NBA Hang Time is an arcade basketball game which was ported to the Sega Mega Drive.

Hang Time is a direct descendant of NBA Jam: Tournament Edition, however was forced to change its name after Acclaim Entertainment bought the rights to the NBA Jam moniker. It would be followed by NBA Showtime: NBA on NBC some years later.



High Voltage Software claims to have been working on Sega Saturn and PC versions,[3] but neither appear to have materialized. The Saturn version was mentioned in C&VG #181,[4] #185,[5] #187[6] and #188[7] along with release dates.
