Baseball Simulator 1000 (Nintendo NES, 1990)
|In the game, there are four leagues available. The first two contain only normal teams, the third contains only ultra teams, and the fourth allows a player to create their own league from any mixture of normal and ultra teams. A player can either control a normal baseball team or an ultra baseball team with super hitting and pitching plays to boost their chances of winning.
Each Ultra play uses a certain amount of points. Ultra points are limited and when they are all used up no more ultra plays can be performed. There are also some Ultra Upgrades, for outfielders and batters. These cost more points to assign, but become intrinsic effects, and do not cost points to use.
Within Baseball Simulator 1.000, there is an exhibition mode, a regular season mode, and a team edit mode that allows the player to make his own players to form a customized baseball team. A magic number appears during the regular season, telling the leading team how many victories they have to make until they are assured the pennant. A season can be 5, 30, 60, 120, or 165 games. Out of the 18 possible teams, only six teams can be used in a division/league during the season. However, there are no playoffs for the top two teams. Whoever wins the division is the champion.
Electronic Gaming Monthly awarded it "Best Sports-Themed Video Game" in their 1989 awards issue, giving it "top honors ... [for] taking liberty with the sport itself." Allgame gave the game 3.5 out of 5.
