Thanks to Piet Jonas for this cool applet.
How to play
The goal of this game is to shoot the ball into the basket. To shoot, left-click inside the ball and drag the mouse. You will see a line from the middle of the ball to the mouse pointer. When you let the mouse button go, the ball will start moving in the direction of the line. The length of the line indicates the starting velocity of the ball. The ball bounces back from the left, the right and the bottom wall and from the ring of the basket. There is no ceiling. When you shoot the ball into the basket, the ball stays there. Click somewhere inside the applet to proceed. To start over, refresh the web page.
Cheating: You can move the ball by right clicking it and dragging the mouse. However, dragging the ball into the basket is not allowed.
Sound: Clicking the speaker icon toggles the sound on and off.
