My Mini Basketball
Mind the wind direction and speed and shoot for
the basket. This is a great game to waste a bit of time with.
To get started at the main screen, just click on
the PLAY GAME button and you will be taken directly to the game. The first
thing you will see is a basketball hoop that is overlooking some sort of ocean
or large lake. Don't be mesmerized by the beautiful view! You've got
a job to do and that is making as many baskets as you can. The controls
for this game are very simple - all you will need to do is use the mouse.
Above the backboard is a red windsock. It will show you the direction and
speed that the wind is blowing. So if the sock is pointing to the right
with a 2 over it, then that means that the wind is blowing from left to right at
2 miles per hour. With the mouse, you need to adjust your shot so that you
aim into the wind a bit. The faster the wind is blowing, the more you must
accommodate for it. When you are ready to take a shot, just press the left
mouse button and the ball will be shot at the rim. If your aim is off in
relation to the wind speed and direction, you will miss the shot.
Above the rim on the backboard, your total score
will be tallied. Each basket is worth a total of two points, just like in
a normal game of basketball. Also, at the top of the screen are two
buttons. The first is called 'Achievements!'. If you click on this,
you'll see all of the things that you have accomplished in the game. There
are a total of sixteen achievements, so try to unlock them all! You'll
earn some by scoring a certain amount of points, missing a set number of shots,
hitting consecutive baskets at predetermined levels and clicking on the
different buttons within the game itself. The other button is called 'View
Results'. Here, you can view your total score including the number of
shots that you have taken and your shooting accuracy (the number of shots that
you've made versus the total number of shots taken). Overall, this is a
very simple and entertaining basketball game.
