A working Baseball-game? Yup!First of all, I had to skip Maze and Backgammon.
Maze, because no version would load properly and Backgammon, because the controls are absolutely horrendous. If i were to believe some other sources (and I do), those games are sucky anyways. Not so Baseball. It’s very simple, easy to learn and fun. You either play the batter and have to hit to ball so your opponent can’t catch it or you’re the pitcher and you try to catch the ball by moving your whole team. May sound complicated, but isn’t.

Reminds me of Drag Race in that both games are easy to understand but take some skill to master. Which is saying alot for such a basic console.

Again, I’m gonna link a vid to vghchannel so you can get a closer looks at the mechanics (I also still suck):
