A single player mode would be a great update to this ;)
Sunset Shockwave 17
Sunset Shockwave 17
(Version 1.1B0 - 12 April 2017)
The rise of the 80s was marked with the release of the Shockwave Headgear - an affordable helmet which allows users to convert brain waves into kinetic forces and even be able to perform telekinesis! Besides all the useful functions, the true potential of headgear comes from it's amazing performance on leisure and sports.
Join superstar beach models - 'Super Speedo' and 'Bikini Boss' - on a match of the popular sport Shockwave Volleyball - where you control the ball with the power of your mind!
- Grab a friend and play a local match of Shockwave Volleyball! Use your Shockwave Headgear to create kinetic waves that allow you to catch any ball in mid-air! Once the ball hits the ground of the opponent, it's a point score for you!
- Match ends when one either of the players reaches 8 points. There's no match points or advantage points, so make sure you never leave your guard down.
- Avoid overheating your headgear! After charging shockwaves, your headgear will temporary overheat, requiring a small cooldown to cool after each use.
- The faster you unleash your brain power, the harder and faster you launch the ball! Be as fast as you can to get a forceful advantage!
For keyboard controls, each player shares a side of the keyboard. One player uses the WASD keys while the other uses Arrow Keys.

While it might be tempting to jump straight into a match of Shockwave Volleyball right here on itch.io, the game might present some performance and physics issues while playing in the browser.
We recommend downloading the desktop version for the best experience and performance, as well as for playing the game on higher resolutions.
