Game Information

Available on:PlayStation 4Dec 9, 2014

Developer: 10tons Entertainment

Genre: Puzzle

As you might guess from the title, Tennis in the Face isn’t a very serious game. Nor a tennis game, really. Instead it’s more about smashing furious tennis serves at creepy clowns, corrupt riot police, mad scientists and a couple of other worthy targets of some tough tennis street justice.

For the price of £3.99 Tennis In The Face is a decent little game, and if you're into the genre then it is worth picking up. It provides enough entertainment and while it won't be considered a classic it scratches the itch when you want to play something for a couple of minutes. It does get repetitive if you play too many levels at once, and some levels do just need luck more than anything to complete. Overall though Tennis In The Face is a fun little game.

For a game named Tennis in the Face, this curious new indie from Finnish outfit 10tons is delightfully inoffensive. Outside of its outlandish energy drink-inspired storyline, this is a straightforward arcade game which revels in the base appeal of hitting people with balls. Lively presentation belies comatose gameplay, but its simplicity serves as a solid palette cleanser between longer gaming rallies.

There are only a handful of enemies you'll encounter throughout the game, and some more variety would have been nice.

You'll only occasionally feel like luck is involved and your reward for a skilful shot is some satisfying sound effects and rag-doll physics. Ultimately, it's an average mobile port and an easy completion. It would pass the time adequately enough while downloading the latest patch to your AAA title of choice. Beyond that, it's unlikely to hold your attention for long.
