Review
Over The NetSTORY / GAMEPLAY
Over The Net is a classic beach volley game in which the rules are identical to those of volleyball: 3 ball contacts are allowed for each attack or defense and the ball must not be touched twice in succession by the same player. The matches last for 1, 3 or 5 sets and each set is won by the first team that reaches 15 points. You can choose any of the 12 (!) available teams. A single match can be played or you may choose to participate in the Sea Cup where the matches will take place in a series of seaside resort locations. The tournament keeps going at increasingly difficult levels up to the final goal, the much aspired Sea Cup! The gameplay is quite easy. Each human player is assigned as one man and, depending on how you set up the teams, the rest players are controlled by the computer. During a volleyball match, a shadow appears on the beach to indicate the ball's position so you can estimate where the ball will fall for the nearest player to get to that point and receive it. If the computer controlled player does not move, this means that the human controlled player is the nearest one and must rapidly move to the point where the ball will land.

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The game runs only in VGA graphics and offers pretty colorful scenes with more than 140 simultaneous colors! Compared to the Amiga version the DOS is way more colorful but still the Amiga version has better details. The sprites (players) move fast with nice animations but unfortunately there is no animated scene at the background (well at least the Amiga version has just a few animated flags but nothing special there too). The game's sound on the DOS is its weak point and although it includes a nice introductory tune at the main menu each match is almost soundless with just a few dull sound effects.
