David Robinson's Supreme Court, called David Robinson Basketball (デビッド・ロビンソン バスケットボール) in Japan, is a 1992 basketball game for the Sega Mega Drive by Sega.

A Sega Game Gear version was in development, but was cancelled for unknown reasons. A prototype has since been found.

Gameplay

David Robinson's Supreme Court is a basketball game played from an isometric perspective, in which the player can pick one of four American teams and take on the other three. Use the D-pad to move, A to pass the ball and B to shoot.

The game uses a "screen flipping" mechanism, meaning if the ball travels past the half-way line, there is an 180-degree flip in perspective to show the other side of the court. This means hoops are always drawn in the top left or top right of the screen, and you can never see the whole court at once. Prior to its release all Mega Drive basketball games had been played from a horizontal perspective (and many would continue to do so).

Teams

Only four teams exist in David Robinson's Supreme Court, and as the game lacks a license from the National Basketball Association, teams are referred to just by city, and are comprised of fictional players.

L.A.
Plays in yellow.
New York
Plays in green.
Chicago
Plays in purple.
Detroit
Plays in red.
