Description

Taking basketball out of poshly-decorated arenas with hotdog sellers, cheerleaders and pre-game entertainments, Epyx presented basketball played as it is by kids all over America. Four different courts are provided - the schoolyard, the alleyway, the parking lot and the backyard. Each of these has its own hazards to play around, such as oil slicks and potholes. The standard basketball dunks, passes and steals are on offer. An opposition player drilling the ball into you sees you gain possession.

One or two players can join in, choosing their team of 3 from the 10 kids you are offered, each with different abilities. There are 3 computer difficulty levels.

Trivia

Think all that stuff on the screen (curb, grass, holes, trash cans, etc.) are there for decoration? Hardly! Dribbling on these surfaces can cause your player to lose control of the ball!

Not every court has well-defined out of bounds areas. Just like in real life pickup games, the rules aren't set in stone. :) For example, on the city court, if the ball hits to doors or trash cans, it's not out! It'll bounce back onto the court and any player can pick it up.
