DESCRIPTION

Tennis in the Face is a hilarious bouncer-game where you save the city from the evil Explodz Inc. with your extraordinary tennis skills. Simply move your finger on the screen, observe the aiming line, and lift your finger to serve a furious tennis smash.

The ball bounces off walls and platforms and triggers Explodz-crates, ball tubes, and countless other objects. Your actions will set off chain reactions and you'll watch the events unfold while knocking out the enemies. The more enemies you knock out with a single serve, the higher your score!

Win levels to move to the next district and towards your ultimate goal: The destruction of Explodz mega-factory. Try to earn a crown from each level and challenge your friends on three different leaderboards.

Join ex-tennis-pro star Pete Pagassi in his quest to save the city from the grasp of Explodz!

This looks quite good and when the clowns get struck by a tennis ball their squeak is hilarious!

You can always count on 10tons to provide a quality, fun release. After initially having a "Damnit, it's like Stupid Zombies?" initial impression (from the Upcoming thread), I'm glad to say that Sanuku's video has piqued my interest all over again. (10) Tons of attitude!

Oh course there's also the satisfying guttural sounds the riot police make. Yet another selling feature
Getting tonight for sure!

Not sure I'm sold on this, but think I'll buy it after grabbing the fantastic King Oddball for free yesterday.

Superb game. A tried and tested formula that only 10tons could modify into their own monster leaving everything else in the dust. The physics are spot-on, the graphics are so crisp on an iPad retina display and it's just...as I said before...filled to the brim with attitude. Highly recommended.

Game Impressions

At first glance this is embarrassingly similar to Stupid Zombies. At subsequent glances impressions don't improve much. It's polished, and tight, and demoralizingly predictable.

If this was from a first-time developer, one could note promise, technical potential, and hope that with maturity they will produce something worthwhile; while this well-produced rehash could be put down as part of essential growing pains. From a developer responsible for such past iOS staples as Azkend, Dragon Portals, and Sparkle, this title can only be viewed as being highly disappointing, and yet another strike against their recently declining reputation.

I have played through the first three map sections and this is a nice game. It is very similar to the King Oddball game but with a slightly different game mechanic. I have played very similar IOS game to this before where you rely on rebounds and chain reactions to take out enemies. Of course, Angry Birds is a popular example. There is nothing astounding here, but the game is solid and offers excellent value.
