In Basketball Dare, you have to get the ball into the basket. This might seem like an easy task, but there are obstacles in your way, like metal boxes and triangles. Depending on where the basket, boxes, and triangles are the ball is placed on either the left or right side of the screen. To shoot the ball, you hold the left mouse button and then aim with the mouse. There is an arrow that extends on the ball; when you are satisfied with the power on the arrow, you release the left mouse button. There is a good variety of obstacles in this game, and each level offers it's own strategy. In one level, you will just have a metal box in front of the basket, and in another level, you will have two metal triangles in front of the basket. I like that the levels get harder as you go through the game. In level thirteen, you have three metal platforms in front of the basket, so it is really challenging to get the ball in the basket. In some levels, the ball might just keep bouncing on the bottom of the screen. To fix this, you just click on the reset button. In some of the levels, you could use the obstacles to your advantage; you could use the metal boxes to bounce the ball off of to get it in the basket. Basketball Dare is a nice basketball strategy game, and the best part about the game is trying to figure out how to get the ball into the basket in one shot.
