Another addition to the TV Sports series is coming to the Turbo. This time it's TV Sports Baseball and it features all the great multi-player action as found on the other two TV Sports titles (Football and Basketball). With controls very similar to the other games, TV Sports Baseball will be more of what you're used to. In this version, you can play solo, with a friend or the ultimate - four players simultaneously! You must battle with 9 other teams to become World Series Champion! You first start by choosing from three different fields to play on -either a grass field (amateur status), a minor league field, or the hardest - a domed major league field. The animation in the game is very smooth, and the characters react well to the controller functions resulting in good play control all around. The characters not only react to you, but also the characters around them. For example, if you make three strikes in a row, the character breaks his bat. If you are after a fly ball, your player will sometimes bump into other teammates on the field. It is realistic baseball with a touch of originality.

After picking your starting teams, your players take the field and all through the game an announcer will come on and update you on the score, and major highlights, like a stolen base, or a home run. He will also comment on scores, teams, player stats, and starting lineup for today's game.

Plug in the Turbotap and invite over everyone you know to play an all out baseball brawl to the finish. It's a new twist on baseball and if you're ready for real multi-player action you'll find it only on the Turbo. Coming to your game system early in 1992!

PLAY IN 3 LEAGUES...

As you get better, you can move up in league status. It's best to start off as amateurs and learn your ball playing techniques in the Green Field. Then, give the minors a try and step up to Maxwell Park. This park is the one that you are given when you begin a new series. Only when you have mastered the controls and can consistently beat the computer, should you think about major league status. When you're ready though, move into the dome - Comte Stadium.

Game Reviews

At long last, Turbo Technologies has inserted TV Sports Baseball into its lineup of excellent TV Sports games, and this cart was worth the wait! Hot graphics, excellent game play, and plenty of features make TV Sports Baseball a realistic, well-balanced, baseball game for the TurboGrafx-16.

Welcome to the "Show!"

TV Sports Baseball is a great four-player baseball game, which features two-player teams. In addition to the standard elements of baseball, the game has spontaneous player substitution, base stealing, and diving or jumping to make truly awesome catches.

Choose among eight ball clubs in a two division league, or use the division's All-Stars as your team. Analyze the key stats of each player, then take a sneak peek at the opposition. Then select from three different ballparks.

Play either an exhibition game or a 20-game schedule that leads into the play-offs and ultimately the league championship! A handy password feature enables you to save your current season with all your hard earned stats intact.

The game's controls feature a standard Pitcher/Batter screen with windows displaying the status of runners on all three bases. The game switches to the Field screen as soon as the ball is hit, and you're automatically in control of the player in the best position to field the ball. Pay special attention to the tiny Field Window radar screen, which displays the movements of the selected fielder and any base runners.

All graphic elements are well-rendered and take full advantage of the TurboGrafx-16's generous color palette. Ball players move smoothly and realistically, as does the baseball in play. Heads up! Foul balls spin right out of the TV at you!

The soundtrack is a repetitive, grating, electronic melody that can be mercifully switched off. However, crowd noises, sound effects, and the umpire's calls are all clear and sound authentic.

It's a Hit!

TV Sports Baseball is an extremely challenging one-player game and an excellent multi-player game. Its sharp graphics, loads of features, and smooth game play guarantee T urboGrafx-16 ball players hours of first-rate entertainment! Batter up!

ProTips:

  • Catch pop flies by placing your fielder atop the shadow of the arcing ball.
  • Pitch the first ball wide to pull the batter closer to the plate, Then pitch change ups that break into the batter. This will net consecutive fouls for strikes until the computer wises up.

The game of baseball's been turbocharged by the TurboGrafx-16. T.V.

Sports Baseball gives one to four players a chance at the big leagues. Teams from the East and the West Division include: Boston, New York, Chicago, Philly, Los Angeles, San Francisco, St. Louis, and Kansas City. Choose a team and a starting pitcher, and you're ready to play ball. For maximum game-action viewing, outfielding is done from a 3/4 overhead perspective. The batting takes place from a behind-the-batter perspective. Add up all these great features and you come up with a great-looking game.
