The game features several game modes:
- Story: Single player with nine "dramatic sequences" set in a park.
- Speed Catch: Single player. Players catch balls thrown at them with increasing velocity, reaching speeds of over 240 km/h.
- Nine Trial: Up to four players. Each player is given a board with nine panels. The race is to see who can throw balls through all the panels the fastest.
- Bomber Catch: Up to four players. Players throw a bomb around, and the player holding the bomb when it explodes loses one heart.
- High Score: One to two players. Players continue throwing balls in order to get the highest score. A bonus is given for throwing and catching without dropping the ball.
- Free Play: One to two players. A practice mode where players simply throw the ball around.
Although Nintendo Life praised the presentation and controls, they otherwise felt that as a whole the game was shallow and repetitive. IGN called the story mode of the game "heartwarming and unique", but also noted the repetitive nature of the game. Wiiloveit.com thought much of the game, but the hefty price tag really got in the way of being able to recommend it strongly.
