International Basketball
Copyright/Publisher: Commodore/Andrew Spencer,
Release Year: 1985, Genre: Basketball, Number Of Players: 1 or 2

The original Commodore classic is still the best in the basket (apart from soggy chips; of course!). The emphasis is on furious end-to-end action on the horizontally scrolling court.

Player control is easy with automatic ball-bouncing when dribbling. Holding down fire determines the length of throw when passing to team-mates. Stealing the ball is accomplished by running up to the ball-carrier, then stepping left/right - but go charging in too last and a foul is called.

Going for the basket is a bit tricky at first: when you jump up you can spin in the air to aim, but you have to get the length of throw just right to score. Shots can be blocked, and even caught in mid air, by a jumping defender.

Unsurprisingly two-player games are fast and fun, but there's also a nifty computer opponent - very though to beat on the highest of nine skill levels.
