Background Story

The main idea for this game originates from an old basketball toy shooting machine which I was playing when I was a kid. The gameplay of that classic toy was based on pressing one of ten buttons to randomly shoot the ball through the basket net.

Now here is Spring Basketball Arrow Target, a simple, fun and addictive one-button sport game with a minimal flat graphics and realistic physics made by Box2d physics engine and libGDX game framework.
