HOW TO PLAY [ screen-shot of in-game screen, pointing to "Point", "Player", and "Mark" ] Hitting the ball When the ball is in play, an "X" will appear on the ground. This shows you where the ball is going to land. To hit the ball, go to the mark and press the A Button when the ball gets to you. Remember that in beach volleyball, the ball can be only be hit up to 3 times on each side. The first hit will always be a "bump". The second hit will usually be a "set". And the third hit will hopefully get the ball over the net (spike it if you can!) To do a spike, use the B Button to jump into the air, then hit the ball with the A Button. As on a serve, you can control the direction of the spike with the + Control Pad. To do a SUPER SPIKE, after you jump, press the B Button 3 or more times while you are in the air. If you do this correctly, your hand will begin to glow. Then hit the ball with the A Button and KABOOOM! The timing of a SUPER SPIKE is a bit tricky, but well worth the time needed to perfect it. 8 ---------- Serving To toss the ball, press the A Button. To hit the ball, press the A Button again when the ball is within reach. To do a jump serve, press the B Button to jump after you toss the ball (don't forget to press the A Button again to hit it!) You can also control the depth and direction of the serve by using the + Control Pad when you hit the ball. Practice makes perfect! Blocking In order to block a spike, you must get your player right next to the net where the spike is about to occur, then press the B Button to jump. It is even possible to block a SUPER SPIKE if you're quick enough. Just press the B Button as fast as you can while you're in the air! Diving Shot (Dig) If you aren't close enough to the ball when you try to hit it, your player will automatically dive for the ball. Tips The key to Super Spike V'Ball is practice. When just starting out, play a few games in the EXERCISE mode to get the feel of the game. Teamwork is also very important. Work with your partner. Being a "ball hog" will often result in losing a point. 9 ---------- 4. INTRODUCING THE PLAYERS GEORGE & MURPHY George and Murphy were the champions last year! They are very well balanced players. When just starting out, this is the easiest team to use. [ screen-shot of George and Murphy team select ] AL & JOHN Former soldiers, Al and John have a lot of power, but have poor defensive techniques and are pretty slow. If you like to use the "SUPER SPIKE" often, this is the team to play with. [ screen-shot of Al and John team select ] BILLY & JIMMY Billy and Jimmy have been trained extensively in the martial arts. Their defense is superb. They do have a weak spot though - poor spiking power. Use them for a great defense against teams that spike often. [ screen-shot of Billy and Jimmy team select ] ED & MICHAEL Ed and Michael are the quickest players on the V'ball court. Their hitting power is average. Choose them if you're having trouble getting to your opponents shots. 10 ---------- (this is warning not to use on projection TVs) 11 ---------- (this is the 90 day limited warranty) 12 ---------- (page 13 and inside back cover are blank) ----------
