Basketball World is a sports game developed for Windows PCs. It lets you choose between 2 game modes, provides you with detailed gameplay instructions, and lets you play in fullscreen or windowed mode.

The first window you see after launching the game on your PC is the Configuration screen. From there, you can select the preferred window resolution and graphics quality level. Once you close this screen, the main menu of the app will be revealed, and you will no longer have access to the Configuration panel. This means that you can alter the display settings only if you shut down and reopen the game.

The game can be played only by using your mouse cursor. So, unlike other basketball games, you can't move your players by using your keyboard keys, an aspect which might bother many users.

This app is probably the worst basketball simulator I tested on my Windows PC. Besides the fact that it's very difficult to control the players and score points, the graphics and animations of this game are awful. Another thing that bothers me is that a new page opens in my default web browser every time I shut down the game.

With that being said, I don't think it's worth downloading and installing this game on your computer. Even though it comes without a price, it brings you too many flaws which make installing a waste of your time.
