Review of 'World Series Basketball'

Rating:5 User: The Dean of Games

1985 Imagine Software (UK)

The first proper basketball simulator, and still one of the best ever on the ZX.
A bit slow at times, but still very playable and challenging, the graphics are nicely drawn too!
The game has a few bugs, the worst of all is the buffer overflow bug that happens when the ball is thrown outside the court within a specific place and continues on the other side, the game isn't interrupted but its impossible to continue, because the ball keeps coming from the margins of the court into the playing area and again moving outside of the screen until the game simply crashes.
Put this aside and you end up with a great sports game.
