Sport was never my strong point, but Bump, Set Spike ?alias international Volleyball - is great.

Volleyball is just like tennis doubles but the court's narrower, the ball is the size of a football, it's thrown - there are no rackets and you only need ten points to win. Well, OK, it's not just like tennis is it?

When you throw the ball an X is shown on the place where it will land and the opponent has to rush to the X before the ball gets there.

On some occasions you need to pass the ball from one of your players to another. They each have an identity key set when you select the keyboard only controls at the start.

Bump Set Spike is a budget game of reflexes which compares favourably with some of the Imagine Konami titles. My only reservation is there is a way to play it so you always win - which I discovered after an hour or so. A definite drawback.

Above average budget title. Matches up favourably with some of the full-price imagine Konami conversions.
