Magic Johnson’s Fast Break 076/365

Have you been watching that show Winning Time: The Rise of The Lakers Dynasty? It’s wonderful. The filming styles they use, John C. Reilly’s style and the kid who plays Magic is…O right. Magic Johnson’s Fast Break came out this month in 1990.

“Magic Johnson’s Fast Break is fast-paced two-on-two action rather than the usual five-on-five contest. On screen you get a full-court, horizontally-scrolling gameplay. A referee monitors the action and calls the fouls if the gameplay gets too rough, and a crowd cheers you on.

Your team starts each game at a certain salary level. Your goal is to beat the opposition to earn a larger salary. Keep winning and you might etch your name onto the Big Earners Screen. Choose from five skill levels – Rookie to Professional. Each level provides quicker gameplay, tougher defense, and bigger bucks if you win.

Each game lasts four three-minute, real-life quarters. In between quarters, you can review stats such as field goal percentage, three-pointers made, rebounds, and steals. If the score is tied at the final buzzer, you play additional quarters until someone wins.

You control one player at a time. An arrow appears on-screen above the head of the player you’re running. Just hit B to switch players. You can play against the computer or up to three friends.”
