Each team has its strengths and weaknesses, though no single group is significantly better than any other. After selecting your team, your five players will take the court. The player who scores the most baskets at the end of the game is declared the winner.Everything you love about basketball is present in this game. There is no referee on the court, but players who break the rules will still receive a foul. Free throws are awarded to the opposing group when a foul occurs. Each player also has a hidden sweet spot on the court. From this position, your player is likely to get the ball in the hoop. Double Dribble for the NES offers some cool customization options. For example, gamers can set how long they want each quarter to last. There are four possible choices when selecting the time for the quarter length. Entire games can be over in a matter of minutes, or they can stretch out to almost half an hour. Likewise, there are three difficulty levels for the single-player mode. Set the difficulty on the easiest mode if you want to sink all your shots. Set it on the hardest one if you want a challenge akin to some of the toughest Nintendo games.The graphics in Double Dribble for the NES are colorful and vibrant.

When your athlete dunks on an opposing athlete, a short video plays showcasing your spectacular jump. Double Dribble was also one of the first Nintendo games to use digitized speech.
