Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game is a brawler in the style of Double Dragon and Final Fight, but it’s a lot shorter than the movie it’s based on.
The story of Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game involves a malevolent A.I, named AL-G Rhythm, who drags basketball star, LeBron James, into cyberspace. LeBron must team up with the Looney Tunes and find the Legacy Code, which can be used to stop AL-G Rhythm’s evil plan. The Legacy Code is spread across several floppy disks, which are guarded by AL-G Rhythm’s servants. The world they are stuck in is reminiscent of old arcade brawlers, like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, rather than the slick animated universe of the movie.
Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game is a brawler based on the movie of the same name, developed and published by Digital Eclipse. The game is free on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S, which is the perfect price for such a basic and short game.
Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game gives players access to three characters: Bugs Bunny, Lola Bunny, and LeBron James. The other members of the Looney Tunes are available as special attacks, which are tied to a meter that fills up whenever the player hits an enemy. These include characters like Taz, who performs a spinning attack that hits all of the enemies on the screen, or Granny, who uses her OP move to provide several food items to the player. Up to three players can tackle the stages together, fighting through hordes of enemies. There are a handful of robotic enemy types that are faced throughout the game, as well as three boss encounters.
Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game’s gameplay is basic and it’s ideal for kids who are excited about the movie. The game can be finished in around thirty minutes, though there are additional modes to unlock, based on the existing content. Space Jam: A New Legacy is free on several Microsoft platforms, making it the perfect bite-sized experience at that price.
The gameplay style of Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game is similar to old-school video game brawlers, like Double Dragon and Streets of Rage. The player has to beat up groups of robots that appear in each stage, before tackling a boss. There are no weapons in the game, except for a basketball, which can strike enemies from afar and can be charged up to deal extra damage. If the player leaves the basketball behind, then Tweety Bird will keep bringing it to them. This is only the basketball element in the game, outside of passing the ball to the other player.
Fans of the original Space Jam had a terrible game to tie in with the movie, and Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game is a much better experience by comparison. It feels as if the concept could have easily been expanded, as there plenty of scope for more characters and stages, but Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game is an ok game, for what little runtime it has.
Space Jam: A New Legacy The Game is available now for free on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S systems. Screen Rant played the game on Xbox Series X for the purpose of this review.
