Basketball ~for the lonely~

by jagttt - 48 Hour Compo Entry

removed the new version since I think I fixed more than bugs... so here's the original 48h version. Newer version is in another link.

This is my take on the theme this time. When I was younger I really enjoy playing basket ball by myself. You can do all the weird things and shoot as more as you like. And when thinking about 2D basketball game one should immediately relate to the NES game <<Nekketsu! Street Basket - Ganbare Dunk Heroes>>. Here's a video to remind you:

So in the game we have three baskets in a row!
I really hope you can enjoy this. This is by far my favorite game by myself and I think I'll continue working on it and try to make it more fun after this compo.

ad / arrow - move and control shooting
z / space - hold to jump and release to shoot
r / x - reset the ball

Nice - very clean!! A really good mechanic (the basket ball path line is a great idea)
