The better you get, the better your salary gets. --- Getting In The Action Magic Johnson's Fast Break is fast-paced basketball for up to four players. If you purchase the optional NES Satellite(tm), four controllers can be used at once, allowing up to four players to play simultaneously. Without this interface, you can have only one or two player games. Note: In one-player games, press the Select Button to choose the number of players and skill level. PRESS THE START BUTTON TO BEGIN. If the Start Button is not pressed in the allowed time, the complter will begin Auto-Play. To return to the Title Scren during this demonstration game, press any of the controller buttons. Each game consists of four quarters. At the end of a quarter, the referee will sound his whistle and play will stop. Statistics are shown for both teams between quarters. Pressing either of the fire buttons will begin the next quarter. If the score is tied at the final buzzer, additional quarters will be played until a winner is determined. At the start of each quarter, a jumpball is played to decide which team gains initial possession of the ball. The referee throws the ball into the air, and each team jumps and tries to knock the ball to a teammate. On offense, go for 2 or 3 pointers, depending on your distance when you shoot a ball. On defense, guard your basket from the other team and even try to steal the ball. Don't forget to go for the rebound. Once the offense has entered their opponents half of the court, they are not permitted to carry or pass the ball back across the center line. If they do, a back court violation occurs and the ball is given to their opponent for an in- bound. Only 5 team fouls are permitted each quarter. Each additional foul awards 2 free throws to the offended side. If the fouling team has under 5 at the time of the foul, then an inbound is awarded to the other team. Exceptions are a) the player is fouled while shooting and the shot is good - 1 free throw awarded. b) the defense fouls a player during an inbound - 2 free throws awarded. One point is awarded for each successful free throw. If the ball does not go in after the last free throw, the ball becomes live. Both teams may grab the rebound. If it does go in, the other team takes possession. --- Using The Control Unit Control Pad Moves your player around the court Select Button Chooses number of players and skill level in a one-player game.

During a JUMP BALL, press the A or B button to jump for the ball. During an INBOUND, press the A or B button to pass the ball to a teammate. During a REBOUND, press the A button to jump for the ball, press the B button to swap control to a teammate. NOTE: Fast Break MUST be played with the Fire Button Auto-Repeat turned off (if your controller has this feature). --- One-Player Games In a one-player game, the computer controls the red team, playing left to right. You are the blue team, playing right to left and using control unit 1. Your control unit can move only one player at a time, so an arrow will appear above the man you are controlling. At the start of the game, you will select the skill level of the computer team. There are five levels to choose from, ranging from "Rookie" to "Professional." Begin your basketball career on the "Rookie" level, then advance to harder and harder levels as you improve. Two-Player Games In a two-player game, control unit 1 operates the blue team, playing from right to left. Control unit 2 operates the red team, playing from left to right. Because each control unit can move only one player at a time, an arrow will appear above the man being controlled by each player. Four-Player Games In a four-player game, control units 1 and 2 operate the blue team, playing from right to left. Control unit 1 operates the arrowed blue player. Control units 3 and 4 operate the red team, playing from left to right. Control unit 3 operates the arrowed red player. --- The Scoreboard [left to right...] Team fouls in quarter (5 permitted) Score - player 1 Shot clock (24 seconds permitted) Quarter Time left in quarter Score - player 2 --- Salaries At the start of the game, each team is given a salary. If they win the game, salary will be raised. At the end of the game, salaries are calculated for each team according to their performance. Only the winner is awarded a bonus plus additional money calculated from the team's statistics. In a one-player game, the bonus awarded after beating the computer is proportional to the skill level selected for the computer. Beating the "Professional" team will bring greater rewards than beating the "Rookie" team. In two and four-player games, the bonuses are equivalent to beating an "Expert" team. A record of high salaries is kept each game session. If a player equals or beats and of the salaries, the player will be asked to enter his or her initials. This list will be kept until the console is powered down. --- Hot Tips! * Want to score? Get as close to the net as possible before you shoot. * Want to steal the ball?
