Ultra Hyperball puts the player hitting a ball as high as possible and winning medals for that...and it works, it's fun and addictive both on solo and on multiplayer. While it's not the most content-rich game out there, Ultra Hyperball succeeds at what it proposes when it comes to an intense, addictive experience.

I liked Ultra Hyperball, but your mileage may vary. The single player campaign can be completed in a couple of hours at most if you're trying to get silver or gold medals for all stages, but the Co-Op and Battle modes greatly increase the game's replay value. If you have 1-3 friends to join in on the activities, the mayhem that will follow will more than make this a good option for your collection. But if you don't like the repetitive nature of the game, then you certainly won't enjoy its dozens of stages.

Ultra Hyperball represents the variety of the eShop that Switch is quickly gaining: short, but highly playable and unique experiences that cost a fraction of the bigger games. Depth isn't the aim of the concept here; rather a highly accessible, if overly simplistic, game that truly shines in a group gathering.

The problem is that having the right group of people is more key to the experience than the game itself. With simplicity can come accessibility but it doesn't always equate to long-term challenge. At its relatively low price point, people will just need to decide whether it's something that looks appealing to eat up some hours on your own and with the other people you play with.
