About This Game

BasketBelle is an experimental 2D basketball-based platformer. Each Chapter of the game uses the mechanics and idea of basketball in a different way. At one point you might be dribbling inside the intestines of a purple blob creature. At others, you're likely to be dunking above the clouds in front of the Parisian moon.

A dynamic soundtrack and unique cardboard visuals help tell the story of a sister who must be saved through the power of basketball.

Key Features

  • Dunk, dribble, and crossover through 8 Chapters spanning throughout the impromptu courts of Paris
  • Each Chapter takes the mechanics of basketball and applies them in different ways. Some chapters are more action, some are more puzzle. And then there are the strange chapters.
  • Music is tied directly to the gameplay, though it's all passively controlled. For example, every time you dribble, you hear a bass hit. Shoot the ball, and the percussion stops.
  • Visuals in the game are a unique mix of cardboard and color, every scene popping off the screen.
