Dunk Shot is a tapping game in the Pocket7Games app, and it’s one of the app’s hidden gems. There may not be many players in the Dunk Shot area, but the game is fast-paced and a lot of fun. In essence, the game is very simple: tapping the screen gives your basketball a boost. Naturally, you’re supposed to score as many points as you can, but doing it the right way will help you beat your opponent and take the prize. You can play Dunk Shot for free or pick one of the many Dunk Shot cash games and become a tapping basketball pro. Games can be worth up to $50 per win, while some tournaments give you the chance to win up to $1,000 in cash.
How to play Dunk Shot with Pocket7Games
Dunk Shot is played in an empty basketball court with some graffiti in the background. A basketball rolls by, and when you tap the screen, it jumps up a little. Tapping a few times will get it higher. A basket appears on the left or right side at different heights, and the obvious goal of the game is to get the ball in the basket.
To make it more challenging, there’s a timer running. If the timer runs out, your taps no longer matter (but you can still score a point if the ball makes it through on its own). Each time you score a point, the timer resets. You get three balls, and if the timer runs out, one is taken away. The game ends after two minutes or when all balls are gone.
Scoring points without touching the orange rim of the basket ( a ‘swish’) gives you a bonus. Other bonuses come when you beat the buzzer (meaning you score as the timer runs out) or when you perform another trick shot. Getting three bonus shots in a row gives your ball a special effect.
Strategies to help you win real money with Dunk Shot
- Aim for combos
While it’s dangerous to chase bonuses in most games on the Pocket7Games app, Dunk Shot is different. After getting a feel for the ball, you can start aiming for combos. Not only do these combos help you score more points, but after three combos it also becomes a lot easier to handle the ball. Also, combining the combos quickly helps you increase your score rapidly.
- Learn every trick shot
You can’t always combine the trick shots as you please, but knowing about them will help you make them. Making a high throw and a swish at once will help you a great deal in understanding what it takes to score each trick shot. Use the practice mode (entry of 10 tickets) to get your trick shots in without having to worry about who wins the game.
- Let it bounce
Your first instinct may be to always tap the screen. Sometimes, however, it’s best to let the ball bounce to get you in a better position. Since scoring points with a bounce trick shot gives you the highest base points (6), it also helps you know when you try to score with these trick shots.
- End on a high note
Beating the buzzer doesn’t just give you a combo, it also gives you a chance to keep going. When you’re about to run out of time, it’s time for an old-fashioned big throw towards the basket. If you make that one, you might just combine two trick shots: high throw and buzzer beater.
