a rare glitch where the opponent's ball gets stuck on the hoop so you can win the game peacefully - I decided not to fix that.)

Pretty decent game! I enjoyed myself and would play it again later. Although there are no major objectives to make you feel involved, making it so that you can just walk away and play anything else whenever. A fun time waster overall.
