Advertising BlurbsThe Official Nintendo Player's Guide (1987):
BUMP, SET, & SPIKE
The serve comes low and fast. You run to the corner and dive for the ball. It's a great save! Your back man sets it up for the kill. Your crafty front three fake the spike, just barely dinking it over for the point. Classic moves, speed, strategy, this is volleyball at its finest.
GAME PLAY: The game takes plenty of practice and "VB" skills to master. Your server can serve it high or low to the right or left. You move your men into position to receive the ball with a set or a quick return. The set can be high or low to any front man you choose. Direct the kill shot fast and straight to the opening in your opponents' defense. When a low ball or a spike comes at you, send your front line up for a block. The computer has seven different international teams for play at various skill levels. Whether you are playing your friend or the crack team from the USSR, you'll find the challenge is nonstop.
