NBA Jam for the Super NES is an arcade-style two-on-two basketball game that lets you and up to three friends battle it out in high-flying, rough-and-tumble action. There are no referees and very few rules, so you can hack, push, and shove your opponents without ever getting called for a foul. You can select either a Head to Head or Team Game and decide whether you want the Tag Mode on or off. If you want closer scores, you can turn on Computer Assistance, which increases the shot-making odds of any team that falls far behind.

The "Jam" in the game's title refers to the emphasis of the game -- that of dunking the ball through the hoop. You control actual user of real NBA teams, such as Scottie Pippen of the Chicago Bulls and Hakeem Olajuwon of the Houston Rockets, as they soar above the rim and perform wild and crazy "Ultra-Jams," the likes of which have never been seen on ESPN's SportsCenter highlight reels. Each player is rated according to speed, three pointers, dunks, and defensive capabilities. Each of the 27 teams is represented by two of its better players.

A turbo button in conjunction with the standard controls allows you to run faster, throw elbows, knock down players, jump higher, and perform other advantageous feats. The turbo feature is limited in nature, but it will begin to replenish itself when you let go of the button. A turbo meter helps you monitor your energy.

A single game consists of four quarters, each of which is three minutes long. You can speed up or slow down the game clock and select how smart (on a scale of one to five) you want your computer opponents to be. A password feature enables you to save your progress when engaged in a full season of NBA action.

The popular granddaddy of arcade-style basketball is back. NBA Jam brings the supercharged, "in-your-face" highlights of NBA play to life with over-the-top, thrilling three-on-three basketball. Perform monster dunks and alley-oops and shoot from valuable hotspots to catch "on-fire" and obliterate the competition. You can choose from all 29 current NBA teams, players, and arenas and even outdoor playground courts like Rucker Park and LA's Venice Beach. With no fouls to slow down the game, be as rough and flashy as you can be.

The arcade basketball sim that has since become the stuff of legend. Hardware was somewhat limited when this game was being developed, so the programmers opted to reduce the number of players in order to allow up to four people to play the game at the same time without having to worry about what any computer-controlled players were doing, A wise move, in retrospect, as this was quite popular in its day and spawned a number of sequels and ports. The chief programmer was one Steve Snake, better known nowadays as the author of KGen98.

NBA Jam, is the original and rather limited port of the arcade game featuring two-on-two basketball, without having to worry about things like fouls and the laws of gravity. Seriously though the pure action approach can be appealing even if you're not a basketball fan. Up to four players supported on a real Genesis/Mega Drive.

Two-on-two basketball with digitized images of real NBA players, monster dunks and no referee - it's a blowout!

Released in February 1993. Many critics claim that the release of NBA Jam gave rise to a new genre of sports games, which were based around action-packed, unrealistic game-play.

Midway Games, no stranger to releasing landmark games having released "Pac-Man", had started experimenting with the userideas two years earlier, with the "High Impact Football" series. Both High Impact and Super High Impact had somewhat average success in arcades. It was not until the release of NBA Jam that gamers noticed the new genre. The game became exceptionally popular, and generated a lot of money for arcades after its release, largely because of the fairly expensive prices put on these games; a game quarter generally took two credits and a full game generally took eight, typically equal to $2.00 USD. Nonetheless, the game was a smash hit.

NBA Jam was one of the first real playable basketball arcade games (It was the first game to be officially licensed by the NBA (National Basketball Association)), and was also one of the first sports games to feature real teams, real players, and their real digitized likenesses. However, the unrealism of the game was the major drawing point, as the high flying dunks (often featuring players jumping twice their own height in the air while making highly acrobatic slams) were the games' signature. Of course, seeing NBA superstars like Hakeem Olajuwon, Karl Malone, David Robinson, Charles Barkley, and Shaquille O'Neal flying through the air with the greatest of ease brought just as many fans back. In time, players discovered another major feature of the game, as it was filled with Easter eggs, special features and players activated by initials or button/joystick combinations.

An update named NBA Jam Tournament Edition (commonly referred to as NBA Jam T.E.) featured updated rosters, new features and easter eggs combined with the same gameplay of the original. Teams now consisted of three players (with the exception of the new "Rookies" team, which consists of five players, all picked in the 1994 NBA Draft) and players could be substituted into the game. The game also featured new hidden teams and hidden playable characters. Early versions of the game included characters from Midway's Mortal Kombat games. Players were also assigned more attributes, including clutch and fatigue levels. In addition, the game also introduced features such as a "Tournament" mode that turned off computer assistance and on-court hot spots that allowed for additional points or special slam dunks.
