At the bottom portion of the screen, there is a three-digit area to enter special codes just like the arcade game. You can enter codes by pressing the turbo, shoot, and pass buttons. To input more then one code, follow the procedure above, then quickly press the control pad right and down. The number you entered will flash and remain on-screen. At this point you can enter another number before the game starts. The first number you entered will be stored, as well as the second one. TIP: do this procedure quickly, or you'll run out of time. __________________________________________________________________ PAGE 15 ON THE COURT Are you ready to do some high flyin' slammin' and jammin'? let's get you familiar with the game screen before you start. Here are some things you'll need to know: Jump ball meter: At the start of the game, your player is at center court for the jump ball. The gauges on the right and left display the jump power for each of the two players in the circle. To have a better chance to win the jump, quickly tap your turbo and jump buttons to boost the power and height of your jump. Turbo meter: The top of the screen displays a colored turbo meter under the names of the four players on the court. As you use your turbo, the blue (player 1), green (player 2), yellow (player 3), or red bar (player 4) diminishes until it's gone. It recharges automatically when you aren't using it. __________________________________________________________________ PAGE 16 ON THE COURT Scoreboard: At the top, center of the screen, the scoreboard displays the score of the game, the quarter and the time remaining. When the clock is under a minute, it's displayed in the lower right corner of the screen. Shot clock: When you gain possession of the ball, you have 24 seconds to release the ball from your hands towards the hoop. If you hit the rim the 24 seconds is reset. When the shot clock counts down to 10 seconds, it will appear in the lower left corner of the screen. If you don't shoot in time, the words shot clock violation will appear, and possession of the ball will be given to the other team. Tag arrow: Above each player's head is a numbered arrow displaying a 1, 2, 3, or 4. The number lets players 1 through 4 know what player they are controlling on the court. When a player is off-screen, the arrow moves to the side of the screen, pointing to the location of your player. ___________________________________________________________________ PAGE 17 COOL MOVES This is the fun stuff. To learn the cool moves in NBA hang time, read through the following information. Dribbling: The computer takes care of your player's basic dribbling, but you can put some moves into the dribbles to keep from getting the ball stolen. While dribbling, quickly tap the turbo button twice to do a spin move around a player. Shooting: In NBA hang time, there's more to shooting then just pressing the shoot button. There's a good chance that another player will be in your face every time you attempt a shot. If a player jumps to block your shot just as you press the shoot button, you can hold the button down to delay the release of your shot. To get a little more height and energy into your shot, try pressing the turbo and shoot buttons at the same time. Your best chance to nail your jumper occurs when you release the ball at the peak of your jump. Also, to shoot around your opponent try pressing the control pad in all directions. Your player will do a fade away, a lean in shot, or a left/right leaning shot depending on which way you hold the control pad. ___________________________________________________________________ PAGE 18 COOL MOVES Passing: This isn't always such an easy skill. Make sure your man is open when you pass, and don't be a ball hog. It's much harder to take the ball away from two players working as a team. You can press the pass button to as you go to the hoop to dish off to your teammate or to escape opponents in your face at the hoop. Skilled point guards pass more creatively then big men or forwards. Rebounding: Don't always assume the ball is going down. Time your jumps at the net, so you can bring it down. Press your shoot button and the turbo button together to get high in the air. When you get a defensive rebound, your teammate should be running down the floor toward the net. Pass it deep. Offensive rebounds are a must. Follow your shot to the net to rebound a possible miss, then try pressing the shoot button while you're in the air. It's a pretty sweet move. ________________________________________________________________ PAGE 19 COOL MOVES On fire: A player who sinks three hoops in a row becomes on fire. The ball will smoke when he gains possession. When he shoots the ball, he has a much greater chance of making any shot he throws. Take full advantage of a teammate who's on fire. It's no time to be a ball hog. To extinguish a player who's on fire, the opposing team needs to make just one basket. When a team of players do three ally oops or double dunks in a row, you achieve team fire. At this point, both players are on fire for 25 seconds of possession time. The team fire clock will appear and countdown. It will stop when the team that's on fire does not have possession. Take your opponents to town and start a run. To stop team fire, the opposing team must complete an alley oop or double dunk. If a player or team is on fire at the end of the quarter, they will still be on fire to start the next quarter. {players on fire will have unlimited turbo and the ability to goal tend}. Hard contact: Here's a move that will help you start a run. Press the turbo and pass buttons to knock your opponent on his butt. The ball may or may not come loose, but it's a good opportunity to create a turnover. Spin move: As you dribble, quickly tap the turbo button twice. _________________________________________________________________ PAGE 20 COOL MOVES Alley opp: Yes, the most exciting part of the game! Dazzle your friends with this one. As you go hard toward your net, watch for your teammate flying toward the net. When he jumps high and flashes in the air, press the pass button to dish the ball off. If all goes well, he'll slam it home! Press turbo and shoot together, while moving towards the net, to go up for an alley opp yourself. Blocking shoots: This is one of the keys to a great defensive game. Try to time a player's shot attempt, then step in front of him and press the shoot button. If he's way up there, press your shoot and turbo buttons. Head fake: With your feet planted, quickly tap the shoot button to execute this move. A well executed head fake may cause your opponent to miss-time his block attempt. Clearing out: If for some reason you hold up and have to pass the ball or shoot, quickly tap the turbo button to grasp the ball hard and throw your elbows from side to side. This will make it more difficult for your opponents to steal the ball. __________________________________________________________________ PAGE 21 COOL MOVES Double dunk: Oh...wait...this is the most exciting part of the game. Teammates can both jump high and drive hard to the hoop, then the ball carrier must press the pass button to dish it off to his flashing teammate behind him. Repeat this move, the leave your opponents guessing if you'll pas or not. Either way, you should be able to score. The player without the ball must press the turbo and shoot buttons to jump high toward the net, behind the teammate carrying the ball. TIP: a player's attributes will tell you what skill he is best able to perform. A good shooter will make three-pointers, a power player will get more rebounds and be harder to clear out, and a dunker will do higher and more exciting dunks. Remember this when you select a player. _________________________________________________________________ PAGE 22 SUBSTITUTION At half time, you have the opportunity to substitute one or both players. You won't be able to change teams, so you'll have to select different players from the team you chose prior to the game. At the substitution screen, press control pad left or right to cycle through available players, then press the shoot button to return to the floor. ___________________________________________________________________ PAGE 23 STATISTICS At halftime, the halftime stats screen will appear with current game stats for all four players in the game. If a player is on fire at the end of a half, his stat window will have fire on its border. At the end of the game, the game end stats screen will appear. Like the halftime stats screen, the player of the game will flash. Following the end game stats screen, the scoring breakdown screen appears. It displays the breakdown of point totals for each quarter. COACHING TIPS After the 1st and 3rd quarters, coaching tips are displayed. Read them carefully to get helpful playing tips and special moves. If you go into overtime, you'll get more tips between each quarter. _____________________________________________________________________ __________________________________ PAGE 24 HIGH SCORES High scores are automatically entered into memory when you finish a game. To achieve a high score, a player must complete a minimum of 5 games. If you played well enough, the name you entered prior to the game will appear on the high scores. The high scores will then be displayed in the demo mode following the game. Press the B button to cycle through them, or the start button to return to the main menu.
