Why the f**k would you make us pay for your stupid games
This is a great game! Xbox One S controller using bluetooth to pc works perfectly. One problem is that when the second player has a controller (maybe its the same for mouse when second player) they can't go to the edge of the right. They get stopped and the ball can still go behind them. Also you can push the ball through the net and also push it through the other irraffes neck or yours. Overall great game
looks fun but after i press single player, the screen stays blue. :(
not working :(
I press play and i'm greeted with nothing but a light blue screen. Works for my friend though
Doesn't even work
really random game but I kinda like it! I would recommend putting it on indiemarket.net I think the community there would love it! :)
So fun for such a simple little game! I lost... but I had fun doing so!
Hey i just made a video on this with my friend, really enjoyed it, fun little game to play when you have friends round.
awesome game i lost every game lol

GIRAFFE VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENT
so i played it for 12 minutes and i will give it a 3 star i found this in the multiplayer section but when i played i expected someone to connect with me. Also, The bots were designed for practice but how can you practice when they are way too skilled, and finally THE CONTROLS sometimes you end up pressing the wrong button and then miss the ball and it's just wierd!
so the reason i would give it a three stars cuase I don't want to give it such a bad review no one plays i just want you to fix all of the problems to make it at least satisfactory for me..
Really fun but there's just a few things that I hope you add and or remove/fix
1. Please let the player on the right go all the way to the back end remove the invisible wall
2. Please add Local/(or/and non local) Online multiplayer for local and online you could let the players host the server's
3. Add an option to make your own hats and or customs for the costumes you could draw(using pixel art) over the body of the giraffe and for the hats/masks you would draw over the head
I love to play this game it's a great time waster and really lets you get distracted while you play other games. Something i think that needs to get added would be a campaign. What you would do would be as the giraffe you go around beating every animal in the exhibit and they would increase in skill level the more you play. Then once you beat the animals in the exhibit, you would move onto the next winning against different animals and once you beat that exhibit you could play as that animal and they would have different abilities. I really hope might take my ideas into consideration for future updates or versions.
Played with my daughters and had lots of fun and laughs.
7yo's comments: It's very very very funny because you can balance the ball on your head and then send it launching away. It's also funny because you're a giraffe, and it's funny at the end bit because you can just go up and down and up and down, and it's funny because you can pretend you're an elevator! I liked every single little bit of this game. I wouldn't change anything or add anything.
6yo's comments: I would change it to four players. So we could all play it together.
I don't know why but when ever I play two player, the arrow keys control both. Any solutions?
Isnt too fun
Giraffes Volleyball Championship 2016
i can't even join the game lol must be my laptop
This is an awesome game! It's a lot of fun and actually pretty hard!
Giraffe Volleyball Championship is a simple 2D physics game in which you embody a giraffe and battle it out to be the ultimate giraffe volleyball champion.
There are two ways to play the game, to play against the computer or to play against another player locally. You play on a volleyball court as a giraffe and the first to five points wins the game, you score a point by getting the ball to land on your opponent's side of the court. Here the game gives you the ability to move up, down, left and right to manoeuvre yourself around the court to block/hit the ball, you are also able to 'kick' the ball which essentially means to extend your neck quickly to hit the ball harder. Your head lags behind the body slightly so in order to hit the ball you need to plan ahead to position your head properly. The ball spawns alternatingly on each side of the court after each round.
Giraffes Volleyball Championship can only be explained as a casual challenge giraffe volleyball simulation game. It has many elements of a challenge game but is quite casual in its nature due to the fact that you're playing a giraffe, so whether you win or lose you still end up having a good time. The background music to the game has a chilled out feeling which further reinforces it being a more casual game. The sounds effects when hitting the ball or scoring a point, make the game feel very satisfying to play, the game continually rewards you for doing well. Additionally, the art style of the game is very simple and aesthetically pleasing, there are small masks/hats that the giraffes sometimes wear which is a cool little bonus that adds to the casual aspect of the game.
However, underneath this layer of casual aesthetics, there is still an aspect of challenge and competition. The way that the head moves around as it lags behind the body requires positioning to be able to position yourself correctly in order to hit the ball. Furthermore, the way that the giraffe is shaped is extremely awkward for volleyball, you find that if the ball falls behind you that it is difficult to get it back to moving forwards again as it hooks onto the back of your neck and is continually getting dragged backwards. The game always has to have a winner, it is impossible to have a tie as it is the first to five points, this encourages the competitive aspect the game even more. Therefore even though this is quite a casual game there are competitive and challenge aspects that make it feel satisfying when you do well and improve on the mechanics.
I just wanted to spend a second to mention the local multiplayer feature, so many games nowadays only have online multiplayer and local multiplayer seems to be dying out. I love the fact that this game has local multiplayer, the controls are simple and it brings another experience the ability to play this casual challenge game against your friends while they're sitting next to you. I grew up playing these fun casual competitive games against my brother and I think that it's important to consider these features.
Giraffes Volleyball Championship is a fun casual challenge game that you'll spend half your time laughing at the ridiculous moments and spend the other half of your time trying to master the controls for that sweet shot at victory. It's a game that is polished, feels good to play and knows its boundaries, I would love to see more features added onto the game but for now I'll just strive to be the ultimate giraffe volleyball champion.
Hello. Do you plan to add an online multiplayer mode?
Yo dude, love the game. We're having lots of fun with it. There's a problem for player two. The giraffe can't reach the right hand wall. It means they can't control the ball like player one.
I have this same problem on windows. I played this on a mac and don't remember having this problem. Otherwise, I love this game.
How do I play it?
I can download it, but I can't play it
