The last game produced by INTV for the Intellivision, Spiker! Super Pro Volleyball follows the rules of real volleyball, as the object of the game is to hit the ball over the net and hope that the opposing team is unable to return the ball within three hits. The first team to 15 points with at least a two-point advantage wins the game. Best three out of five wins the match.
Offensively, you control sets, passes, spikes (including super spikes) and the speed as well as the direction of the serve. Defensively, you can execute digs, dives, and blocks. By using the numeric keypad, you can aim the ball at any of the various zones on either side of the net. While you only control one player, you can switch between players at any time. The players not under your control at any given time will play to the best of their abilities, depending on the skill level (1-6) you have chosen for them.
Two modes of volleyball are available: two-on-two outdoor and six-on-six indoor. Play the game against the computer or challenge a friend. Better yet, team up with a friend and try to beat the computer. In whichever mode you choose, a referee (or at least his whistle) is on hand to call four different violations: player touches net, player goes under net while diving, ball hits ground and serve touches net. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
