Codex Gamicus

Bulls versus Blazers and the NBA Playoffs is a 1992 video game that was available for the Super NES and later in 1993 Sega Mega Drive/Genesis, game consoles. The game was a sequel to the Bulls vs. Lakers video game.

Play mode[]

The game could be played in various ways: players could play against each other, or against the computer. Games against the computer were divided into two levels, "exhibition" or "playoffs". Players could pick from one of the 16 teams that had gone to the playoffs in the NBA the year before the game was released. Games could be configured for 2, 5, 8 or 12 minute quarters.


  • It was the first EA basketball game to feature self in-game advertisements of the company's logo "EA Sports".
  • It was the first time custom fiction teams could be made. You could create fantasy matchups such as Drexler vs. Drexler. Or create an entire team roster duplicating the same player 12 times.
