Trying to figure out how to play GBA Two on Two Basketball hasn't been very fruitful, not really knowing how to play basketball in the first place not helping either. The game can be played from either joystick or keyboard (with keypad to be used for direction and option (!) used as the fire button) or both devices for a 2 player match. A 2 player game can be played either with team-mates or head to head. All the options are easily selectable from menus.

Although I can't play the game, I personally think it looks nice. There's something about a lacquered wooden court on a computer screen I find aesthetically pleasing. The player sprites are smooth and well animated. The title screen is OK, and plays some funky tunes. The sound during game play isn't too bad either.
