In it, you will score regular 3-pointers and 2-pointers, or buzzer beaters, steal the ball from your opponent, choose between 1, 2, 3 or 4 quarters with a duration of 30, 60 or 90 seconds each, and play with as many as 30 teams. You can challenge your friends to basketball battles on a shared screen, or play against the computer.
This is a new arcade hoops game with next-gen graphics and easy to use controls that lets you shoot, flick, toss or swipe with one finger and score to prove that you’re the king of the court.

There are thousands of 3D pro, retro and street customization combos with sport gear and uniforms like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and other pro NBA superstars. The game lets you play online as well, testing your skills against other real, live opponents across multiple platforms. It also features highly accurate ball physics and bounce, along with real-time cloth simulation.
