Conversion of Magic Johnson's Fastbreak Basketball, a well known coin-op, and published first for 16 bit systems and C64. After that, Dro Soft (the company which re-released the games of Melbourne House in Spain) required New Frontier to convert the game to the most popular 8 bits systems in Spain: Spectrum, Amstrad CPC and MSX.
This is the first card of a foreign game with some versions made here in Spain (they will come some others), by New Frontier this time. Seeing what they have done with other conversions, we could have expected a great game, but sadly it isn't.
Graphics are bad and movements quite simple. Just the music is fine.
So, take a look if you have curiosity, but try other games to play a good basketball game.
Ranking de versiones
Las tres versiones son muy similares. La conversión directa de MSX empobrece aún más los gráficos de Spectrum, mientras que la de Amstrad cuenta con jugadores coloreados, a cambio de perder vistosidad en su conjunto.
