EDIT: Super Big THANKS for the Front Page Newgrounds! Even when I make a game that's too hard, you see the potential!

Take on Kim Jong Un in one-on-one, no-holds-barred basketball as Dennis Rodman! Do you have what it takes to win?

I made this game for Gameological's Play the Year 2013 in about 20 days, which makes it officially the shortest development time that I've ever had. It's a small game, but I added some medals and scoreboards to keep it interesting. Enjoy!

Arrows - Move
Space - Jump/Shoot


it was a good game concept, with a really intriguing idea (dennis VS kim? amazing, and real-life event too!). also, the game had simple, 8-bit graphics, but imo, this made it all the better.
i coudl even imagine the SNES or nintendo, or the mega-saturn box-art and commercials for the game, lol.

anyway, a good little game, and even it's INSANE difficulty marks just how much that even in basketball, the rules are made so that lil'kim wins (lol).
anyhow, a good little game.
i wonder tho, how can you get the ''much obliged'' medal? or the ''shut down'' one?
good game, overall.
it was funny.
do more stuff.

I'm glad you liked it, and I make games when I can. "Much Obliged" is just by visiting my site or AVClub.com. For "Shut Down D", you need to beat Kim without him scoring a single point. Good Luck!

This game is actually shit, I mean, you cannot take the ball from him NEVER at least he's not shooting, and he could shot like 3 time repeatly under the basket.

DBuck-Eye responds:

Uh, sorry?

Nothing too new. No mute button, no restart button, ridiculously unfair bot enemy and the shut down medal is just pure luck and not worth the frustration.
The endings are very well made, but that's about the only positive thing (for me).

DBuck-Eye responds:

You can press '0' (the number) to mute the game, sorry about the no reset, and I'd say there's some strategy to the Shut Down Medal (there's actually a YouTube video that shows how to do it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrEaseBOrc4

is it just me or does kim's score go up even when he aint making baskets? i scored like three in a row when it started but he was still ahead of me without making 1 basket??

DBuck-Eye responds:

Well, he does get more points per shot, (and also gets a point if you get a shot clock violation). Plus, I'll admit that the rim collision detection isn't perfect, so for fast moving shots from way downtown, it sometimes looks like he misses, when he actually makes it. The same thing should happen for you though if you take a long distance shot.

I am pretty bad at basketball in real life, so I also turned out to be pretty bad at it in a video game too. I really liked the simplisic graphics. I came up with a prety good strategy. You mostly just have to outrun him. You see, he really is a lot shorter (duh), so you have that advantage. Kim Jong Il was a fan of basketball too.

Let's hope this guy doesn't kidnap a movie director like he did. Or worse, kidnap a basketball player. It wasn't that well detailed, but that was not the point. The sounds were pretty good. I'm glad to know the politics behind all this.
