You and your teammate have to travel around some of the greatest cities in the world in an exciting elimination contest, where only one team can be the winner of beach volley cup. The first match for your team will be in the historic city of London. All basic movements are here. The rules are easy; one of the teams has to reach seven points first. Each team is allowed three touches of the ball before it has to be smacked over the net, the basic rule for a volley game of course. The ball is passed around the court until someone attempts a slam shot, where the players wait by the net for a pass and leap up into the opponent's half. When leaping for a slam, the jump must be timed perfectly. Otherwise your player will swing to shoot, miss, and fall back to the dust. Well, win as many games in order to visit some beautiful places such as Africa, Sydney, Miami etc
The game itself is so hard that, after a while, it almost seemed pointless playing it. The computer opponents are not intelligent, but have been programmed to be in the right spot, at the right time, most of the time! Well, slamming the ball, the opponent is almost always there to block it. It’s a famous title though, due to its nice graphics and sound presentation.
The Atari ST port offers some great visuals here and similar to the Commodore Amiga version. All stages offer up to 16 colors on screen though, but still look great! The characters are perfectly suited to this game and move smoothly and convincingly. Backdrops are humorous and well drawn, and each different location comes with its own graphical display of the landscape's most well-known landmark. Between level/location loading there is always a related humorous little beautifully animated sketch involving your team as you travel around the globe and reach the next location.
Sound offers some nice SFX (not sampled as found only in the Amiga version) along with a few tunes that suits the purpose of the game superbly. Speech is also included when a new location is reached.
