Summer Volley is a one-on-one volleyball game featuring crabs. The game is played from a fixed screen side view perspective and the player uses four buttons to control his crab: two for moving left and right and the other two for doing high and low jumps. Moving when hitting the ball gives more power to the shot. The game consists of a tournament where ten opponents (or less, depending on version) have to be beaten in order. The player who first scores three points wins a game.
