Powerball, called Wrestleball (レッスルボール) in Japan, is a 1991 sports game for the Sega Mega Drive by Namco. The game is a cross between handegg and football, where the goal is to either throw or kick the ball into the opponent's goal.

The Japanese cover artwork was drawn by manga artist Kouichi Tokita.[5]
