Swing Dunk comes to Steam Early Access
South Korean developer, Buckplay.inc, released a new basketball game, Swing Dunk, on Steam. Players can get a feel for the physics-based basketball game via Steam’s Early Access program.
Swing Dunk offers a new take on basketball games. In Swing Dunk, players compete on a hoverboard. With intuitive physics integrated, players must use the momentum from swinging the ball to do layups, shoot, and dunk. Unlike typical basketball games, Swing Dunk is all about giving freedom of how to play.

Thanks to the dash system of the hoverboard, players can maneuver through enemy defense and score a goal in limitless ways.
