Introduction:
The Midway classic, NBA Jam, is back and put on mobile devices including the Windows Phone, iPhone/iPad, and Android devices. This game, of course, features the classic 2-2 basketball with insane and zany dunking and alley-oops. If you played the game back in the 90s, or even later than then and enjoyed it, then you're sure to enjoy the mobile port.

The game features three main game modes. The Play Now mode allows you to play a standalone game against the CPU of the teams of your choice. Classic Campaign mode puts you in a lenghty course of playing against a series of divisions with the team of your choice. Lastly, Multiplayer mode allows you to play online against random players with the team of your choice.

Walkthrough:
For this game, you may only need to play the Classic Campaign. It's suggested that if you don't have all of the miscellaneous achievements by the time you finish everything involving the Classic Campaign, that you try and "grind" out the achievement through the Play Now mode.

The most time consuming achievements are the ones that require you to complete the Classic Campaign using a team from each division. This means that you need to use a single team from the Central, Southeast, Atlantic, Northwest, Pacific, and Southwest and beat the Classic Campaign with each. There's a total of 37 games in a campaign and a total of six different divisions. If you break down the game into two minute quarters that means 8 minutes per game. Playing a total of 222 games at 8 minutes per game yields to about 30 hours total of gameplay in the Classic Campaign. It's safe to assume that one should yield most if not all of the achievements in the game while going through this game mode. If you, however, don't obtain miscellaneous achievements, refer to the guide below.

Conclusion:
While not particularly hard, earning all of the achievements in NBA Jam will be a quite consuming task. If you've managed to brave through all 222+ games required, congratulations on a well-earned 200.

You must be butter10
Go on a 10 game win streak in Classic Campaign. 

Simply win 10 games in a row in the Classic Campaign. If you're struggling with this achievement, you might want to try dumbing the game down to the easiest difficulty.

Buzzer beater15
Hit a Buzzer Beater shot to win a game. 

This might be a difficult achievement for some. To earn this achievement, you need to score a buzzer beater to win the game. A buzzer beater is a shot where the player disconnects from the ball (i.e. not a dunk, but a free-throw or even a layup) and makes a basket after the buzzer went off. To earn this achievement, you need to make one of these baskets to win the game. So, for this achievement to work, you ideally want to be tied or down a point and make the shot in the 4th quarter with a second (or less) to spare. Make the shot, buzzer goes off, score the basket, and win the game and the achievement is yours. You can also earn this achievement in any game mode.

Double Up10
Beat the CPU in a game by doubling their score or better. 

You just need to double the score of a CPU opponent in a game. For example, if the opposing team scores 20 points, you need a total of 40 points to earn this achievement. You can only earn this achievement in Classic Campaign or Play Now game modes.

Fired Up10
Get On Fire 4 times in a single game. 

You'll more than likely get this before getting the 1-shot on fire privilege, so I'll go through the methods on how to obtain this easily. Score three baskets with your character without having the opposing team score and you'll get on fire. Do this three more times and you'll earn the achievement. You can also earn this achievement in any game mode.

Century scorer10
Score 100 points in one game. 

This achievement is for scoring 100 points in a single game. This achievement is somewhat difficult to get in a two-minute quarter game. If attempting for this achievement, the player might want to adjust the game length to three minutes (or more) per quarter. You can earn this achievement in any game mode.

Grand scorer10
Score 1,000 points. 

This achievement is for scoring a cumulative total of 1,000 points across all competitive game modes. You can go into the leaderboards to check your progress if needed. You should more than likely earn this achievement during their first campaign playthrough.

100 Club10
Win 100 games. 

This achievement is for winning a cumulative total of 100 points across all competitive game modes. You can go into the leaderboards to check your progress if needed. You should more than likely earn this achievement during their third campaign playthrough.

High flyer5
Perform 10 successful alley-oops in one game. 

To perform an alley-oop, your teammate needs to have control of the ball, so press the blue button to pass to him. After that, head towards the basket and hit the green button to perform a dunking move. During your dunk, your teammate will pass to you and you'll dunk the ball. Do this 10 times and you'll earn your achievement. You can also earn this achievement in any game mode.

Glass cleaner5
Grab 10 rebounds in one game. 

Start a game (three or four minutes per quarter) with a team that has a player that's terrible at making baskets (player two) and a player that's good at getting rebounds (player one). Start the game, go to options and go to gameplay, and select yes to control both players. Resume the game and go to player two and start making scoring attempts. Your player one should be getting rebounds fairly frequently. Check your progress by pausing the game. Once you have ten rebounds with player one, go back into the menu and undo the settings. With this you'll have control of player one and you'll have ten rebounds. Finish the game and earn the achievement. You can also earn this achievement in any game mode.

Sticky fingers5
Steal the ball 10 times in one game. 

Start a somewhat lengthy game and pick a team that has a good defensive player that is good at stealing. Play as that character and just start swatting or charging/shoving your opponent, once the ball is loose, make sure you or a teammate retrieve the ball to count as a steal. You can check your progress in the pause menu. Once ten steals have been earned, you can rest and finish the game to earn the achievement. You can also earn this achievement in any game mode.

Throw it down, Big man5
Dunk the ball 10 times in one game. 

To dunk, you need to be in close proximity to the basket with the ball. Once you're close, run towards the basket and press the green button to score. Dunk the ball 10 times and finish the game to earn the achievement. You can check progress by pausing the game. You can also earn this achievement in any game mode.
