Flappy Dunk is a classic endless basketball shot-making game for the iOS and Android platforms where your goal is to shoot as many baskets as possible in a row.
You can blast through endless levels for as high of a score as you can possibly get, and you can complete challenges which get ever more difficult to beat.
There are a ton of balls to unlock in this game, including a mystery ball with a rather obscure hint.
Read on for a guide on how to unlock every ball in Flappy Dunk, plus a collection of tips and cheats!
Tips, Cheats, and Tricks
The balls are fairly easy to get through the hoops, as long as you know how to time them. The balls can bounce off of the rim or splash straight through as long as they make it. You’re going to have a much better chance of making the shot if you start the ball from a higher point. This stays true up until 75+ points, and even then it remains true with everything except for the super forward leaning ones.
That said, you should try to make the “swoop” shot as much as you can. If you make one, it’s worth two points. A second one in a row is worth 3 points. A third one in a row, and every one in a row after that, is worth 4 points. This will get you a high score a LOT more quickly.
The challenges will start off easy, but they’ll get VERY difficult as you go through them. Also, you can play them in literally any order that you want to, so you can play the hardest ones first if you have a death wish. You’ll see challenges like Mad Ball (super fast movement) or swishes only, which will make endless mode seem easy by comparison when you play them.
There are plenty of unlockable balls in this game. However, there is no currency in the game, so ALL of the balls have to be done by completing a specific action, such as completing a certain amount of challenges or earning a specific amount of points. There is one ball that can be earned by watching an ad video. Tap any locked ball to see what you have to do to get it.
One good thing about the challenges is that you can memorize your moves because the layout is the exact same on each one. If you are looking to win a ball from completing a certain number of challenges, start with the easiest ones and work your way up. Starting with the hardest ones is an exercise in futility.
