JAM RULES & CONTROLS
An NBA Jam game is divided into 4 quarters of three minutes each. A game begins with a tip-off, as 2 players leap for the ball in order to proceeds control. Possesion of the ball at the beginning of the second and 4th quarters goes to the home squad (team two), and to the visiting team (team one) starting the third regardless of who wins the initial tip or who possesses the brawl when the previous quarter ended.
The object of the game is to have outscored your opponents when the last cablegram sounds. At that place is a 24-second shot clock in effect. A basket counts for two points when it is shot from inside the iii-point line, and three points when shot from behind it.
A defensive player tin can cake a shot, only but when the ball is on the upward part of its arc. If it is touched by a defender on its downward flight, a goaltending telephone call is made, and points are awarded whether or not the handbasket was going to go in. Once the brawl touched the rim, still, it can be grabbed past any player, either offensive or defensive.
To make identifying the brawl-handler easy, whenever a player has possession of the ball, an orange basketball indicator will apear behind his name at the top of the screen. If nobody has possession-the ball is in the air or has been knocked away, there is no indicator.
If a player scores iii baskets in a row, he is “on fire!” During the time, he has unlimited turbo, and a much better chance of sinking shots from anywhere on the flooring! Only one player can exist “on fire” at a fourth dimension. Being “on fire” lasts until the next opposing basket goes in, meaning that a teammate tin score without disrupting the fire. Even if the opposing squad cannot score, nevertheless, your burn will eventually go out by itself. The brawl glows when the histrion on burn holds it and smokes when he shoots it!
Beyond those, there are very few rules to a NBA Jam session. In that location are no fouls-no reaching in, no hacking, not fifty-fifty a pushing foul, so play strong and take no prisoners! The controls are as follows:
Moves your player up and down the court. When any role player if off-screen, his position is marked by an arrow with his player number and color, the top of the arrow showing where he is vertically on the court, and altitude from the edge showing how far off-screen he is.
SHOOT/Block (BUTTON A):
When your team has the ball, the
push will cause you (and on a one-human team, your computer teammate besides) to shoot for the basket. Your role player releases the brawl when you release the button. Releasing the brawl at the apex of your bound gives your shot greater accuracy, but releasing information technology quickly or very slowly can often foreclose a leaping defender from blocking or stealing the ball. Tapping
rapidly executes a caput-simulated which may deke the defense out of its shoes, merely it discontinues your dribble, then you lot must either pass or shoot the ball before you lot can motility!
When your team does not take the ball,
causes your role player to jump up for a block. Timing is crucial to denying the shot. Jump too early on and the shooter tin wait until you fall out of the way, spring too belatedly and the shooter tin can shoot information technology over y’all! Many times your defender volition get a piece of the ball without rejecting the shot completely. The ball will wink white whenever your defensive player makes contact with it.
Pass/STEAL (Push C):
When your squad has the ball, the pass button will cause you (and on a one-man team, your computer teammate) to pass the brawl to his teammate. Merely a passed ball is easily intercepted by a defender, so look before you pass!
When your team does not have the ball, tapping this button causes your player to swipe at the ball in the hopes of either stealing information technology or knocking it out of an opponent’s easily.
TURBO (BUTTON B):
TURBO causes your player to run faster than he normally would (determined past his attributes), whether on criminal offence or defense, allowing you to blow by a defender, or to pace around a pick and cake a shot! Unfortunately, your player has only a limited amount of turbo power, indicated by the meter nether your players proper noun.
Every bit you use it, the meter runs down, simply when y’all release TURBO, information technology begins to regenerate. A player using Turbo tin can be spotted by his colored shoes! When a player is “on burn down,” he has unlimited turbo until his fire is put out, but to apply the turbo, the button must still be held!
Borer TURBO several times quickly causes your player to grab the ball and throw his elbows, a move which tin often knock defenders away and give yous a make clean shot at the basket.
TURBO + SHOOT/BLOCK (BUTTONS A+B):
When your histrion has the ball nearly the handbasket, pressing these two buttons causes you (and on a one-human team, your computer teammate) to get for the jam, slam-dunking the ball into the basket. At that place are many spectacular “Ultra-Jams” that can exist executed, depending on the number of factors such as the players dunking ability and position. Sometimes these rim-rockers will even shatter the backboard! Your player volition only jam if he is moving, however, so be certain to drive towards the hole if you lot want to slam!
When your team doesn’t have the ball, pressing these ii buttons make your actor get for a super block, jumping higher than he unremarkably would!
TURBO + PASS/STEAL (BUTTONS B+C):
Pressing these buttons will cause the brawl-handler to execute a much faster and safer laissez passer than the PASS push button itself. Often these volition take the form of behind-the-back or bounce passes.
Pressing these buttons when your histrion doesn’t take the ball makes your thespian shove. When the shove connects, it knocks a role player down onto the floor, out of the way, or fifty-fifty into the stands. Be conscientious, because you can knock down your teammate besides! Defensively the shove is a useful tool for stealing the ball, bringing downward rebounds, and stopping “easy jams!” Offensively the shove is a good style to articulate an area so a teammate has a clear shot at the basket.
