Description

Players choose an NBA team, each with two or three superstar players or at least their digitised faces, and play a side-scrolling basketball game, split into four quarters each new 3:00 quarter is a buy-in. Players can also enter their initials to keep track of their progress.

How to Play

If any one player scores three consecutive baskets, he or she is considered "on fire", a fire animation accompanies each shot, the person's Turbo meter does not diminish, goaltending is never called, and his or her accuracy goes way up. This continues until a player on the opposite team scores a basket, or until the computer decides the hot streak has gone on too long.

Once inside all arcade games are Free to Play!
