Below is a collection of free online basketball games that can be
played in the comfort of your own home. Whether you are
interested in shooting some hoops a slam dunk, we've got what
Shot Clock Showdown
You have 30 seconds to try to hit as many baskets
as possible. Don't let Eddie down!
Eddie's Shot Clock Countdown is an entertaining
game. Your objective is to beat the shot clock by sinking as many balls in
the basket as you can before time expires. There are a fixed amount of
baskets that you will be required to make on each level in order to advance.
As you move up in the ranks and get to harder levels, you will be required to
make more baskets in order to advance. By this time, however, you should
be getting better at the game so it isn't as hard as it sounds. There is
certainly nothing to get discouraged about! Use the SPACE bar to control
the power and precisions of your shots. The closer that you get to the
center of the meters (these areas are known as the 'hotspots'), the better your
odds of swishing the basket will be. Each basket is worth 100 points.
If you score two or more baskets sequentially, you will receive an added bonus
Two shots in a row - 100 bonus points
Three shots in a row - 150 bonus points
Four shots in a row - 200 bonus points
You will be awarded 50 bonus points at the end of
each level for every second that remains on the timer. This means that
getting all of your shots off quickly is an important strategy if your goal is
to maximize your total points. There are also two 'bonus balls' that can
earn you special bonuses. If you sink a red basketball, you'll be awarded
an extra one thousand points. If you are lucky enough to make a basket
with a blue ball, your time will be extended by 5 seconds. Making these
bonus balls count is an important part of mastering Eddie's Shot Clock Showdown.
