Gameplay

The game has been described as "an inverted version of Pong",[2] in which players divert a "deadly chainsaw-bladed burster ball" with a paddle towards other players' platforms, which are made of balloons. Each player is armed with a bat which can be used to deflect the ball away from their balloons and towards their opponents.[3] There are also a host of power-ups that affect gameplay. The XBLA version uses ReplicaNet for online play.[4]

Airburst Extreme

An enhanced version was released in 2004 for Mac OS X as Airburst Extreme.

Characters

There are four playable characters, and six additional characters (four new protagonists and two new antagonists) in Airburst Extreme.
