The Jammit wiki last edited by Homeslice on 07/30/13 11:18PM View full history

Jammit is a 1994 street basketball game from GTE Vantage Inc., where one player can enter a street basketball tournament, or two players can square off in a game of one-on-one. The game has three playable characters: Chill, Roxy (Jammit's lone female character) and Slade. The unselected characters serve as opponents.

The single-player mode consists of a series of one-on-one hoops battles, involving $100, $200 or $300 wagers on each game. A combination of victories and earnings will unlock the game of Cutthroat; a victory in Cutthroat will prompt a game versus the game's boss (The Judge) at his home court (The Palace).

Jammit is one of only a handful of games to feature an in-game Bass Boost option so that players can "turn on the bass back beat for the most happenin' music effects", according to the game's manual.

Jammit also features a trash talk toggle; players can choose to play the game with no trash talk, some trash talk, or lots of trash talk.

Gameplay

Jammit features a number of different play variations:

  • One on One - First to 21, fouls enforced, loser's outs.
  • Sweat - First to 21, fouls not enforced, winner's outs.
  • 2 Hot - First to 21, fouls enforced, loser's outs, and double points for shots made from the moving "X".
  • Poison - First to 21, fouls enforced, loser's outs, and if a player scores 20 points (Poison), it is reduced to 13.
  • Slams Only - First to 21, fouls not enforced, winner's outs, and only slam dunks count towards players' scores.
  • In 2 It - First to 21, fouls enforced, winner's outs, and only shots made from the two moving "X"s count; a shot made when both moving "X"s overlap results in double points.
  • Frenzy - First to 10, fouls not enforced, each player has a ball, and only shots made from the two moving "X"s count; a shot made when both moving "X"s overlap results in double points.
  • Cutthroat - First to 21, fouls not enforced, winner's outs, two players against one, "Poison"-style rules where a score of 20 or 13 is reduced by ten points, and up to three free throws after a field goal.
