Looks like a fun app with great graphics. Anyone try this one out yet?
Waiting to see what other say but it does look fun.
It's gotten a few good reviews. And a "Anyone who bought this please right a review." 3 star review .
arn of http://toucharcade.com said in the forums it has no sound and you don't really interact with the game with swings of the racket. It doesn't sound too fun, TBH.
Sad because it looks good, but it seems developers just want to rush their games out to make money.
omg, all the reviews on iTunes give it 5 stars...yet none of the people who reviewed it bought it.
what a super-noob review system apple has in place here....
Ok, trying to do my service to the readers at MR, I went ahead and threw away the 4.99 for Tennis Slam so I could inform others about the game. Now I mentioned throw away the 4.99, because thats basically what youll do if you want this game as youll probably never play beyond the first time.
The graphics are cute and crisp. There, now if that is worth 4.99 to ya, then you win. If you need more in a game, then continue reading and well see
The control is
.there is no control. You dont control your bean guys. They just move into position for you to swing at the ball. In fact, its kinda hard to even see where the ball is going when it comes to your side of the net because either your bean buddy or your own bean body get in the way and you gotta guess when its about time to swing.
How do you swing
well, you tap a little swing icon in the lower right corner. How responsive is it? eh
.it seems to swing when you tap the button, but there does seem to be a little element of delay. Minor though. You dont control your swing and where you want to place the ball
the ball placement, from what I gather, is where in the swing the racquet connects with the ball. Swing early, you shoot it left, swing late, you push it right (vise versa for lefties).
No sound in the game, but that will most likely come in an update
as we often see with all sorts of other apps (ex. Galcon). However, no amount of sound or sensory feedback to the user will make this game worth 4.99. You could just as easily by an app for free or .99 that requires you to tap the screen at particular intervals and get the same amount of enjoyment from it.
Final verdict: Pass on grass.
