New Street Sport Game From Epyx

Epyx has announced plans to release Street Sports Baseball, a unique new baseball game for the Commodore 64, Apple II series, and IBM PC and compatibles.

In keeping with the winner-take-all, neighborhood pick-up game approach of the Street Sports line, the game will feature the 52nd Street Gang—hitters, fielders, and pitchers from which players can choose their team. The rules of the game are the same as those of big-league baseball, but the rules of the street provide a special challenge. Players must run and field around tree stumps and bushes, and contend with trash can lids, spare tires, or flattened cardboard boxes. After you select the members of your team, you assign positions and decide on a batting order. Then you control the pitches, time the swings, and regulate the field action. You can play against a friend or the computer using a split-view screen with perspectives from above and close up, so you can keep an eye on the whole field as well as a specific playing area.

The price of Street Sports Baseball was unavailable at press time.
