This is the best volleyball game I have ever played. Sure it's the only one, but Kings of the Beach is very impressive in its own right. The sound is terrible (go to "Registration" to turn it off) and the graphics are average for the time, but the game play makes up for it. The game features very sophisticated aspects. One is the jumping time on spikes. If you jump early, your spike will go deep, even out of bounds. If you jump later, your player will spike the ball into the ground only a few feet away. The game is fun overall and can be played for a long time.

The controls are simple. Move around with the cursor keys, and use ' for bump, ; for set, and l for spike.
