Maneuver your character using the Left and Right Arrow keys. Make sure to catch the basketball by running toward it. To jump and take possession of the ball or strike an enemy, use the Up Arrow key. A double jump can be performed by pressing the Up Arrow key again in mid-air. Use the Spacebar to attack your opponent and steal the ball. You don't need to press the Spacebar to score. Instead, you just need to get close to the opposite basketball hoop and your character will automatically dunk the ball. But you do need to time your jump correctly to reach the right height to dunk the ball.
Your current score will be displayed on the electronic scoreboard at the top of the screen. Each successful shot will earn your team two points, but a powerful Mega Dunk can earn you three points. The first team to reach 21 points will be declared the winner of the match.
Another way to help your teammate is to position yourself in an open area, making it easier for them to pass the ball to you. Additionally, you can use your character's special move by pressing the X key, which can help clear the path for your teammate or allow you to score more easily. Remember, basketball is a team sport, and teamwork is essential for victory!
The basketball power-up bar located at the top left corner of the screen will gradually fill up as the game progresses. Once it is fully charged, you can perform a Mega Dunk, which awards more points than a regular shot. Additionally, performing a Mega Dunk can sometimes activate a special move unique to each character, adding a fun twist to the game.
