How To Play the Game
You need to aim and hit the basket as many times as possible. The basket’s direction will keep changing to keep the game interesting. So, how do you get around your shoots and hoops?
It’s easier playing the game on your phone than on a PC.
On a Phone
Put your thumb or index finger on the ball and slide it up. Try to aim the basket. Every direct shoot through the basket gives you 3 points.
If the ball hits or lingers on the rim before dropping into the basket, you get 2 points. If a coin pops up, try to shoot through the basket to get more coins.
On a PC
Is the game simple? Try playing on your PC. If it’s a touch screen, slide up the balls using your thumb or index finger.
It’ll be challenging if you’re using a mouse to score points. Place the pointer on the ball, right-click, hold it down and move the pointer upwards to shoot your ball.
It has simple mechanics, but it’s hard to get high scores.
How To Get High Scores
The key to getting more scores lies in your swipes. As you’ve noticed, the basket will start to move after a few scores. Use different techniques to swipe in straight. Also, you’ll observe that it’s easier to hit the net if you’re using your right index finger than the thumb.
Use the Coins
Shoot the ball while aiming the coins. You can get new balls or customize your balls. Although the balls will not affect the game, they will make it more interesting.
Three-pointers Translate to More Scores
The first three-pointers will fetch you three scores. If you keep hitting consecutive three-pointers, the three scores will keep tripling. Use short and long strokes to score more three-pointers.
Facebook’s basketball is a simple and fun game you can play if you’re bored. You only need to launch your app and press the play button. Or, invite your friends to make it fun.
Take the chance to practice your shots. With correct techniques, learning to use your right index finger, and careful observation, you’ll have fun shooting some hoops on Facebook.
