Michael Jordan in Chaos in the Windy City
a game by Electronic Arts
Michael Jordan has been keeping mighty busy since hanging up his Chicago Bulls jersey. First he took on baseball's minor leagues. And soon he'll be up against a psychotic scientist in Michael Jordan in Chaos in the Windy City from Electronic Arts. This combination Action/Sports title pits Chicago's hero against the mechanized forces of Dr. Max Cranium, who's abducted all the other great basketball players of the world. Armed with only his basketball, Jordan will try to slam, jam, and outshoot the forces of evil. Can he make the world safe for athletes everywhere? He may have left the Bulls, but he still knows a thing or two about basketball.
The trouble begins when Jordan shows up for a Chicago charity game—alone. A basketball crashes through the ceiling, and there's a ransom note attached. It leads Jordan on a wild chase throughout Cranium's hide-outs in the Windy City, from his factory to his cells, his sinister lab, and the showdown on the river. Jordan's gotta hop the city's el trains to get from location to location—they're side-scrolling levels in themselves.
All Jordan's signature moves come into play. Dunks, back shots, flips, and twists are all part of the action. He'll sink baskets in every imaginable way to acquire power-up b-balls that seek, flame, or freeze his oversized foes. Where does he get the energy? Sport drinks and breakfast cereal, of course.
Puzzle solving is also on the agenda. When Jordan finds keys, he can rescue hostages who'll give him clues. And then there's the pressure of a ticking stopwatch — Jordan doesn't have forever to unravel Cranium's twisted plans. Sheesh. Who ever thought retirement would be such a challenge?
