This is made by the Hopiko guys. I know these guys are talented and Pktball is a good game, but it just frustrates me. I don't understand how it works. My first game was terrible, and it still took 10 minutes to beat that score. And after almost 20 minutes I still don't understand how to be good at this game. Like I said it's absolutely not a bad game, but it's super hard to get into.

Wow this is really enjoyable. High score is 178 or thereabouts. Some of the "power-ups", like the banana ball, seem to hurt you FAR more than the opponent though!

Also,the game DESPERATELY needs a pause button. If I'm in the middle of a game and have to stop I basically lose that game (or you can try to quickly power off your device in between shots and it will pick up right where you left it; home button will not work).

It's kind of like the old game boy Tennis (the original) or Tennis Champs. If you slide your champ over to the ball you will return the ball, but if you flick your champ over and time it right so that the flick ends, and your finger is raised, as your champ is at the ball, they will do a cross-court shot. It sounds hard but after two games I could literally do it almost every time.

Apart from the fact that Laser Dog games are an insta download, this game is so INSANE GOOD.

4 player mode on the same device. That. Alone. makes it awesome already. Great partygame inside of an already great game!

About the controls, try to drag and release instead of just giving it a swipe. I've no problems with the controls at all.

My best game of the week so far, definately.

Guys, just download this gem.

I think Laser Dog is a little overhyped and I really didn't care for Hopiko but this? This game is fun as hell, hardly any ads, easy to learn, dif💩💩💩💩 if I hear that in one more game description I might die. After a couple rounds when it clicks it's just really fun. I only own an iPhone and that's it so playing split screen with multiple people on the same device seems just absurd to me. Haha, choice game though!
