NBA Jam is a basketball arcade game published and developed by Midway in 1993. It is the first entry in the NBA Jam series.
- 4 Player
The first NBA Jam game had a few hidden characters, but it has nothing on the Tournament Edition of the game, which went way over the top.
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.
