This is a small minigame, which is pretty much identical to the 3-Point challenge minigame in Kinect Sports: Season Two. The gameplay is simple. You are placed at various places on a Basketball Court. In each location, you have five shots. The fifth shot will give you a time bonus.

As with all Kinect Sports Gems, gaining levels is not based on gaining experience or burning calories. To gain levels, you must complete challenges.

For this achievement, you will need to obtain 26 stars by completing challenges. Most of the challenges will come naturally, but some do require a change in gameplay.

Game Tips

Stance/Technique - Your success in this game will rely entirely on your stance and technique. If you are consistent with a successful jump, you will succeed easily. Don't necessarily treat this as a normal basketball shot. Jump with both hands above your face. You may need to jump higher for the more distant shots. If you are off-balance, you will miss.

Take Your Time - Do not rush. If you rush, you will miss. It is essential that you maintain your composure, especially with the Bonus balls, as these are the shots that will extend your gameplay.


I won't include detailed information on challenges here. See the Slam-Dunk Superstar solution for further tips on the more difficult challenges. Other than that, should you need tips for any other specific challenges, please ask for them in the comments section. Alternatively, I have created a walkthrough on TrueAchievements, which has tips for all challenges in the game:

If you enter Settings, there is an option to 'Clear Missions'. DO NOT USE THIS OPTION! It will clear your challenges and ALL of your progress, so you will have to start all over, from Level 0.
