NBA Hangtime is an arcace basketball video game developed by Midway and released in arcades in 1996. Home versions followed for Nintendo 64, Playstation, Mega Drive, SNES and Windows. A version for Game.com was cancelled.
It is the third basketball game by the original development team behind the NBA Jam series. The title was changed due to the NBA Jam name being acquired by Acclaim Entertainment, the publisher of the games for the home market.
