Game is not Universal here in Australia, there is a separate iPhone version.

Framerate on the new iPad is pretty bad, the virtual stick controls are decent but the animation of your player feels quite laggy and janky.

Dissapointing.

Odd, when I bought it on the store there was a separate iPhone app and no + symbol on the iPad version. But when I look in my purchase list on my iPhone it appears there for download.

Seems to be retina res on the new pad. Like Nova 3, I'd gladly take the option to choose the original iPad res to have a smooth framerate. Player control is just too jumpy to be fun.

While the frame rate might be low, I don't think a better tennis game will be out on iOS for a long time.

Insta-buy.

Sega is getting keener on occupying the IOS market since mid last year!! Really hope that any Three Kingdoms titles of Sega such as "Sangokushi Taisen" can be ported to IOS in near future!!

Game Impressions

Poor frame rate all but ruins what is otherwise a solid and fun tennis game. Players drop frames of animation with greater regularity than I drop cash on the app store. This absolutely should not be happening on an iPad 2. Can't recommend this until it's fixed.

Even after a fresh reboot? If so, I'll hold off.
