Thanks. Tube tennis was my attempt to see the fastest I could put together an iphone game that I still wanted to put my name on. It actually really surprised me by debuting in the top 97 in board games when it came out, then fell off the charts and into oblivion. So I figured I'd try one last effort to get people interested in it.

If you check out my most viewed youtube videos on the same channel, I have one where I put together a 2D game on the fly in about 20 minutes. Video game programming improv if you will.

I must say, both control methods are really spot-on. Good job with this one.

I certainly appreciate the offer. I've tried these things in the past with others and when money's involved, things get a little touchy on how to share the proceeds. Plus this game hasn't made all that much money as of now, so I'd feel bad taking your time on it. Lastly, it supports background music from ipod or pandora, so I figured the user would run it against their own tracks.

As an amateur guitarist, i've added a few tracks to some of my own games, but I was never able to settle on anything I like lol.

I do it for free, as long as I get credits. I'm not talking big big stuff, just a simple loop.
