Are you surrounded with boring friends on Facebook?Don’t worry,the latest update to its iOS messenger and android messenger brings you a hidden basketball game.In change log Facebook mentioned “Shoot Some Hoops: Want to see what’s hiding behind the basketball emoji in Messenger? Just send one and tap to find out!”.
This is an arcade-style basketball game, where you need to flick a basketball towards a hoop.No matter you basket or fail, fun emojis and Facebook stickers cheer you on.
Play hidden basketball in Facebook messenger:
Keep in mind that you have the latest version of Facebook messanger to play the game.To unlock the hoop shooting game, open a Messenger conversation and send a basketball emoji to your friend. Once the message is sent, tap on the emoji and you will be transported away from your conversation to a wonderful world where you can’t find any baby photos, relationship drama, or Candy Crush invites rather than a white screen, a basketball, and a hoop. In the screenshot above, I mention double-tapping the ball to get it to work. The first few times I tried opening the game, I had to double-tap. Subsequent tries worked with a single tap.
Slide your finger or thumb on the screen To shoot. A point is scored for every consecutive basket that you net and the scores are shared in your chat with a friend or group.The target begins to move after a score of 10. It moves faster after 20 and keeps you hooked on the game for a considerable time.
Enjoy your game and March Madness as well.
