Tennis In The Face is a physics based puzzle game that sadly doesn’t raise itself up enough to be a good console game, instead just being a mediocre mobile port.
Shockingly enough Tennis In The Face does actually contain a story. You play Pete, a tennis player formerly addicted to Explodz energy drink. After a rehab from it he comes back with a vengeance and a mission to take down the evil corporation putting it out to the masses. Using his tennis skills he then shoots balls at everyone standing in his way. Now that is when the story takes that odd turn.
At it’s core Tennis In The Face is a simple physics puzzle game. In fact the game play is similar to many like it though in the case of 10tons, makers of this game they have it down to a science. You have to line up a shot, including hitting or avoiding walls to take down enemies to move onto the next stage. The enemies do change and little things differ throughout the game but the simple premise is always the same.
While at first the game can be a fun challenge quickly you’ll see that what you start with is what your going to get throughout most the game. Later down enemies may take more than one hit to take down but don’t expect major game play changes.
Visually the game is bright and colorful however. It looks like the game could be a cartoon and the rag doll system as well works good with the look of the game. Sadly the controls leave some to be desired. I sometimes found that getting the perfect angle with an Xbox controller was harder than it needed to be. Clearly in that way the game shines on mobile platforms with a touch screen.
Overall Tennis In The Face isn’t bad but it won’t be a good lasting you a long time. It’s fun and offers a challenge for a few hours but it doesn’t have the lasting ability on consoles it may have on mobile platforms.
Score : 5/10
