They are also known for developing Muhammad Ali's Heavyweight Boxing on the Sega Genesis and Monday Night Football for MS-DOS. They also developed one NES game called Roundball 2-on-2 Challenge.

Troy Lyndon continues to this day as a game developer and has founded his own Christian game developed called Left Behind Games. Unfortunately, Michael Knox on September 15, 2009, age 48, died in Kaneohe, Hawaii from colon cancer.


Music Development


Russell Lieblich created a sound driver. The only game Park Place developed was Roundball 2-on-2 Challenge (NES). Michelle Sorger wrote MIDI files and had them converted to the sound engine, possibly by hand.


The company used GEMS.


The company used an audio driver from Chip Level Designs, while titles that they developed for Electronic Arts used EA's variant of the Kankichi-kun sound driver, possibly by Rob Hubbard.
