Harlem Globetrotters is a sports game featuring America's favorite basketball team, the Globetrotters. You can play as the Globetrotters or play as your own team and go against the Globetrotters, but beware, the AI in this game isn't going down without a fight!

That's going to give me nightmares...


There is only one real song in the game. Rob Wallace, the only known composer at Softie was given the sheet music for Sweet Georgia Brown by the company's founder Bruce Sandig. Sandig then had Wallace arrange the music on a MIDI file and then Sandig converted the MIDI file into the game. The game uses the NES's hardware decay instruments so it sounds like a dull piano. For some unknown reason, from the second loop on in the title screen music, the triangle channel stops playing. This is probably because the programmers forgot to program the triangle channel to loop.
