Two can play on one iPad
The user interface was very easy to learn. Children can be playing in under 30 seconds without much guidance. The head-to-head feature is a nice addition for the application on an iPad--it allows two players to face off at opposite ends of the iPad and play each other (think of the old-style Pong games that used to be in bars and arcades long ago). The game's AI has a nice ramp up in difficulty. I have not tried the multi-player mode, where two licensed games connect wirelessly. I would recommend this game; if you let your children play it, don't blame me if you have trouble getting your iPad back from them!
Like the real thing
Especially when you get into some long volleys. Game play is extremely realistic, but the fact that you and your opponent are merely a paddle in space might give a weak first impression. Don't let this be a turn off. Ball comes off the paddle with very realistic spin and trajectory according to how you hit it. Against the better opponents, it's just like an intense game of ping pong.
Fun and challenging
Just got the app, the controls work well and it's very fun to play.
