In the game you play street basketball two-on-two with your friends on with computer. So there are no referees, no fouls, and no shot clock, but the teams called by the names of cities such as Phoenix or Chicago. You can choose your player from 16 available players, including Barkley himself.

With Barkley: Shut Up and Jam!, Accolade attempted to copy the huge success of NBA Jam by Midway/Acclaim. A lot of gameplay elements are similar to that title. Because Charles Barkley had made a deal with Accolade he had to be left out of the tournament edition of NBA Jam.
