Bounces is a nice idea but, unfortunately, falls a little flat. There's just not enough depth to the game to keep any interest going.

The game is set in, apparently, a futuristic sports chamber, where two knights battle it out.

The knights - Ashley and Erik - are attached to what appears to be energy-sapping elastic bands which the combatants must fight against.

A ball drops into the chamber and bounces around. In their hands the knights carry "ball snatches", a stick-like weapon for catching and hitting the ball.

Basically, the game can be described as a sort of futuristic squash on elastic bands. Good fun, but overpriced.
