I don’t need to tell you how good Tennis Champs Returns (Free) is, as our superlative review and subsequent Game of the Week award emphasise how the industry veterans at Uprising Games managed to create one of the best racket sport simulators on any platform, which is highly likely to be omnipresent on many Best of 2016 lists come December. However, while those of us lucky to be within the walled garden (or is it court?) of the iOS ecosystem, our friends with Android devices haven’t had the fortune to rally on their phones, at least up to now. Today, the developers have released Tennis Champs Returns on Android, and with a 75% off launch sale is an essential purchase, especially for anyone who hasn’t yet played the best tennis game of the year.
Tennis Champs Returns works so well primarily because the controls manage to circumvent the barrier you’d typically expect from such a sports title through being extremely responsive, and also changing dynamically depending on the shot which is to be played. The way Tennis Champs Returns takes over the movement of the player at a certain proximity to the ball allows you to be free to aim where you’d like to hit your return, and even if it takes a while to become truly natural, it means you’re not encumbered with buttons and commands that would get too frantic, especially on a touchscreen device. With a fully fledged career campaign, as well as a whole host of challenges and modes to partake in, I’d implore any Android users to download the game from the Google Play store and take advantage of this sale, and also any iOS gamers who may have missed the initial release to serve up Tennis Champs Returns as well.
