Official synopsis

"In Heatseeker, the ball will automatically seek the opposing net once it's hit. But, make sure you don't miss the goal! If the ball hits the backboard, it will fire back toward your goal. Make sure to think fast, because every time the ball is touched by a player or a backboard, it gains speed! First team to seven goals wins."
