I have this game. It's very similar to NBA Jam, but there's more to it. $1.99 is a good price. Also, if you have Xbox Game Pass, they have this game included, or if you have the Humble Monthly, it was just included in it this month.

A sequel is expected later this year. I have Nintendo Switch version. I do wish the action was as fast as NBA Jam, but not many basketball arcade options. Great price.

I haven't had any trouble finding matches, but it also works well if you're playing it single player.

I had a print out a sheet to know the PC controls. I extremely hate that it is okay for game companies to not explain how to play the game without a controller.

How am I suppose to know the main controls are on the num pad?

Not the greatest game. Shot timing is all over the place, and in harder games (against the CPU) you will miss everything while your opponent never misses. But for this price it will probably give you a few hours of fun.

Shot timing isn't difficult at all, but it depends on the players you are using. Also, you should be blocking a lot of the CPU shots if you are timing them. It's usually good to pick a good offensive player and a good defensive player,, so you can switch back and forth depending on who has the ball.
