Game Introduction

Two player competitive play or one against the CPU, in this beach volleyball simulator. Good looking graphics and great music. You play one game against successively more skillful players as you progress through cities across the USA. Game play is challenging and your opponents get tough pretty quickly and there's a time limit to the match. You control two players on screen. Once you intercept an incoming shot the computer takes control of that player allowing you to get the second player in position to slam the ball over the net. You can additionally make diving interceptions. A flashing blue target on the ground shows where the ball will land. As well as muscle bound beach heroes and cheering crowds, there's a bikini clad young woman who raises her arms to show who won the point. The board also features two additional connectors, which are for the four-player version. Also see V'Ball.
