the keyboard arrows or the mouse to move the players on the field. The game has both the Single and Two-player
modes, which provides the option of playing against a friend or the computer. It is also possible to redefine
the keyboard. Owing to its detailed basketball simulator, Golden Basket is undoubtedly one of the superior
Basketball games of the time. Its superior graphics enhance the experience by showing the large and detailed
physique of the athletes. The referee respects all the rules of the international basketball federation to the
