When it comes to basketball video games, what do you think of mostly? The NBA Live
series of NBA Jam
? Well, here comes NBA Hangtime, developed by Midway, which surprisingly was developed by the same team who developed NBA Jam. This means that these two games are identical, right? Well, yes. They are identical, however, there are some new elements in Hangtime. The most notable one is the "Create Player" feature, which allows you to create your own custom player, specifying height, weight, power, shooting and defensive skills using a limited number of attribute points. Created players can be made more powerful as players earn additional attribute points by winning games. This feature is know in many NBA, FIFA
games. Additions to the gameplay include spin moves, alley oops and double slam dunks - a slam dunk performed after one team member in the middle of a dunk passes to the other member. Alley-oops and double dunks can trigger the new "team fire" mode in which both team members are on fire. There are other additions as well, but it's up to you to find out. Overall, NBA Hangtime is a great arcade-style basketball video game. If you ever stumble upon a copy, go ahead and play it!
