Single-player games include Impossible, a platformer that begins easy and gets progressively harder with ever-increasing heights, RPMs, and airtime challenges to test your ball skills.
Family fun in motion
Multiplayer Showdown is a race game that sets up face-to-face ball play. Party Time encourages four or more players to compete in silly challenges that will have your family and friends competing and laughing for hours.
Skyscraper and Sport Labs tap into both STEM and your competitive nature as precise airtime, height, speed, or catch force is recorded to better understand the physics of sports.

Answers from the community
Is it water proof or resistant?

The ball is listed as 'water resistant'('wipe it off and play on') by Play Impossible, but our compe The ball is listed as 'water resistant'('wipe it off and play on') by Play Impossible, but our competition volleyball listed the same way, water'resistent'. Our Play Impossible gameball has rolled into the water at the beach/lake MANY times without any issue. B/c this is the same material as a volleyball, I assume you wouldn't want to let the ball sit in the lake all day, or the leather material would become waterlogged. It's a $99 ball, so ours isn't used for play IN the pool, or IN the lake/ocean, but as I said, our gameball has rolled into the water repeatedly without any issue.
