What's New in Version 1.2
iPhone 5 Screen Support
This game could be so much better! Players almost never hit a ball out and never hit one into the net. My player often slices the ball when I'm clearly swiping for a topspin shot BUT the biggest bugbear is the inability to perform a lob shot. Even though the function is there to perform one, whenever in try it the game performs a topspin or slice no matter how cleanly I make the swipe motion. It makes it much harder to beat the best players when they come to the net. Also you can't accurately hit the ball to the corners because the swipe controls are very vague. This game needs much more precise controls. Very frustrating!
Won't save games
Tennis doesn't appear to be the best game to adapt to an ipad but this has kept me interested. It is easy against the players ranked below 30 (you shouldn't lose a single game) but does get tough if you're in a Grand Slam.
I i am up to number 12 and drew the number 2 in the first round of the Aussie Open. A gruelling game started and two sets took hour. My hand ached from playing. The game said it was saving. It didn't and I must start again. It has never saved mid game but this specifically said it had. Annoying
Die Tenniel, Die!
Fantastic game - once you ditch the swipe controls in favour of a game pad. I thought it was glitchy at first, but now I'm a regular player I realise I was just rubbish.
If one thing made this game better it would be the removal of professional irritant Theron Tenniel. I know he's supposed to be your "big rival", but he's more slappable than Link's Navi and clearly doping!
