Think you’ve got what it takes to be the next Michael Jordan? How about the next Albert Einstein? That’s right – this is a game that mixes basketball and science! Basketball Dare is a fun and addicting sports skill game where the goal is to get the ball into the basket by using your knowledge of physics and gravity! It’s not as easy as you think, because in each level, you have to shoot the ball over various obstacles, and it gets more difficult as you progress.
Use your creative engineering abilities to maneuver the ball into the basket – bounce it over obstacles and in off walls. You also need to have a keen eye for trajectory in this science-based game, as the ball only goes into the basket if you apply the right power at the correct angle. There is plenty of trial and error potentially required, but it’s so addicting you won’t be able to stop until you get that ball into the basket! Ready to make a Slam Dunk? Show us that basketball magic!
How to Play: Using your computer mouse, left click on the basketball. A Power Meter will appear, pointing whichever way your computer mouse is aiming. Choose the amount of power you want to put in your shot by holding down the left click and moving up the Power Meter. When you think you are aiming right and have the right power, release the click. Your mission is to get the ball into the basket in the least amount of shots possible. If you get it in on your first go, you earn 1000 points bonus, but for every miss, your score is deducted 100 points. As you progress through each level, the obstacles increase and the shot becomes more difficult. Keep shooting and soon you’ll be rocketing up that high score table.
Tip: You don’t always have to put full power on the shot or aim straight for the basket. Sometimes, you can let the obstacles and the walls do the bouncing for you.
