    • Basic rules
      • Draw a line to bring the basketballs to the hoop.
        • The very first basketball is stationary and will remain in place.
        • The basketballs after will shoot up from the bottom of the screen.
          • An indicator icon will appear near the bottom of the screen where the basketball shoots up from.
        • To succeed, the basketballs must pass through the hoop.
          • If a ball gets stuck, you fail.
        • If 2 or more basketballs shoot up, you must make sure all of them reach the hoop.
          • If even one of them falls off, it’s game over.
      • You only have 3 available pencils.
        • Each time you draw a line, you use up a pencil.
        • Lose all your pencils before you land a basket and it’s game over.
        • You can use your extra pencils to draw extra lines to protect the basketballs & rim from the bombs.
      • Avoid bombs.
        • Bombs will destroy the balls and anything else it touches.
        • If a bomb passes through the basket you lose.
        • See if you can stop or contain the bomb using lines.
    • Scoring
      • You earn a point for every shot you make.
      • If your shot does not touch the rim you score 2 points.
        • You can still score 2 points if your shot bounces off the backboard.
    • Gems
      • Collect gems by directing the basketball into them.
        • Even if you don’t land a basket, you’ll keep the gems you’ve picked up.
      • You can use the gems to unlock new balls from the in-game store.
        • In addition to the default basketball 5 other balls are available for 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60 gems.
        • Balls are themed after Minions, a golf ball, a clock, a soccer ball, and a tennis ball.
        • All skins play the same with only aesthetics differing.
    • Tips
      • Basket location
        • The basket will normally be on the left or right edge of the screen. When it is on the edge you typically create a line sloping down toward the basket.
        • When the basket is in the center of the screen it makes sense to draw a V-like or U-like funnel directing the ball toward the rim.
      • When to draw
        • On the first level you can only draw a single line.
          • On all subsequent levels you can draw up to 3 lines.
        • Indicators at the bottom of the screen will shown where balls or bombs will enter the screen.
          • Balls and bombs typically move straight upward, though in some cases they can move at an angle.
          • Typically all balls and bombs appear in rapid succession, though in some cases one first appears and then after a bit of a pause another appears.
          • You typically do not want to begin drawing until all ball indicators have shown the entry location and the balls are all above the hoop.
      • Where to draw
        • It is typically best to start your line slightly below the ball furthest from the basket and move it down and in toward the basket.
        • If you have line credits remaining and a ball gets stuck or there is a gap between the line and hoop you can use the remaining line credits to put the ball in motion & fill in the gaps.
      • Gotchas
        • Pinball bumpers
          • When you score around 20 to 30 points some of the levels can have pinball bumpers.
          • If the balls bump into the pinball bumpers from below you’ll almost be guaranteed to lose.
          • Play quickly & try to keep the balls away from the pinball bumpers.
        • Angled ball paths
          • If balls come in at an angle you typically have to start drawing your lines earlier, begin them out wider, and draw faster to offset unanticipated path changes from where the ball entered.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for players who like draw a path games.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
