NBA Rush Is The Weird Spiritual Successor To Space Jam You Never Knew You Wanted

Space Jam may just be the best film of the 90s. Sure, it was pretty awful if you look at it objectively, but it's just so much fun to watch. Michael Jordan teaming up with the Looney Tunes to take on the Monstars with a soundtrack inspired by all the best/worst music of the 90s came together to give us something truly special.

Unfortunately, we're never going to get another Space Jam. We're coming ridiculously close, however, with the release of NBA Rush. The latest mobile title from RenRen Games puts players into the role of 90 NBA players as they protect the world from invading aliens with slam dunks.

Let me repeat that - you kill aliens with slam dunks.

Outside of this new and truly innovative gameplay concept, NBA Rush is your standard infinite runner. Players will run forward on a set path avoiding obstacles and collecting coins while killing aliens with their boom shakalaka-inducing slam dunks.

While there's no gameplay yet, here's a screenshot that gives you the only reason you need to play this game:

NBA Rush Is Weird

NBA Rush is currently available only on iOS. There's no word yet if this amazing title will make its way to Android, but there's a solid chance it will.
