New to the Pico-8, which is already starting to feel like home.
When I was a kid, I remember playing these awful Game Gear sports games we got at a garage sale. This is my take: working your way up through the local semi-pro ladder, you can get a chance to unseat the seemingly-invincible Jeremy Mondo (I hear he's got a sponsor now!).
No particular advantage to choosing any of the characters, and some of the opponents you face early on are pretty bad - the characters are inspired by folks I've played (much less fun) games of racquetball with back in my hometown.
It actually wouldn't be too hard to realize, either. I'd considered giving each playable character different attributes (reach, speed, max power, etc.) and then doing two-player mode, but I figured I'd leave it for a sequel, Street Fighter style.
