Double Dribble: The Playoff Edition Description

Double Dribble: The Playoff Edition, originally released in Japan as Hyper Dunk: The Playoff Edition and later released in Europe as HyperDunk, is a basketball video game developed and published by Konami for the Sega Genesis. It is the follow-up to the Double Dribble, originally released for the arcade in 1986 and various home computer systems and consoles.

With the help of Sega's Team Player Adaptor peripheral, up to eight different players can play the game. The three modes of play are Exhibition, Multi-Play, and Playoff. In Playoff Mode, one team is selected and placed in a tournament bracket. The first round is a best-of-5 series while the remaining rounds are best-of-seven. Passwords are given during the semi-final round.

Each player has a separate gauge that determines their energy level in addition to how effective that they are with their shots. Unlike the NBA or NCAA college basketball, the shot clock is shown in milliseconds in addition to seconds. Each player is shown with an identical height and weight to all the other players in-game.
