Jammit is 1 of my favorite games of all time for Sega Genesis. I spent many hours of my youth playing it.
The game is similar to NBA Jam (points are 1 point for dunks and shots in the line and 2 points outside the foul line)
Meet the crew:
Each have their strengths and weaknesses.
Chill is good at dunks but he's slow and sucks at 2 pointers.
Roxy is good at 2 pointers and pretty fast but not great at close range shots or dunks.
Slate is my favorite as he is fast, decent at every shot and is the best at trash talking.
Next pick your game:
1 on 1 - self explanatory, first to 21 wins. Loser takes the ball out.
Sweat - Same as 1 on 1 but no fouls and winner takes the ball out.
2 Hot - Same as 1 on 1 but winner takes the ball out and there are 2 x's that move around and if you shoot from an x it's worth 2 points.
Poison - Same as 1 on 1, first to 21 wins however hit 20 points and your points are cut to 13 so you have to get to 19 and hit a 2 point shot to win.
Slams Only - Same as 1 on 1 but only Slam Dunks count.
In 2 It - Same as 1 on 1 except the x's are back and only shots from the x's will count.
Frenzy - Same as In 2 It but there are now 2 balls instead of 1.
pick your court:
Slam Heaven is Chill's court, Snake Pit is Roxy's and Fishheads is Slate's.
1 player mode is a challenge to get through ever court and every game run by a baller known as the Judge. Judge picks all the rules.
Pick your person and you start with $300.
Play through the courts making bets and keep playing til you clean the other out to move on (I always go all in)
After getting through the main games a new 1 is unlocked called Cut throat
Cut Throat is all 3 players if someone scores they get free throw shots worth 1 point each. You can get 3 shots if you make the first 2, miss any and the ball is back in play. Hit 13 points and your score cuts to 3, hit 20 points and your score cuts to 10 so like Poison you have to time your shots.
Beat Cut Throat and now the Judge is pissed. You have to go all in with your money against him and the rules are random each time so you never know what you're playing against him.
Judge: "THIS IS MY HOUSE"
Beat the Judge and he's even more pissed.
Judge: "Never Again"
You use your money to buy Judges Court and the words behind you say "Slate/Roxy/Chill's House (Whoever you were)
You stand in front of the sign dancing as the credits roll.
The game is loaded with trash talking and is kinda dated now but I still enjoy digging it out from time to time.
