HD Gameplay Trailer (iPad 2):

Note:

First 15.Minutes of Gameplay. After reading the iTunes Store Page for this Game i thought that it would be just another Tennis Game but soon after i did realize that the Control System was really working and the Tutorial pretty much showed me everything i should know the Fun started and since the Games does even have some kind of Tennis Story were you are trying to live the Dream of your Dad and your own Life i was really impressed.

So far the only Change i would have done would be the Title Screen since it doesn`t really fit into the hole Comic-Tennis-Dream-Adventure. It would have been a lot better if they had used one of the Comic Pages for the Title Screen since it would have fit much more into the Game instead of those Render-Puppets.

I bought the game last night after reading this thread.

I'm a bit disappointed, as the game have a IMO serious flaw:
You can't control the speed of the ball when you hit it, and even the direction when you hit the ball is not very precise at all.

I guess with an update the games detection of where you try to place the ball can be corrected, which is sorely needed, but I think it will be much harder for the Devs to make the game work with a way for the player to control how hard he hit the ball.

I probably had too high expectations, since the game is an okay game in it's own right, I've just been searching high and low after a good and somewhat "realistic" tennis game on the AppStore. This wasn't it, but it's a fun, if a bit underwhelming game.

I think this game is fantastic and is easily one of the best tennis games in the store !!!
Silky smooth gameplay and polished with great controls. The visuals are great and the characters have a lot of style.
Graphically, the game is impressive, with real life animations & physics, 11 beautifully detailed stadiums and a very interesting comic book with storyline !!
This is an easy recommend for me as the best tennis game for iPad !!!!

ByteBrain: Thanks for the feedback, the accuracy of the direction of the shot depends on how close you swipe from the position of the player. The feedback on force of the shot is noted and we will try to work on it in our update. Cheers
