Description from the packaging.

Basketball the way the pros play.

Arcade action brings the realism of the big time game home to you in this direct translation of the popular coin-op arcade game, "Magic Johnson's Fastbreak Basketball."


  • Arcade quality animated graphics and characters larger than any before seen in an IBM basketball game.
  • A full court scrolling screen.
  • Two-on-two play, with officials!
  • Full stats: See if you can achieve triple doubles like Magic!
  • A unique training sequence not even found in the arcade game.

Magic teaches you the shots. Make the "jump shot", the "alley oop", the "pick n roll", and of course Magic's famous fast break with a "slam dunk" finish. Dribble round your opponent to make the "lay up" that wins the game! Now you've gained the honor of playing the ultimate One on One... you against Magic Johnson.
