Super Dodge Ball

Game: Super Dodge Ball (The Japanese version is called: Nekketsu Kōkō Dodgeball Bu).

Year: 1987

System: Wii U

What kind of party game?

Its a 2 player, Dodge Ball game.

Was it fun?

Not really, it was slow and the controls didn’t make a ton of sense.

Are there any similar games?

Its one of the first (or maybe the first) Dodge Ball games so the game created a new genre or at the very least, a new Sub-Genre.

Would you play it again?

I would prefer not to, there was just nothing fun about the game.

Any complaints?

Its slow and I didn’t fully understand the controls. My friend and I played against one another. I feel like it was slightly even in gameplay but he ended up destroying me in the final game, I think the final score was 1-5. Meaning that I only took out one of his players and he took out all of mine.

How would you rate it and why?


Its not the worst game that I have played, its just hard to go back to old NES games. Some people would argue and say NES games are still great but I feel like Nostalgia is playing a large role in that. NES was revolutionary but unless you grew up with one (I didn’t), its hard to go back to.
