WELCOME TO SLAM CITY
All right, Ace, You're the new guy. So it J s not
like we're just going to give you respect. You r re
gonna have to earn it.
Look. This ain't some kind of summer camp, This
is the street. We don't play ball here just to pass
time, It's a way of life, We take our hoops seriously.
Around here, we play to win.
You are gonna take on four of the toughest players Slam City has
to offer. You make a nice shot against these guys, you get some
respect. You take it to the hole strong, you get more respect. You
figure out how to really sky - and l mean some outrageous slam
dunk action - you're gonna see that respect really take off.
'Course, respect ain't all a one way street. Let one of these guys
get by you and you're gonna lose some of that respect Let them
beat you, and we're talking sinking ship.
What does all this respect get you? A chance for a
shot at the pros, maybe a Nike shoe deal of your
own, and — oh, yeah — a chance to go one-on-one
with the man himself — Scottie Pippen!
Set up your Sega CD and Sega Genesis as described in the
documents that came with the systems. Make sure you have
your control pad plugged into port 1 (the one on the left).
-Install your Genesis 32X as described in the documents that
came with the 32X. The 32X version of Night Trap will not work
without the Genesis 32X installed.
Turn on your TV or monitor, then turn on your Genesis.
The Sega CD logo screen will appear.
Open the disk tray or CD door.
Place any Slam City r “ CD in the tray label side up.
Close the tray or door.
Q-If the Sega CD logo is on the screen, press Start to begin the
game. If the Control Panel is still on the screen, move the cursor
to the CD-ROM button and press button A, B or C to begin.
Slam City has so much action, it had to go on four compact
discs. You can start the game from any disc. If the disc you have
inserted does not have the opponent that you want to play,
you will be asked to insert one of the other discs.
If you know which opponent you want to play before you start,
you can put the correct disc in at the beginning. Disc 1 contains
all the action for Fingers, disc 2 has Juice, disc 3 has Mad Dog,
and disc 4 has Smash. All four discs have the action for Scott ie
Pippen - but remember, you don r t gel to play Scott ie until you
have earned at least 1 billion respect points.

GAME PLAY FOR REBOUNDING
Press the left or right on the D-Pad to move across the screen
to intercept the ball.
■ ■ Press the A Button to jump for the rebound.
Your strategy? This ought to be quick. Take it to the hole, Score
more than your opponent. Got it?
All right, Ace. Here's how,
Move right or left to try to get a clear shot at the
basket without your opponent getting in the way.
Press the A Button to begin your shot. Time
your release so that you let go of the A Button
when you are as close as possible to the top of
your jump, and when your opponent hasn't yet
gotten his or her hands up,
Make sure you remember to release the ball white you're still in
the air. You'll lose some serious respect ff you "up and down/'
Adjust the strength of your shot by pressing up or down on the
0-Pad. The farther you are from the basket, the more strength
you'll need or it's Airball City. Set it too strong when you're dose
to the hoop and you might as well get out the cement 'cause
we're talking brick,
What you gotta look for is a hole in the D, As good
as these guys are, every now and then you'll get an
opportunity to break by them and stuff one down
If you see an opportunity to break by your opponent
to the right, press the D-Pad to the right to move all
the way to the right then press the B Button,
If you see an opportunity to break by your opponent to the
left, press the D-Pad to move atl the way to the left then press
the B Button.
What you don't want to do is break in the wrong direction, or
keep pressing the 8 Button looking for a break opportunity,
tf you telegraph moves like that, you'll get the ball stolen from
you every time.
Rumor has it, Ace, that you have a few tricks
up your sleeve. They say you can sky to the hoop
like no one else. If you can pull off one of these
Super Slams, respect is going to rain down from
If you're good and fast, and hit the break opportunities at their
sweet spot , you'll pull off a Super Slam.
The more respect you earn, the bigger the Super Slam sweet
spots will be. There may even be a few secret codes that increase
how easy they are to get, or that maybe make every one of your
slams a Super Slam, You figure it out.
This is pretty basic stuff too, Ace. Stop your opponent from
scoring. Got it?
The basic idea on D is to keep your body right in front of your
opponent. If you leave an opening, your opponent will blow by
you so fast all you'll feel is the breeze.
If you think you can see where your opponent is looking to break
to the hole, press the C Button to try to steal the ball. You want
to try to steal only when it looks like your opponent is trying to
break on you, Otherwise, if you keep swatting down low at the
ball, your opponent is just gonna shoot over the top of you.
If your opponent tries to take a shot, you better get those hands
up. The faster you react with the A Button to get a hand in his
or her face, the worse the chance the ball has of going in.
If you time it just right and press the B Button at the moment
your opponent releases his shot, you just might do some
PICK YOUR GAME
There are a few important choices you have to make before
you play. All of these choices are described below in more detail
In the section ''Choosing Options/'
First, if you are just starting out you may want to turn the
TRAINING MODE on. With Training Mode ON, you can try to
learn the weaknesses in your opponent's defense, and their
moves to the basket when they're on offense.
You can either play for points or by time. You can choose the
kind of game you want to pfay by selecting GAME TYPE from the
Another important choice you have to make is the BUCKETS
MODE. With Buckets Mode ON, the player who scores gets to
keep the ball for another offensive drive.
Regardless of the type of game you pick, each game consists of a
series of drives to the basket, with either you or your opponent
on offense, andtheotheron defense. There is always a ten
second shot clock, so don't screw around. Forget to take a shot
and you've just turned over the ball.
This is what it's all about - respect. You earn some respect every
time you score. You gain more respect for a slam than for a shot.
You get more respect for a Super Slam than for a regular slam.
You get respect every time you win. Win big, you get even more
respect. The tougher the opponent, the more respect you'll earn
Once you consistently beat any one opponent, the more you play
that opponent the less respect you'll continue to earn.
If you're playing with Training Mode ON, you get no respect at all.
THE GAME SCREEM
During game play, the game screen shows several
Your score and your opponent's score are shown
at the bottom left and right corners of the screen
Your shot strength meter is just above your score on the left side
of the screen.
The ten second shot clock is located just above you're opponent's
score on the right side of the screen.
If you are playing a game with a time limit instead of playing
until someone reaches a specific score, the game dock appears
on the right side of the screen above the shot dock.
Respect is a two-way street. Let your opponent score on you and
you'll lose some respect. Lose to an easy opponent and you're
going nowhere fast.
The only way you are going to get any attention from the pros
is to earn a lot of respect. And the only way to get a shot at
Scottie Pip pen is to earn at least 1 billion respect points.
Finally in the center of the screen at the bottom are your

serious hoop action is. Well, you found it Now you
have a lot to prove and face an uphill battle to earn

$2 beat He telegraphs his breaks to the basket, and his

Juice is tougher than she looks. You might earn some
He's been known to ask for help dim bang off the
backboard after skying past you to the hoop. White
men can jump. A quick word of caution - this guy is
crazy. Anytime you do something good against Mad
Dog you are gonna earn some respect.
He r s from the same gene pool as the big men.
Hates humanity. Hates you. Here's another guy that
likes living up to his name. He J s gonna be pretty
hard to beat, but you'll earn some mean respect if
you pull one off against this guy.

that maybe on a good day sorta looks like him. There
ain't nobody tougher. You only get a chance to play
Mr. Pippen if you earn some real respect - at least

everything that happens on and off the court.
He hangs out with Malik 'cause he thinks hip-hop
culture is cool. But with that funky hat, most people
think he looks like one of Santa's helpers.
