Flyball is an arcade game released in 1979 by Forcefield in North America only; it is the company's third foray into video arcade games and would later become the inspiration for the company's Battlestar Baseball franchise several years later in 1988. A sequel was released in 1980 as Super Flyball and featured inproved graphics and sound.
The player simply uses a joystick to maneuver a ball across to a batter on the screen; once the single button on the control panel and the ball appears, the player must maneuver the ball as it moves towards the batter and must attempt to hit the rim of the bat.
