DescriptionSubmit Description
If only all sports games were this simple yet fun to play! Like Activision’s other sports entries Ice Hockey and Boxing, Tennis is as exciting as a sports game can get on the 2600, especially when played against a buddy rather than the computer. The intuitive gameplay allows you to hit the ball at many angles, depending on where on your racket you hit the ball. The game is scored just like real tennis, meaning a set between two good players can be extremely competitive and last quite a while if the score is continually tied up at "deuce." Like many Activision titles, Tennis plays at a fevered pace. Hey, it may not be Wimbledon, but it’s still a quick fix for tennis fans! (Contributed by Lord Helmet)
