Relive your childhood or just pass some time with the NBA Jam mobile app.

When NBA Jam was first released in 1993, no one could have predicted how huge the game and subsequent spinoffs would become.  

The fast-paced, high flying exaggerated realism made for simple, exciting gameplay, and many have fond memories of a childhood spent playing the game.

Now, you can relive those childhood memories or just pass some time on the bus with the NBA Jam app, available in the iTunes Store, Google Play, and for Android.

The NBA Jam app from EA Sports does an excellent job of recreating the fast paced, cartoonish action and ridiculous dunks that defined the original series and made it so popular. The game also features the voice of the original NBA Jam play-by-play announcer.

For those new to the series, NBA Jam gives you a fun pick-up and play basketball title for your mobile device. You play two on two games with some of the NBA’s biggest stars in a world where everyone can jump twenty feet in the air to throw down a crazy dunk and things like shoving and elbowing players out of the way is not only legal but encouraged.

The game has a very arcade-style feel, a simple control scheme, and is sure to be insanely easy and addictive for basketball fans and newcomers alike.

Overall, the game doesn’t differ hugely from the early releases, but for long-time fans of the game will get exactly what they are looking for a nostalgic gameplay experience.
