The objective of the game is to move Shadow left or right to an area where there is no defender or where a defender is in a unguarding position. When in this position, pressing the right button will score a point. After making 9 baskets, the level will advance, increasing the speed and the number of defenders. If the player's shot is blocked five times in a level, the game will end.


Help SHADOW™ make as many baskets as possible. Good luck!

  1. ON/OFF switch on the back side of the game
  2. Push any button to start game.
  3. Move left or right to where there is no defender or where there is a defender with his arms down. Then press the right button to make a basket.
  4. Make 9 baskets to score 18 points and advance a level.
  5. If a defender blocks your shot 5 times on a level, the game is over.
  6. As you advance a level the speed of the game increases and more defenders appear.
  7. After you complete all the levels you win the game. Shadow™ will flash and continue to make baskets while a winning sound plays. To play again, press any button.
