Halloween Basketball Game for Kids Game Play Instructions
How to Play
Draw doodle lines to help guide the basketballs into the baskets.
Starting the Game
Click the green and red play button in the center of the screen to start the game.
Your web browser automatically saves your current score and your all time high score.
Use your mouse cursor to position on the screen and click your left click button to begin drawing a line segment. Keep the left click button pressed and drag to the destination to help guide the ball into the hoop.
Tap the screen with your finger and drag it to draw lines.
There is a sound control button in the upper right corner of the screen.
In general the basketballs are quite forgiving provided your line is flat or slopes down toward the basket.
The balls can bounce off either side of the screen and back into the basket.
Any ball which does not make it into the basket costs you one of your three lives.
Basketballs can bounce off one another on their ascent, so make sure you start your guide line wide enough that it accommodates any ball being thrown off course.
The pumpkins have similar physics to the balls, but tend to come later into the round and move faster.
If any pumpkins make it into a basket then it blows up & you lose a life.
Your lines do not need to be neat & you can make multiple line segments. Keys to your line should be:
that they slope down toward the basket
then terminate level with or slightly above the rim
you do not leave enough space for the ball to fall between the line and the rim on its initial descent or on a bounce off the rim
If the ball gets stuck you can make multiple additional line segments to try to push the ball, but you have to create them quickly.
Multiple rims & balls
As you advance through the game you go from getting 1 ball at a time to getting 2 balls at a time, then 3.
You can use the same rim for multiple balls. You do not need to make each ball go through a different rim.
If there are multiple rims and they are at uneven heights you can draw a line across the two rims after all the basketballs are above it and this will cause the balls to roll into a hoop while preventing any pumpkins from doing so.
The game is suited for gamers of all ages who like basketball or Halloween.
The game has no adult content.
