Basketball Running & Shooting Game - Shootin’ Hoops

Rating: 8.4/10 - 3409 votes

Basketball is undoubtedly one of the most athletic and skillful ball sports on the planet. When you see absolute basketball superstars such as Kobe Bryant and LeBron James gliding effortlessly across the court, and sinking outrageous 3-pointers, you cannot help but jump up and applaud aloud. However, now it’s time to see if you can match the exploits of these legends of the court by immersing yourself in an extremely challenging online version. Shootin’ Hoops is a tricky online basketball simulation game that combines the two key areas of the action; running as quickly and evasively as possible with the ball, and the specialist skill of shooting baskets. First, you must go on a solo run, muscle your way past 5 opponents, and make it all the way to the three-point line. Then, you have to get ‘in the zone’ and sink a three-point basket from distance!

This stuff is all bread and butter for our NBA heroes – but how will you fare? You don’t have to be a die-hard basketball aficionado to enjoy this fast-paced online ball sports activity. Fans of any challenging movement-based skill game can relish the opportunity to show off their sharp keyboard tapping ability and quick reactions. Great concentration and determination are also key attributes as you try to make it all the way from one end of the court to the other (but don’t celebrate too early, you still have to execute the shot once you get to that 3-point line!). Ok Hoop Shooter, it’s time to light up the court with your fancy footwork, perfect handling, and nerves of steel!

How to Play: There are two different courts where you can show off your skills; Stadium, or Street. If you choose Stadium Mode, you play in a top-class arena in front of thousands of fans. If you choose Street Mode, you play on a concrete court in an urban neighborhood. The objectives and controls are the same in both Modes. Your ultimate goal is to score as many points as possible by making it to the three-point line, and shooting as many baskets as you can. There are two stages; 1) Running with the ball, and 2) Shooting for the basket.

In the Running stage, use the Arrow Keys on your computer keyboard to maneuver your red-shirted player around the court. Your goal is to make it all the way from your own defensive line to the opposition’s three-point line (close to the basket on the right hand side of the court). The catch is that there are 5 blue-shirted opponents trying to stop you. The trick is to weave in and out of your slower opponents, changing direction quickly in order to escape their tackle efforts. Once you make it to the 3-point line, the game switches to the Shooting stage.

Each time you reach the 3-point line, you are rewarded with 3 shots at the basket. Here, you have to judge the direction and power of your shot. A Yellow Arrow moves automatically around the basket area. You must stop this Arrow as close to the center of the basket as possible by pressing (and holding) the X Key on your keyboard. Once you press and hold the X key, the red Power Bar in the bottom left corner of the game screen begins to fill up. Try to release the X Key when the white indicator turns green (this indicates an accurate shot). If you hold X down for too long, you miss the shot long due to using too much power; and if you release X too quickly, your weak shot falls short.

You have 3 ‘lives’ in total, and there are 2 ways you can lose a life: 1) By running the ball out of play (outside of the court lines); and 2) by allowing an opposition player to steal possession of the ball from you. You can see how many remaining lives you have by checking the basketball icons in the top left corner of the game screen. Once you run out of lives, it’s game over. Enjoy the action!
