Jordan vs Bird is correct!

It comes from the slam dunk selection screen:

SS gets the first point!

I knew it looked familiar but I couldn't place it. The second clue sealed the deal.  B)

Thanks Rick! I was hoping you all would like it. I've seen similar games played on facebook and I myself played similar games on the Retro League forums and wanted to bring something similar with my own little spin here.

 

I plan to post another screenshot tomorrow!

My guess is most retro gamers have seen this before.

It's a pretty well known game.

Now that Starbuck66 said After Burner 2, I remember seeing something that looked like that on the title screen. I've played it before, but it's been awhile.  I'm gonna go with that.

This game was one of the first Genesis games I played, and it's still a top 3 title for me on the system. Can't wait to see your review of it!

I have the 3D version on my 3DS as well; it's been worth every penny :-)
