Space Jam is a video game that ties in with the film of the same name. Unlike the film and real rules of basketball, each team plays 3-on-3. Players have a choice whether to play as the Tune Squad or the Monstars. It features basic controls and 2D graphics. The game was developed by Sculptured Software, who coincidentally had developed the Looney Tunes based basketball game Looney Tunes B-Ball for Sunsoft the year before to the production of the Space Jam film.

Gameplay[edit]

Before the actual game of Basketball begins, Daffy takes part in a game where he has to find parts of Michael's uniform, avoiding the family dog Charles.

In-between quarters, Mini Games such as Shoot Out, Space Race and Hall of Hijinx are available, after the 2nd quarter, Bugs takes part in a mini-game where he has to find water bottles containing Michael's secret stuff.
