Street Hoop, known in Japan as Dunk Dream (ダンクドリーム?) and known in North America as Street Slam, is a basketball video game developed by Data East for Neo-Geo, released in 1994. The game features three-on-three basketball match-ups with a variety of different teams.
A sequel to the game, known as Dunk Dream 95 in Japan and Hoops 96 in Europe, was released in 1995. In 2010, the original game was released for the Wii on the Virtual Console as well as part of the compilation Data East Arcade Classics.
In the European and Japanese versions of the game, players can select a three-player team from a selection of 10 countries. In the US version of the game the countries are replaced with US cities. The selection screens, player skin colours and costumes also change between the versions.
Each team has a total of 18 points in several characteristics (Dunk, 3pts, Speed, and Defence), and 8pts max for each. Every team has its own strengths and weakness. For example, America (New York in the US Version) is good in dunks and bad in 3-pointers. On the other hand, Taiwan (Philadelphia in US version) is good in 3-pointers and bad in dunks.
