Volly-Bounce is an Adobe Flash online multiplayer video game developed by Jacob Grahn that was released on 2007-11-21.

Gameplay

Volly-Bounce Gameplay

Two users in a match. While the balls are multi-colored, they don't affect scores.

Volly-Bounce is an online game where players can create their own account or use their Platform Racing 2 login to chat, send private messages, or challenge one another to a match. 

Once accepted, each player controls half of a court and have one circular paddle, with the goal being to hit more balls over to the other's side and have them fall off the court.

Shut Down

On 2015-09-09, Jiggmin officially announced he would be dropping support for Volly-Bounce, along with other multiplayer games besides Platform Racing 2, although the game had been down for several months at that point. He stated: "Managing [the games'] servers is another time drain. They'll need to be streamlined or removed. I plan to keep PR2 running at least until PR4 is out, though."[1] The announcement also coincided with the launch of his new forum, FreeGoose.

There have been no fan projects to attempt and revive the game or set up private servers, leaving it unplayable.

Trivia

  • This was the first online game by Jiggmin that saved account data to a server and required a password to access it.
    • Additionally, this was the first game to feature moderators and private messages.
  • The player list shows each user's PING to the server, the only one of Jiggmin's games to do so.
  • Despite its name, "Flag as Abusive" doesn't do anything.
  • Players are given the following titles when they reach a certain rank:
    • Puppy (1-5)
    • Beginner (6-10)
    • Moderate (11-25)
    • Shark (26-50)
    • Master (51+)
  • Volly-Bounce and Platform Racing 2 accounts were initially linked so that signing up on one game created one on the other, though this feature was removed sometime between 2011 and 2012.
  • The game's experience system isn't public, giving players no indication of how close they are to ranking up.
  • The server list having a drop-down menu hints that additional servers were planned in case the game became popular.
  • This game was originally available on Newgrounds, though an unknown bug caused only a black screen to display a couple years after its release, leading it to be removed. The broken file can still be accessed, however.
    • This also makes it the only game of Jiggmin's to get blammed on the site.[2]
