The Slam Dunk Mobile Basketball Game Just Released And You can Play It on PC With BlueStacks
First, Basketrio, and now Slam Dunk. What a fine day to be a sports games fan as two awesome new titles just released on the market. This time around, however, Slam Dunk is based on the popular manga and anime series of the same name, and gives players the unique opportunity to both immerse themselves in the engaging storyline, as well as to enjoy a terrific mobile basketball game with real-time action and live PvP.
Slam Dunk, as many may know, was a popular show in the ‘90s centered around a high school basketball team as they trained and played, and turned the relatively unknown Shohoku High team into a powerful contender for the Inter Highs. The game features a retelling of these same events, allowing players to relive them by viewing actual clips of the anime interlinked with the gameplay, as well as participate in all sorts of matches.
The gameplay itself is very involved, featuring basketball matches in real-time where players can dribble, pass, shoot, and execute special and flashy moves to dunk on the opponent. The matches themselves are quite short and no more than a couple of minutes long, but the action is intense as you’ll be running and styling on your opponents as much as possible before taking the win when the timer runs out.
Slam Dunk is centered heavily on online PvP as matches feature real-time action against live players. Unlike other sports titles based on popular anime shows, this one doesn’t have any strategic pauses or other in-game RPG elements to stop the fun. Instead, everything plays out live, with matches often being very intense and chaotic. In this sense, there’s a good chance that you’ll be struggling your first few matches if you’re new. However, before long, you’ll be shooting 3-pointers along with the best of them.
