Atari Video Computer System / 2600


The sun will set and eventually a shark fin appears, moving across the top of the screen if an active game is left idle long enough (picture #1). Note that in B&W mode itís not visible.  {Bob Polaro}

Sometimes you can serve far enough out of bounds that it appears the ball actually bounces on the ocean!  {Scott Stilphen}

Thereís an area between the players, slightly wider than the ball, that neither one can reach.  This is most noticeable when serving, as sometimes the ball will curve right into this spot.

Although itís hard to see, the ball is actually comprised of two colors Ė the ball is brown, except for the top and bottom edges, which are purple.

BUG: The manual states that you must win by at least 2 points, but play will stop when one team reaches 20 points.  {Scott Stilphen}

FRYING: Hold FIRE button and fry until you see five ď0Ēís at the bottom of the screen, no sun, and the game starts automatically (picture #2).  There wonít be any waves (in the ocean).  The sun will appear after about 30 seconds, and will never set.  Also, the shark fin wonít appear. {Scott Stilphen}
