I've downloaded ImpactJS and can follow the Pong demo and am trying to evaluate if I can use this engine for the game I want to do. We are looking to do something very similar to Jordan vs Bird basketball (see screen shot). I'm coming to the conclusion that I would need a 3D engine for that, but wanted to confirm before I move on.

Thanks in advance

You are way over complicating this if you think this needs a 3D engine. The original game was on the NES. You can basically say that any game created on the NES could be recreated in Impact without too much trouble.

You definitely don't need a 3D engine. Impact is tailor made for games like this.
