Dude Perfect is a basketball-themed mobile arcade game aimed at younger players. The goal of the game is to attempt a series of increasingly bizarre basketball trick shots. Your character stands in place, you use a swipe mechanic to power up and release the shot. If you've played Angry Birds or Worms, the basic control will seem very familiar. As the game goes on, the levels get more and more complicated, with lots of obstacles and challenges.
Getting ready to take your shot
The basic mechanic of Dude Perfect is simple, the complexity comes in the level designs, which can require some ingenuity. Even an obvious solution might need several tries to complete successfully. You can also score extra points by bouncing off surfaces and knocking down targets within a level, allowing you to score more stars at the end. The result is a game that's simple to play with a good amount of replay value. The graphics are simple and cartoony, calculated to appeal to kids. One slightly frustrating aspect of gameplay is that a level ends only when the ball stops bouncing, which might be quite a while after you realise you've missed.
Simple fun for kids and adults
Dude Perfect is a simple arcade game with decent replay value and some genuinely challenging levels. Its in-app purchases can be intrusive, but the game at heart is a lot of fun.
