During an encounter with the Basketball Hoop, a player may throw the ball by:

  • clicking/tapping any point on the screen (by default);
  • flicking/swiping the object from the bottom of the screen up toward the target.

Both modes form different speed and throw direction based on the last position of finger or mouse cursor, what makes the game even more interesting. Throw Diligently and Try to Get the Best Score!
