In Three Point Basketball, players try to shoot hoops from the three point line on a basketball court. Using the mouse, the player can adjust the angle and power of the shot which happens in a 2D display. With the final ball out of five worth extra points, a perfect score is 30. There is a hotseat mode for up to four players, a tournament mode, and a practice mode. The computer opponents have names that are close but not quite identical to real-world basketball stars.
