Game Introduction

A standard basketball game where you view a scrolling court from the sidelines. The major difference in this game is that your players (on offense or defense) have super powers which allow them to make incredible shots, or incredible blocks. Your power reserve is diminished each time you use a special power. An interesting take on what otherwise would be yet another non-descript basketball game.
