The NBA metaverse continues to roll with the release of NBA All-World. It is a mobile game from Niantic, the creator of the popular Pokemon GO game.
It encourages people to roam their neighborhood to challenge nearby NBA stars. Win to recruit them into your team, then compete against fellow players to climb the leaderboards.
Also, people can encounter Drop Zones outdoors with accessories for their players, such as jerseys, balls, and shoes.
How do you play NBA All-World?
You can download the game for free on Android and iOS. Then you create an account and an avatar.
Make sure your drip is on point by choosing the right look for your character. Fortunately, the game has enough starting options; you will find more later.
NBA All-World borrows numerous features from Like Pokemon GO. For example, it provides a map of your area with nearby players and goodies.
Your avatar represents you on the map and is oriented to the orientation of your phone. Instead of catching digital pets, challenge NBA players in one-on-one matches.
You could play three-point shootouts and other timing-based mini-games. The first involves tapping a basketball icon when a slider reaches a specific point to score points.
In one of the other games, your character drives to the ring while your opponent tries to block you. You have buttons that help you dodge the opponent and do a layup.
Win matches to recruit players for your team. Your team will level up and improve their stats as you gain more W’s (victories).
Eventually you can rise through the ranks and compete in your local leaderboard. Be number 1 and fellow players will see your name in that area.
It is a skill-based game, but your performance depends on two resources: food and drink. You will have a harder time scoring points if your character is hungry or thirsty.
You can satisfy your hunger by going to nearby restaurants. You can also quench your thirst by going to local convenience stores.
Gamers may also encounter Drop Zones as they wander through their neighborhood. These areas contain new items such as jerseys, shoes, and balls.
You can also purchase these items from fitness brands such as Nike and Adidas. In fact, the online selection reflects their real-life merchandise.
Gaming company Niantic is putting a unique spin on Pokemon GO with NBA All-World. The mobile game is a new way for basketball players to discover their love for the sport.
The game is free to download and install, but has microtransactions. For example, you can pay to increase the attack and defense stats.
