During simple competitions, all you'll have to do is swipe your finger over your screen to shoot at the basket. Try to score as much as you can in a limited amount of time. For one to one games, you'll have to fake left and right tricking your rival into thinking you are going one way, but then shuffle the other way to find the right opportunity to shoot at the basket. On the other hand, when you are the one who is defending, you'll have to try to steal the ball and keep your opponent from shooting.
When you're playing and winning competitions, you'll raise from one level to the next gaining new improvements for your character. In fact, you'll be able to personalize how your basketball player looks, changing their hairstyle, skin color, jersey type, as well as tons of other accessories anyway you want.
