Arch Rivals Description

Arch Rivals is a basketball arcade game created by Midway in 1989.

A full game consists of four quarters, with four minutes each. Each team has two players, and the objective of the game is to outscore the opponent until the final buzzer sounds.

If the game results in a tie after four quarters, a sudden death overtime period is added, in which case the next basket to go in will win the game for the team who scored it. The overtime period is one minute long. A player can call for his teammate to pass him the ball or to shoot it in this battle royale.

There are eight characters that the player can play as, each with a unique characteristic. They are:

Blade: A crowd pleaser
Hammer: Rebound king
Lewis: Top shooter
Mohawk: Tough & mean
Moose: A real champ
Reggie: All-American
Tyrone: Defensive giant
Vinnie: A great player
