Ever seen a clown throwing a bomb at a snowman on a desert island? Timber Tennis is like no sports game you’ve seen before.

This is an easy-to-play arcade game with a cheeky retro aesthetic. At first, you tap left or right to return the ball. But soon you’ll be timing taps to aim super-shots, dodging multiple balls and picking up coins. Gameplay is endless, as long as you don’t mess up a shot.

The courts are pleasingly random, ranging from playgrounds to funky disco scenes, and there are over 40 characters for you to unlock and level up. Our favourite? The sword-wielding kendo master, of course.

Timber Tennis has a wicked sense of humour, too: lose, and you leave a gravestone on the court. And the candy-coloured pixel art is complemented by a bouncy 8-bit soundtrack by Stalek, the composer who worked on the original Timberman.

Besides the ongoing competition against the computer, other challengers await online. Or – and this is a stroke of genius – why not play against a friend on the same device? Just grasp opposite ends of your iPhone or iPad and get serving.

Timber Tennis is an absolute smash, no matter how you play.
