Dr. J and Larry Bird Go One on One, commonly known as One on One, is a 1983 computer basketball game written by Eric Hammond for the Apple II and published by Electronic Arts. It was ported to the Atari 8-bit family, ColecoVision, Commodore 64, MS-DOS, Tandy Color Computer, and later to the Macintosh, Amiga, and Atari 7800. In Europe the publisher was Ariolasoft.
The player controls basketball star Julius Erving or Larry Bird in a game of one-on-one against another player or the computer. With excellent animation, the game allows for play to a certain score or timed games. On offense, a player could spin or shoot; on defense, attempt to block or steal the ball, with over aggressiveness penalized by fouls. A hard dunk could shatter the backboard, prompting a janitor to come out and sweep up the shards, directing censored complaints at the player in the process.
