Pound and shoot in Booth 101
Making its debut at next week’s Amusement Expo, Andamiro’s latest game is simple: pound and shoot. Basketball Pro incorporates a controller that is the size of an actual basketball. The air-powered, hemispherical interface allows players to control their shots. The game’s two-player stations support side-by-side competition or single play. Its two backboards, equipped with hoops and game clocks, move up and down as players propel mini balls at them with each pound. Players score three points for every basket; baskets in the final 10 seconds award six points. The new game measures 32” W. x 38” D. x 89” H. Its compact footprint is ideal for bars and other street locations, and it will stand out in the largest of FECs. See Basketball Pro in booth No. 101
