WHAT THEY SAY...
"Rebound Rivals is like Pong on Acid; While it is the typical “you move an object to deflect a ball into targets” scenario, Rebound Rivals turns it on it’s head. ... It’s like cartoon full-contact racquetball; the pace is quick and the jostling is frantic."
"Rebound Rivals is an arcade game where the goal is to defeat your opponent by hitting and destroying objects in the field of play. But not end here, because it exceeds the levels, you unlock the fun mini-games: basketball, volleyball, pinball and more."

A challenging pick-up-and-play game.
This game is a bit challenging. It takes a while to get used to the controls, and get the hang of how to play it. As a result, to be completely honest I did not enjoy this game when I first started playing. The controls unique, and it was challenging to play even on the "easy" mode. The reason I mention that in an otherwise positive review is that I want to warn other people not to give up on this game too fast. Stick with it, and you'll soon love it. The graphics and sounds are fantastic, so I continued playing ... and I am REALLY glad that I did. After you spend a bit of time playing this game, you start to unlock other playing fields, and other mini-games. The other playing fields are gorgeous, and the mini-games are an absolute blast. The "key" is being able to predict where the ball is going to end up, and it's all based on the angles just like playing billiards. If you can predict where the ball will end up, you can get there faster than the AI opponent and nudge him out of the way. All in all, a great game. Highly recommended.
What A Blast!!
One of the more enjoyable games I've played in a while. I wasn't sure what to expect, but the physics are good, the environments are rendered well, and the gameplay is really engaging. It's basically a battle to keep the little ball in your "possession" (read: same color as you due to touching it most recently) and knocking out the most objects while preventing your opponent from possessing the ball while it is knocking out objects. You basically fight to box your opponent out of range of the ball while redirecting it to hit the objects. Tough to explain, but simple to play. I'm pretty sure I'll be playing this one for a while. Well done!
this game is loaded with polish!
I love the ability to customize your character with all the different faces and colors. The mini games are really fun, frustrating as heck, but fun. They aren't frustrating because the controls are bad, but just because the AI is really hard. The variation is good, and the graphics are beautiful. If you like cute characters, customization, and breakout, get this now!
