Description: Compete for glory in a retro-future world ruled by rogue AI. Equipped with only a paddle and your own skill do you have what it takes to defeat your opponents and earn your freedom?

HoloBall plunges players into an action-sports arcade arena inspired by one of the most iconic games of all time. Use your paddles to hit, smash and curve the HoloBall past your opponent to score. Learn and master skillshots to outmatch your increasingly difficult opponents.

Review: The game is set in a Tron style retro-future the game is basic looking, but it’s soft neon glowing lines does make the game feel more immersive and believable. While there is a leaderboard there is sadly no online multiplayer which is a shame, but the once player mode is sure to keep you amused for some time. Be warned, this is a very physical game the lures you into thinking it is easy, but things will soon get much harder and you will be zooming about your play like a professional squash player. The good news is the game is really responsive and the gameplay was super smooth. While I think it could have done with an online multiplay mode it is still a good game to play on your own and get fit. I think if you use this game often to have fun and get fit you will get good value for money from it, but if you are only going to play it once you might not. So download it for sure, but try and eke out as much fun with it as you can (or just wait for a sale). At least it is cheaper than the PSVR version!
