What's New in Version 1.2
iPhone 5 Screen Support
Tedious, frustrating, boring
Graphics are nice but the game is so tedious because 1) rallies go on forever as your opponent never makes a mistake and you stuggle to hit a winner because you can't hit wide. So after 2 games of constant boring rallies, you get frustrated. 2) the game doesn't save progress mid-match during the career mode. 3) volleys seem to end up always as lobs. Why is it so hard to make a good tennis game??
Spoiled by major bug
Could have been the perfect tennis game, but a bug causes shot gestures to be misinterpreted as move clicks, so your player ignores the ball and just runs across the court. You lose interest fast when a sports game has a bug that affects the outcome. Also, why no female players? Very strange decision.
Theron Tenniel is literally unbeatable! Every time I go to take a shot, my guy seems to run in the opposite direction, or all my shots seem to go out! It's impossible! Don't bother wasting your time on this game!
