Basketball Simulation Game

Electronic Arts has introduced One-on-One, a basketball simulation game that pits Boston Celtics star Larry Bird against Julius (Dr. J) Erving of the Philadelphia 76ers.

It is available on disk for the Apple II, II+, and IIe, and will be available this year for the Atari and Commodore 64 computers.

Statistical tables reflecting the players' strengths all over the court have been built into the game. The two players also advised the game creators on their individual strategies and maneuvers. Among the features are a 24-second-shot clock, a game clock, and a scoreboard that shatters when a slam dunk is made. The game also has hot and cold shooting functions, instant replays, and visible measures of player fatigue.

One-on-One has a suggested retail price of $40.
