One of my favorite games on the original NES as a kid was Super Dodgeball. Like many games on that system, the graphics were not great… in fact, the system couldn’t really handle so many sprites moving on the screen at once and characters would often flicker in and out of view. But the gameplay was easy to pick up, competitive, and addictive! The variety of different “super balls” you could master (unique to different players) and the different countries the teams came from also made it a lot of fun. This game is responsible for a lot of sore thumbs from my friends and I back then. I was playing this game on the Wii with my daughter (thankfully it’s available on the virtual console) a while back and thought it would be fun to draw two of the main characters from it… Sam from Team USA and Boris from Team USSR. I’ve always been sad that they never made a newer version of this game for more recent consoles.
