Slam City with Scottie Pippen is a FMV basketball video game developed by Digital Pictures for the PC and CD-ROM-based video game consoles such as the Sega CD. Scottie Pippen stars in the game, and performed the theme song. Ron Stein, who had previously directed the video footage for Prize Fighter, directed the video footage for the game.[1]

In the game, players face various opponents in one-on-one games of basketball, including Pippen himself.

The game allowed full screen video playback of low resolution MPEG video without specialized hardware utilizing video compression technology that Digital Pictures dubbed "Digichrome." Lag free on-screen selection was accomplished through a disc layout and buffering technology the company called "Instaswitch".
