Under The Tree: Base Wars: Cyber Stadium Series

Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas! Happy New Year! Welcome back to the Under The Tree series of blog posts. These holiday season write-ups pop-up each week during the month of December. Each post highlights an old sports-related toy that probably was hiding under the Christmas tree at one point in time.

This year we will start off with Base Wars: Cyber Stadium Series for the NES.

Released for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in 1991, Base Wars: Cyber Stadium Series is a baseball game that takes place in the 24th Century. Human ballplayers have been replaced with robots. Why? Because humans began demanding too much money ($23.4 billion per year for a .250 hitter). Team owners rebelled and replaced them with mighty programmable machines built for combat.

Cyborg, tank, flybot, and motorcycle are the four types of robots that you can play.

All of the normal elements of a baseball game are here – pitching, hitting, fielding, and base running. You’ll also find one-on-one battle royales for base possession using laser swords, fire guns, and various forms of ammunition. Having the most runs after nine innings guarantees a win. A win can also happen if you destroy three of the other opponents robots.

The more you win the more money you will make. You can then use that money to repair and upgrade your robots with all sorts of toys such as hyper engines, ultra shoulders, and iron gloves. All of these fun items will give you an unfair advantage over the opposing team.
