- Fun family friendly gameplay.
- Players can resume games if they exit the application.
- Simple and responsive control scheme.

While Volley is a lot of fun, the game price may seem a little steep. Especially when considering the amount of content offered to the player.

Volley is a quirky volleyball game where players take control of a small dome creature and must play against another similar creature. You will need to bounce the small ball off of your head to get it over the net and try to make your opponent miss.
Players control their dome by dragging a slider around on the left hand side of the screen. The ball’s angle will change according to where on your head it hits and if you jump to hit it in mid air by using the jump button. Like volleyball, you will need to attack and defend to score six points in order to win the game.
The visuals are very basic but backgrounds change in each level for some welcomed variation. The sound can get a bit annoying after a while and without the option to use your iPod, you might find yourself turning the sound off entirely. The game features one main mode with no leaderboard or highscore options but access to any previously played levels.
Volley is a smooth and challenging little title. The gameplay is thoroughly enjoyable and worth a look at if you enjoy volley ball type games. There are some minor limits to the game’s sound and its one main mode. But the high replay value and increasing difficulty will certainly give players a challenge in trying to play through the 16 different levels.

"Volley’s physics are excellent. This is a cute but repetitive game. It looks great and plays well … and it’s certainly fun."
"... it’s a cute and fun game to play."
"Volley boasts slick graphics and old school style sound effects, and challenging gameplay that should have you playing for hours at a time."
"Volley is good game play for those moments when you simply want to while away the time. So the next time boredom strikes, it’s serve, hit and volley!"
"It's so simple and quick that it gets addictive. When a game can last for 1 minute or 1 second, it keeps me coming. If you're looking for a casual game that you can quickly play in a 3 min break, try this. I won't stopuntil I defeat the last blob!"
Volley is a fast paced multi-touch ball game where you have to slide, jump, smash and trick to win against sixteen super-skilled opponents. Beat the opponent to reach the next level. The higher the levels the harder the opponents.
If you like SlimeVolley you will love Volley. What makes Volley different from the other Volleyball and SlimeVolley-Games on the AppStore is it's fine-grained collision detection, it's superior responsiveness, correct physics, a fast gameplay and the 16 levels with a well balanced AI for a rich gaming experience. And the best of all is the usage of Apple's multi-touch technology to move a player by sliding instead of pushing buttons.
