An updated version of the original Double Dribble basketball game. Double Dribble: The Playoff Edition. The Playoff Edition expands dramatically on the original in a number of ways:
  • 16 teams of 12 (fictitious) players each
  • All players individually rated for various skills (Shooting %, Stamina, etc.)
  • Three play modes: Exhibition, Playoff (with password feature), and Multiplayer
  • 8-way multiplayer support with the Sega "Team Player" adapter


Double Dribble: The Playoff Edition Genesis The team logos are nothing like the NBA ones - the title is not licensed
Double Dribble: The Playoff Edition Genesis Playoff tree
Double Dribble: The Playoff Edition Genesis Slam dunk!
