IT'S A WHOLE NEW BALL GAME Rebound is the newest video skill game from Atari that features the kind of appealing action you've come to expect from the leader in innovative video games. In fact, Rebound is faster, more fun and potentially more profitable than any video game you've seen yet… from anyone.

JUST LIKE REAL VOLLEYBALL Rebound is a game of skill for all ages. Everyone loves a fast game of volleyball, and that's exactly how Rebound is played. The game is designed for two players, with each player represented on the video screen by a horizontal bar. The objective is to hit the ball over the electronic net and past the opponent. Serve… a quick return up and over the net… back and forth, faster and faster until one opponent misses and a point is scored.
With practice, a player can even angle the degree of return. And, just like real volleyball, each player has three chances to return the ball on each volley. The action is highlighted by an audio "bleep" each time the ball is hit, adding to the overall action and excitement.

COLORFUL, CONTEMPORARY PACKAGING Rebound features an individually styled cabinet with colorful, modern graphics. It is designed to fit any type of location, from a neighborhood tavern to fine shops and restaurants. In fact, Rebound can be placed anywhere people gather.

HIGH-PROFIT POTENTIAL Rebound has been engineered and tested, inside and out, for maximum player appeal. The video screen is always in motion to attract the first-time player. And, the magnetic action of Rebound assures replay after replay. In short, Rebound is designed to return maximum profits in the shortest period of time.

OWNER-ADJUSTABLE Length of game can be varied on-site by a simple adjustment to a maximum score of 11 or 15 points per game, play gan also be varied to 1 or 2 games per 25¢.

EASY, FAST SERVICE All major components are easily reached through a front panel to facilitate routine service and maintenance. The cash box is front-panel mounted and accessible only with a special key, assuring maximum security.

SPACE-AGE RELIABILITY Rebound is all solid-state and features the exclusive Dura-Stress computer designed by Atari. All major components are fully tested to Military Specifications 883 for exceptional reliability and long service life. A one-year warranty is offered on the computer board with a 30-day warranty on the video display unit.

REBOUND… another innovation from Atari, the leader in video skill games.

Ursprünglich sollte das Spiel schlicht Volleyball heißen, das Kürzel VB ist auf den Platinen auch eingeätzt.

Es ist unter dem Titel Volleyball auch als Umrüstsatz für Dr. Pong und Puppy Pong erhältlich.

Kee Games brachte das Spiel als Lizenznachbau einen Monat später als Spike auf den Markt.
