Boomshakalaka! I was really excited when EA Mobile released NBA Jam back in March, but I was quickly saddened to see they only supported a handful of devices, not including any of the newer ones I had in possession. I’ve been checking the app regularly to see if they would add more devices and last week EA finally pushed out a new release.
To my surprise, NBA Jam now supports almost every popular Android device. This includes the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, ASUS Transformer Prime, HTC One X, Galaxy Tab 10.1, Nexus S, and more. The game still sells for $4.99, but it’s totally worth the asking price if this game was one of your childhood favorites.
Highlights of NBA Jam include:
- 3 modes of play let you ball the way you want: Play Now — Select a team and jump right into the ballgame. Classic Campaign — Defeat all other teams to win the championship, and unlock legends, hidden players, and outrageous cheats. Local Multiplayer — Go big head 2 big head against a friend via local WiFi or Bluetooth
- Play as your favorite Stars from all 30 NBA Teams
- Featuring the voice of Tim Kitzrow (the original NBA JAM play-by-play announcer), you’ll hear all the classic catchphrases plus a few new ones
- Unlock legends from the classic arcade and Open up outrageous cheats.
This couldn’t come at a better time as the NBA playoffs are in full swing. I’m a huge San Antonio Spurs fan, so it’s time for me to go load up a game and smack down the Lakers. Hopefully EA will continue to update the game and more features, like online multiplayer (please?!).
