Description of NBA Jam Tournament Edition

Read Full Description

One of the best arcade basketball games ever made, Acclaim's NBA Jam is a great conversion of the blockbuster arcade game to PC.

The Tournament Edition features several options not available on the original NBA Jam, including power-up icons that give you special dunk power, unlimited turbo, awesome speed, etc. Besides the power-ups, there are also hotspots that allow you to shoot the ball from certain areas on the court for 4, 5 even 9 points for one basket. What's particularly fun in this edition is obtaining a dunk power-up and dunking all the way from the other end of the court while starting from a 9 point hotspot, giving you a super-duper incredible 9 point, 80-foot flying slam!

For the NBA Jam "purists", the Tournament Mode can be turned on or off, so power-ups and hotspots are only on if you want them. All the other options of the original are still here, such as the difficulty level of the computer opponent, the speed of the clock, etc. The computer AI is competent, and it will take a while to win your first game even in the easy mode.

One of the game's most fun feature is the plethora of secret characters that become available for control by punching in their initials in a certain manner. Included are the traditional Bill Clinton and Kabuki (!), but Jam TE also incorporates several new secret players, including the game's programmer, Adisak. Each secret player has his or her secret slam moves that are very amusing to watch. Besides the secret characters, there is also a way to play with baby bodies. :)

The action is fast-paced and intense, and by keeping the court limited to four players, the ball moves around quite a bit. Perhaps the title?s best aspect is its simplicity in game design -- just grab that ball and sink it! And shooting hoops has never been so much fun. The outlandish ways to dunk -- flips, smoke, etc. -- only add to the wackiness of the game. Even after you have beaten all the teams, earned the expanded rosters and for all intents and purposes beaten the game, NBA Jam TE remains a blast to play. The power-ups, secret characters and hotspots make it a different game every time you play, and it's even more fun when you are playing against a friend or friends. Two thumbs up!

u must load iso on virtual CD drive you created with DAEMON TOOLS, then open virtual CD drive, then click on INSTALL.EXE and it will install NBA JAM on your hard drive so go to your hard drive installation folder and click on JAM and it will run.

What File do you click on to open the game

So yeah,, basically this game will crash after the new game start. Because it is a rip off of the CD version
1 you need dos32a instead of dow4gw ( which is the default inside the folder, dos4gw.exe that is ). so basically you need to download dos32a, copy it to the folder, delete he old dos4gw.exe, and rename dos32a to dos4gw.exe, start the game, problem solved.
also did I mention that it will only work at dosbox0.74? ( and above, if there is any in the future)

or alternately
download the full cd version (260MB approximately) from another site, and install and play it this will also solver the problem of the rip version where everyone have the same potrait.

Yes this was like the arcade. Made the 16 bit console versions look really bad.
