Enter homebrew developer Chef Boyardee, who stepped in where the rights-holders wouldn't to create Tales of Game's Studios Presents Chef Boyardee's Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden, Chapter 1 of the Hoopz Barkley SaGa. The game takes everything you loved about Shut Up and Jam -- the pixelated graphics, the tinny sound, and, of course, Charles Barkley -- and puts it in a post-apocalyptic RPG world where basketball has been outlawed. This might require some adjustment for those expecting a straight-up, NBA Jam-style basketball game, but cameos from fan favorites Michael Jordan and Larry Bird will satisfy those nostalgic whims.
