Ocean is more known for its platform games often tied to a movie license and arcade games ports but Beach Volley is an original creation.

The gameplay of this game is very arcade and like most of the sport games at the time (and now), you'll quickly find the winning move which will allow you to win every match.

But it doesn't mean that the game isn't fun, not at all. First, the graphics are beautiful (just take a look at the screenshot to be convinced).  Next, the 1-player story mode is quite fun with very funny cutscenes between matches. Latsly, there is a 2-player mode to compete with a friend.

One last thing, if you like the design of this game as much as I do, I recommend you to play Ivanhoe (I'll try to add a profile for this game soon) also on the Amiga.
