Bug fixes and refinements
Ratings and ReviewsSee All
Way to improve the game could be to increase the amount of sets you play and how many games in each set. As I feel a minimum of 4 games in a set is too short.
But make this a feature you can turn on or off therefore it won’t have a negative impact on anyone. Also as I’m black I can only choose from one guy with long hair, which I understand as there isn’t many top black players.
Sometimes the controls are unresponsive as you get further into a competition.
There is a problem with the sound as after ads sometimes it just cuts off.
Ads after every game is too frequent would be good after each set.
At times you can hear the game in the background of an ad and if it’s the opponents serve then you’re gone go 15-0 down.
It take extremely long to rank up, and needs to change as players don’t lose ranking points if they don’t do as well as expected.
However it was very enjoyable to play when the controls are responding to input.
Still The Best Tennis Game for Smart Phone
I’ve been playing this game since 2013 and is still the best tennis game out there for smart phones. The players have different strengths and weaknesses, you can switch the controls from touch and swipe to my preferred d-pad arcade mode. Most importantly great game play.
Shame about the adverts which have need added the past few years and wish that Sega would create an update version, with new players upgrades. A legends one would be awesome! Becker, Aggasi, Graf, Seles, Muster, Martinez, Sampras, Federer, Nadal, Navratilova, Edberg, Guga, Hingis, Venus and Serena, Djokovic. Everyone! Even the magician Santoro!
Good game, BUT....
This is a good game with good feel for the ball, but for starters the people who developed it never watched a grand slam in their lives. In no Grand slam ever the seed no 5 would play seed no. one on the second round!!
Also a major flaw in the game is that when you play against players higher ranked than your player the controls become extremely difficult to manage and sometimes your player does not react accordingly. All in all a good game but the developers should really iron out the few remaining bugs, once that’s done this could a great game, for the time being the s just a good game
