Basket Fall is, for want of a better term, a new endless dunker by the retro-obsessed developer behind Bean Dreams, and it's out right now on iOS.
It's kind of like Cut the Rope meets Flappy Bird. You have to tap to slice a rope tied to a swinging basketball at the exact moment necessary for it to fall into a basket. Yup. Basket. Fall.
It's not easy but, as a result, pulling off a trick shot or a slam dunk is incredibly satisfying stuff. Read on for a few tips and tricks on how to do exactly that.
How to aim
We should begin by telling you how to aim. Your aim will naturally improve as you play but there are still a few points to keep in mind when you start.
The key is not to tap when the ball is above the net but, instead, to predict where the ball will land judging from the momentum of the swing. The white trail left behind when the rope swings is a good indicator.
You'll likely fail a lot when you first start but you'll quickly pick it up.
Another good trick is to play around with the different balls you unlock. All of the 'nets' in the game are the same size, but some appear to be larger which has a positive psychological effect. Decent balls are baboon, grid iron, and retro bird.
Always aim for bonus points
Basket Fall is a high score chaser so you'll want to get the maximum number of points every time you cut that rope. To achieve that, you should always aim to get bonus points.
Bonus points are earned in a variety of different ways - the easiest of which is to time your tap perfectly so that the ball doesn't hit the rim of the basket. That nets you three bonus points.
If you're feeling lucky, you can try a trick shot. This requires you to ricochet a ball off a wall and into the net and it's as difficult as it sounds. It's worth doing if the net is placed near a wall though, as this method can actually be easier than a straight slam dunk in those situations.
Finally, you can earn a few extra bonus points for a quick shot. To do this, you have to tap as quickly as possible after the net appears and have the ball land in it. It's tricky to pull off and only rewards two extra points so, in most cases, accuracy is a better option.
