Caught up on the NBA Finals and looking for a good mobile basketball game that won’t wear you out with countless features and more realistic stats and ratings than you can handle? Or one that will allow you to play solo, and one that doesn’t promise games against “real players” who are actually your fellow human mobile gamers? Look no further than Ketchapp Basketball. This is mobile basketball gaming distilled to its simplest – you have four game modes to choose from, and you can also compete against friends or other players from around the world. Ketchapp, as usual, doesn’t explain what those modes are, as it prefers to keep its game descriptions as no-frills as its games are.
This should be the game for you if you tend to shy away from anything too complicated, or games that eat up all your microSD and/or onboard storage. Since Ketchapp makes sure to make its titles as tricky to perfect as they are simple, we’ve put together a list of Ketchapp Basketball tips and tricks that could help you beat your high score, or any other (legit) high score you spot on the leaderboard.
1. Know The Basics Of The Game’s Different Modes
When playing in endless mode, you can take some time to perfect your shot and make sure it’s on point. But that changes when you’re playing in the time challenge mode – forget about taking your time and making the best shot possible, because it’ll be all about speed. When in endless mode, carefully swipe up to take the best possible shot, but when in time challenge, use multiple fingers and swipe up QUICKLY. While you may try short, quick swipes if you’re just starting out, you can try making them longer as you go on, as it tends to be easier to properly aim your shots that way.
2. Score As Much As You Can Before The Hoop Starts Moving
Remember the basketball game on Facebook Messenger? It would appear that Ketchapp has taken some pages from that playbook. The hoop will eventually start moving, so before it does that, you should try to score as many points as possible. It’s harder to aim shots while the hoop is moving, and that may require you to shoot the ball at an angle. It will be easier for you to shoot if the hoop is close to the corners, so you can shoot as normal while it’s there, only to return to angling your shots when it moves to the other side.
3. Redeem Your Free Stars
The game will reward you with some free stars from time to time, and you can set up your notifications so that the game will inform you whenever the stars are ready to redeem – stars are the game’s form of currency. You can also time-lapse – setting the time on your device forward by a few hours – to get those stars faster. Additionally, you can watch ad videos after completing a level, even if these videos don’t always pop up in the game.
4. What Can You Get With Your Stars?
You can spin for a new ball once you’ve got at least a hundred stars to spend. You will occasionally win a rare ball, but on most occasions, you’ll get a common one. Still, it won’t matter at the end of the day, as the game will play the same way regardless of what type/design of ball you’re using.
