The object of the game is the same as it is in real basketball. The player's team must score more points than the other team by making more baskets. All action is controlled with the touch pad.
The game has several modes. Tournament is the main mode, in which the player plays against a variety of teams. Practice teaches the player how to play. In Dribble Race, the player must be the first to gather 100 coins. In Coin Hunters, players must try to take coins from other players.
Although a direct sequel was never made, Square-Enix later made a second Mario sports game for the Nintendo Wii called Mario Sports Mix. It acts as a spiritual sequel instead as it has basketball as one of the sports and retains the playable Final Fantasy characters.
