    Just a quick heads up on what I saw via AppSniper just now.

    I think I'll buy it as an investment for the March updates. :)

    See: Prior Thread

    [App Store Link]

    ["Tie-Breaker"-Free Lite Edition]

    Read: Developer's explanation for graphics, etc here.

    Read: Here for Gameplay description.

    Do they all stand in that near default "T" pose or something?

    Personally the modelling turns me off buying this game, they look horrific.

    the math and such behind the programing makes the movements look smooth as butter

    Screenshots are just horrible. Even with the multiplayer I don't think it is worth it. There are way better tennis games out there to be spending your money on this.

    There is a Lite version called "Tie-Break edition" you can try.
    And to be honest, once you get past the scarecrow stance, its actually quite decent. Still nowhere near the pillar of excellence that is Virtua Tennis, but is alright. I'm playing it alot more than Touchsports Tennis and Ace Tennis Online.
    But boy oh boy, it took me a long time to get used to those models. Yuk :p but at least the developers have acknowledged our feedback and is working on it.

    I support ZenYes, to the fullest, give them time if you'd like or whatever, but this game was worth the $4.99, easily; and yes the character models do that in game when standing idle, but the dev plans to update graphics next month, for now though unless you use this app as a screensaver you won't notice that one "weird" pose muchsince you'll be controlling the slickest, most responsive and fast gameplay on iPotch!

    This game plays fast and smooth. The physics and framerate are outstanding. Once the graphics are touched up this will be the best tennis game in the AppStore.

    Yep :D
