The full-court action between the Arch Rivals is really hot tonight. Here's Mohawk taking it to the hoop...POW! He just got nailed in the alley with a right cross! FOUL! FOUL! FOUL!


That's right. No Fouls. This is basketball where breaking the rules is part of the rules! If you can't block a shot - knock your opponent's block off. If you can't steal the ball - steal his shorts! But don't think these tactics are enough to win. Arch Rivals still requires real B-ball skills like passing, shooting, ball handling, slam dunks, and 3 point shots.

Based on the arcade smash hit, Arch Rivals brings all of its hard-hitting, "in your face" action into your home. Whether you're going for a fast break, doding food on the court, or crashing the boards 'till they shatter, Arch Rivals isn't just basketball...it's a basketbrawl!

  • Based on the Bally/Midway Arcade "smash hit" from Miday/Manufacturing Company
  • A full-court basketbrawl
  • 1 and 2 player head-to-head action
