Three Point Shootout
Sink as many three point baskets as you can.
The colored basketball is the money ball and
will give you bonus points if you sink it.
This game is played exclusively with the SPACE
bar. It is set up just like the three point competition that happens
during All Star week in the National Basketball Association. You will
control the shooter who will shoot five balls from five different spots on the
court for a total of 25 balls. The first four balls at each station will
be regular balls. The last ball of each set is multi-colored and will give
you additional bonus points if you make it. In the lower right corner, you
will notice an X-shaped graphic with a moving ball. To begin the shooting
process, click the space bar when the ball movies exactly over the center circle
on the X. If you press the button too soon or too late such that it is
outside of the middle circle, then you will likely miss the shot. Next you will
notice the a new ball moves on the opposite side not (forward and back now
instead of left and right). You must also hit the space when this second
ball passes exactly over the center circle.
This game has decent graphics and you will find
that once you get into a rhythm with the SPACE bar and figure out the timing
issues, you will start to knock down shots with ease. When you first get
started, you may find your shot is a little off as you will be pressing the
SPACE bar before or after the ball is in the sweet spot. Best of luck to
you in the Three Point Shootout!
