Codex Gamicus

Double Dribble: The Playoff Edition is a basketball video game by Konami that's a direct sequel to the original arcade version in 1986 and the NES version in 1987. It was released for the Sega Genesis.


With the help of Sega's Team Player Adaptor peripheral, up to 8 different players can play the game. 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-7. Passwords are given during the semi-final round.


Instead of four teams like the original, players can choose to be one of 16 teams.
