Game on, folks! The tricky part to start off with is getting your dribble, pass and shoot buttons straight. Once you get that down, you're good to go. It seems like each player on your team has his own strengths and weaknesses. One may run faster than others, one may jump higher, one may pass faster, etc. Scoring baskets adds time to the clock. Blocked shots, blocked passes, etc. deduct time, so watch the clock. I was never much into sporting games, but I've always loved this one. Hopefully you all will, too! :)

304,180 + 49 free throws.


It's a pretty quirky game this one, I've played it before but only on much harder settings. The charging calls can be bullshit though, the refs going to have a talking to in the parking lot after the game...

Whats the trick to making the free throws in the game? and the bonus free throw shooting? I`m new to the M.A.M.E scene! I just got my M.A.M.E cabinet a short while ago.


For the bonus, hit the throw button as fast as possible, don't worry about the position of the moving rectangle.


For the penality shot, you have to time your shot.


Hold down the button when the moving rectangle just passes the rim, release it when the rectancle is just above the rim. You have to be between 40 and 50 degrees to get it. Of course you will get 1 point for each successful try but you will also have 3 extra seconds and if you get it at 45 degrees you will receive 5 extra seconds.


Note: The speed of the moving rectangle is increasing at every level. So you have to adjust yourself.


I hope the image below will help you.

Thanks for sharing your INP.

For the bonus challenge, you should hit the throw button as fast as possible.

You should get at lease 30 this way.

I errased my INP by mistake :(


I just notice that, in some cases (maybe starting at the UNI level), when you make a pass, the player that received the pass move a lot faster.


If I beat my score, I will make a video of my game.

I have an INP of my 564K game, if somebody would like to see it please let me know.

Thanks for the tip. :)

The INP i posted, i was doing good until i played the 3rd team.

Alot of my passes were blocked, but i almost made 2 or 3 baskets.

Not a bad game I guess, but I think it's just as much (if not more) a puzzle game than it is a basketball game.


I find the fouls and the passing pretty frustrating. I can't count the number of times I've had a certain guy wide open in a sweet spot, I hit the pass button, and the stupid thing tries to pass to a different guy that has an opponent right in the way, so I lose the ball. I realize it passes to the guy that is glowing, but I'm having a hard time getting used to that.
