Arch Rivals is a basketball game based on the arcade game Arch Rivals by Midway. The game works as a normal 2-on-2 basketball game, except you can attack your opponents. There are four 4-minute periods. The goal of the game is to get the highest score by the end of the game. The Game Gear version of Arch Rivals was programmed by Byron Nilsson, with graphics by Gary Tonge, programming support by Julian Scott, and music and sound effects by Mark Cooksey. Arc Developments also developed the Genesis version.
