AtGames has added three new games to ArcadeNet for the Legends Gamer and Ultimate line of at-home arcade products. The new titles are Barkley Shut Up and Jam, Barkley Shut Up and Jam 2, and Ping Pong Masters ’93.
The AtGames Legends Ultimate and Legends Gamer home arcade machines come with built-in games. (Be sure to read our Legends Gamer Pro review to learn more.) However, AtGames also has a subscription streaming service called ArcadeNet. These three new games are coming to the ArcadeNet service.
Barkley Shut Up and Jam
Barkley Shut Up and Jam is a basketball game from publisher Piko. Here’s how AtGames describes it:
Barkley Shut Up and Jam is a two-on-two street basketball game where players take control of either former NBA MVP Charles Barkley or one of fifteen fictitious basketball players in a progressive series of matches on outdoor courts across different cities of the United States, with the exception of Phoenix, which takes place in an indoor court. Though very similar to NBA Jam in terms of gameplay and controls, the game provides a faster and more aggressive pace by containing less basketball play regulations and never penalizing a player, which emulates the looser and rougher nature of casual, urban basketball.
Like NBA Jam, players have access to a turbo function that allows the characters to move faster and steal easier. The player starts with the ability to use turbo six times but must earn each use back by performing well. Unlike NBA Jam, the player can not control their teammate, who is instead controlled by the computer.
Barkley Shut Up and Jam 2
Barkley Shut Up and Jam 2 is a basketball game from publisher Piko. Here’s how AtGames describes it:
The game is played from a horizontal perspective as the player and its teammate (computer or human) try to outscore the competition using any means necessary. Players can choose from ten “streetwise” players, not including Sir Charles himself, as they play in either an exhibition game or tournament. Since this is basketball on the street, players compete in eight different urban environments featuring graffiti, rubble, and even a moving train.
More than 2000 player animations have been included to show moves such as behind-the-back passes, double-clutches, alley-oops, and 25 different dunks. In addition, digitized voice samples of Charles Barkley offer either words of encouragement or ridicule while they play.
Ping Pong Masters ’93
Ping Pong Masters ’93 comes from the Italian developer and publisher Electronic Devices. Here’s how AtGames describes it:
Compete in a fast-paced ping pong tournament.
