The point of view is horizontal for the most part. Occasionally, you will get a close-up action scene on plays such as slam dunks and free throws. There are also two different play modes, "Tournament" and "One Game." You can play by yourself, against a friend, or with a friend against the computer.

Playground basketball goes big time with Roundball: 2-on-2 Challenge. Just imagine half-court, two-on-two (or one-on-one) basketball in an arena setting, complete with a scoreboard and an excited crowd. Your view of the playing area is all encompassing from the half-court line at the bottom of the screen to the basket itself as you near the top. Choose from the players available to customize your own team as you pass, block, steal, dunk, and shoot three-pointers on your way to victory.

They include: The Photons, the Comets, the Flames, the Vikings, the Arrows, the Tomahawks, the Rollers, the Stingrays, the Langers (possibly meant to be Rangers), the Rings, the Waves, the Wizards, the Unicorns, the Tridents, the Sprinters, the Serpents.

Control either Julius Erving or Larry Bird in front of a single basket, in a game of one on one. The user can select to play either to a certain score or for a certain amount of time. When on offense, the player can rotate to keep away from his rival, take a shot from a distance or move in to the basket for special up-close slam-dunks. When on defense, you can try to take your rival's ball or jump up to block a shot. Particularly good set-ups get a slow-motion replay. You can even smash the glass on the backboard, which will send an irate janitor onto the court to clean up the mess.
