Description from the packaging.

Six seconds left. Down by two. You steal the ball and pass it to your teammate.
You both race down the court.
He flips you a quick, behind-the-back pass.
The defense closes in.
You dribble around your man, turn, shoot and …
A perfect baseline jumper ties the game and forces it into overtime. But you couldn't have done it without teamwork.

This is GBA Championship Basketball: Two-On-Two, the most realistic basketball game ever to hit the computer courts. It gives you real choices. Real team involvement. Real basketball action.

  • Chalkboard screens let you establish your playing skills and pick your teammate. Teammates are patterned after real pros.
  • Choose from hooks, jump shots, passes, slam dunks, tip-ins and much more.
  • Call your offensive play while your opponent sets his defense.
  • The sport page keeps track of game results and league standings.

Here is the computer basketball game that begins where the others leave off. Because this game relies on teamwork.

Draft your teammates from a list of ten players whose styles are patterned after real professional superstars.

Practice with games like Around the World and Horse, or go one-on-one with a friend. Get your team in shape for league play. And go all the way to the GBA Championship game.

You play GBA Basketball on a full court. And when it comes to shooting, you have a full range of choices. Like hooks, tip-ins, jump shots- even dunks.

After each game, you can read the sports page of the Gamestar Gazette to check box scores and division standing.

One look at the screen tells you that this simulation has the most realistic graphics created for computer basketball. Not to mention realistic sound effects and on-court action that feels like the real thing.

GBA Basketball gives you all these ways to compete:

  • One player vs the computer.
  • Two players vs the computer.
  • Two players, two-team competition.
  • Practice sessions.
  • 23-Team league competition.

GBA Basketball. It's the one that lets you really show your stuff.

Game after game. Season after season.

Created by Troy Lyndon, Scott Orr, John Cutter and Mark Madland.
