Basketball Shooter is a retro-style basketball game created by Tim Kamenar for mobile devices. With simple swipe controls and physics-based gameplay, it captures the challenge and satisfaction of basketball shooting.
The game displays a standard basketball court. Balls appear at the top and the goal is to swipe to shoot them into the basket before they drop off-screen. The timing and angle of the swipe determines the accuracy of the shot.
The physics calculations give the shooting a realistic feel – long swipes shoot faster with less arc. The ball bounces off the backboard and rolls around the rim realistically. You unlock new basketballs and courts as you hit shot milestones.
Game modes include timed games for high scores, “knockout” modes where you must make baskets before time expires, and “elimination” where you retry missed shots until you fail 3 times.
Basketball Shooter stands out with its simple one-touch controls and physics engine tailored for trick shots. Bank shots off the backboard and expertly aimed swishes feel very rewarding. Unlockable courts like streetball or icy add challenge.
It captures the core skill of shooting itself. Players enjoy competing for the most swish streaks and trick shots. While accessible, perfecting bank shots and accuracy takes practice. Basketball fans will appreciate the polished virtual shooting.
With its arcade-style gameplay and variety of modes, Basketball Shooter provides a compelling bite-sized basketball experience on mobile. Fans of physics-based skill games will find it an addictive high score chase
