Sports games have been a stable of the online gaming space for decades, and we've carefully curated the best of the best at Coolmath Games over the years. There are online games for every sport, like Soccer, Golf, Darts, or even Dirtbiking games. In this post, we'll focus on highlighting the most fun and engaging basketball games.
Are all of the Coolmath basketball games the same?
The basketball games on our site have a surprising amount of variety. While all of them can be considered sports games, of course, many of them can also fall under the logic games category. These games aren’t just players dribbling up and down the court trying to score, they are creative puzzle games that incorporate basketball into them in order to enhance the gameplay.
With that being said, let’s take a look at 4 of our favorite basketball video games that we have at Coolmath Games.
Slam Dunk Brush
Slam Dunk Brush is a fun and reaction-based game. In Slam Dunk Brush, players must guide the basketball to the hoop by drawing lines that slope towards the hoop. However, the basketball will often be shot up into the air at the start of the round, and players must start drawing their path to the basket before the ball comes back down.
Slam Dunk Brush is a lot like the game Sugar, Sugar. It is all about creating a smart and efficient path towards your desired destination. A tip - avoid the bombs in the way of the basket at all costs. If you run into these, it’s game over for you and you’ll have to start all over again from level 1.
Slam Dunk Brush is the perfect game for mobile, as well as desktop. On mobile, players can just swipe with their finger to draw their guiding lines. On desktop, they can just click and drag with their mouse to draw a line.
Basketball Master 2
Think you have a good shot? Well, put it to the test in Basketball Master 2, the ultimate shooting challenge. However, you won’t just have to deal with normal defenders like in regular basketball. In this basketball video game, players will have to shoot either around or through wood and ice blocks if they hope to make the shot. Do you have what it takes to get 3 stars in this fun yet challenging game?
Basketball - fun. Cannons - fun. Cannons and basketball combined - an awesome basketball puzzle game that will push your problem-solving skills to the limit.
Cannon Basketball is a puzzle-based game where players must aim for specific buttons and levers in order to access the basket. Unlike the games previously mentioned, Basketball Master 2 allows players to use unlimited basketballs to get through the level. While the extra attempts are helpful, the puzzles are still very complicated to solve.
An important piece of advice: players must click farther away from the cannon if they want to shoot the ball harder. This will be important early on, as there are some shots that you will have to shoot almost all the way across the map for. If you’re having trouble making it the entire way, just try clicking further away and you’ll likely get it in no time.
Basket and Ball
Basket and Ball is a platformer basketball video game. The objective is for you, playing as Ball, to traverse through the map and make it to Basket. The only problem is that there are traps and huge jumps standing in your way.
Ball does have one thing going for him though - he can jump extremely high using the spacebar. If you jump up and down several times, you can build your power and get an extremely high jump, which will definitely come in handy for the harder levels.
Once you find your way to the end and jump into the basket, the level is over and you move on to the next one.
