Description official descriptions

Double Dribble is a basketball action game for one or two players. You can select different time limits for games, select teams, and begin playing! Gameplay is entirely action, so no time needs to be spent customizing the teams or with statistics. You control each player on the team one at a time (the player with or about to receive the ball will be human controlled, with the computer taking over the other players temporarily.) Some versions feature a small amount of digitized sound effects, and close ups of slam dunks.

Version differences

The Japanese version of the NES port was released for the Famicom Disk System (a Japan-only add-on), and there's at least four differences from the US version:

  • There's no close up when you dunk the ball into the basket.
  • The US flag that shows up when the crowd goes into the stadium is replaced by three smaller Konami flags.
  • The sound the ball makes when a character bounces it on the floor is much less noticeable.
  • There's background music when you're out in the court playing the game!
