Flashes of Brilliance: Basketball

You, a basketball, two minutes, and any number of strangers. The gameplay of Basketball is fairly well summarised in by the above screenshot: really, it’s more about your ability to work out the parabolas than anything else.

Online contests begin every 2 minutes and 45 seconds, and last for 2 minutes. While you wait to join a round, you can engage in some single-player practice. The particularly compelling point of the online play is that after each shot, your ranking is compared to the competition on a histogram. At the end of the round, a leaderboard is displayed, leaving the winners to bask in glory and represent their nation (as the game automatically shows your country’s flag). No account is necessary, and age, gender, and name entry is optional.
