"Tennis" or "Monkey Tennis"

Hi,

Morgan here, aka Sauce Digital/SDGames. First off, exclusive news (well apart from AppDope.com obviously) ....... my next game is going to be a touch controlled 3D Tennis game.

Im midway through the game engine, but though I would get a general feel for how you guys feel about whether to keep it a straight tennis game, or theme it around Monkeys.

vote away, and please leave any other thoughts you might have.

cheers

Morgan

Definitely Monkey Tennis. Sounds more unique and memorable.

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.

Yeah, the reason i didnt just go for that is i was wondering if it would put of sports game fans, who might not think it has the sporting playability.

Well the Monkey version would look more appealing, and with recent releases, the iPod touch doesn't seem read for full-on sports games.

As a sports game fan, monkey-themed tennis probably wouldn't go for me. But the number of casual game fans who might pick it up because of the monkey aspect probably far outweighs the number of sports gamers looking for an iPod/iPhone tennis game...

I think Monkey Tennis is the better pick, but don't name it that. It needs a better name. Maybe Chimp Swinger or something.

Upcoming Games: CJS2, Racing Apex, High Strangeness, Dino Run, Super Feed Me, Mimeo and the Kleptopus King, Loot, Run Run Dash, Pogo Rampage, Burrito Bison, Star Saver, Pocket Cars, Rock Rider, THEM, Prince of Europa, Epic Dive, One Tap Hero
