Basketbrawl is a video game released for the Atari 7800 in 1990 and the Atari Lynx in 1992. It is a sports simulation while also a beat-em up at the same time. The object of the game is to outscore the player's opponent either by scoring more points at basketball or knocking them out cold.

Etymology[edit]

The name is a portmanteau of the words basketball and brawl. Brawl sounds similar to ball and is spelled similarly, allowing for an easy substitution.
