My friend has an NBA Jam arcade machine in his garage, which is cool and all, but it smells in there. It smells like garage and gym equipment. It also gets really hot in the summer. Wouldn't you rather be in the pool, iPad in hand, looking at porn and then quickly switching apps to NBA Jam when someone comes along?
The arcade hit of the 1990's is now an iPad game, complete with all 30 NBA teams and the original play-by-play announcer. There's the classic campaign mode, an instant start game called Play Now, and local multiplayer over Wifi or Bluetooth, with both the iPad and iPhone versions.
EA hints at some secret players that you can only play on the iOS versions of NBA Jam.
