RealSports Volleyball is a sports video game for the Atari 2600, released in 1982 as part of Atari’s RealSports series. The game features a two-dimensional representation of beach volleyball and can be played in both single-player and two-player modes.
In RealSports Volleyball, players control a team of two volleyball players on a sandy beach court. The objective is to score points by hitting the ball over the net and making it land in the opponent’s court, or by forcing the opponent to make a mistake such as hitting the ball out of bounds or failing to return it. The game follows standard volleyball rules, with each team allowed up to three touches before they must send the ball over the net.
The game allows players to serve, bump, set, and spike the ball using the Atari 2600 joystick controller. Players can move their characters horizontally and vertically on the screen and use the joystick’s fire button to perform different actions, such as serving and spiking.
RealSports Volleyball offers a simple yet enjoyable representation of the sport for the Atari 2600 platform. Its straightforward gameplay and accessible controls make it suitable for players of all ages and skill levels who are looking for a fun and competitive sports gaming experience.
