Takes a little time to get used to the controls, but becomes second nature after 10 minutes. I wish there was a proper tournament mode. The tournament mode in it atm is just one single match where you set the players, the court, difficulty, game and set count. That's it. Still, at 59p it's well worth the money.

Does the player speed and ball speed change accordingly?

Other changes, or just minor tweaks? Looks like this was the main ostensible change.

Correct. as long as you get there on time to return the volley.

Can't see an option to revert back to the festive version. Mind you, I am so fed up with that version now (other than Anna's outfit ).

To control:
You tap anywhere on your side of the court and your character will run to that spot. You tilt your device forward/backward and left/right to determine where you want to return the ball. Eg. tilting back and left will aim to the left of the court by the net. Your character will automatically return the ball if they are close enough to do so. Easy and Medium have guides to show where you are aiming your return (Easy also shows where the optimum place for you to stand to return the ball).
