Ever had a tennis ball delivered to your face? Not in the gentle way your local postal service worker might deliver a package, the kind of delivery where a professional aims for your head and gives it a good shot? We're glad you answered "no", because if it were true, you might end up like the villains in Tennis in the Face, a game of precision physics from 10tons. A little bit of aiming and a whole lot of ricocheting can go a long way. It's time to take down the corporate machine!
Explodz is an evil company with an evil product. Pete Pagassi is a former tennis pro whose life was ruined by their energy drink. Now he's out to stop them. By hitting everyone with tennis balls! Each stage is stocked with a handful of corporate clowns (sometimes literally) who stand and wait to get served. Tap and hold the screen to aim your shot, then release to let the ball fly. The goal is to knock everyone down, preferably by smacking them in the face, using as few shots as possible. Apart from the occasional exploding can of Explodz or a few movable/burstable environmental objects, your only weapon is a keen eye and the ability to predict trajectories. Think of it as sort of vertical billiards with evil businessmen and trendy hipsters getting smacked by tennis balls.
Tennis in the Face is a loudly entertaining sort of game. The premise alone is wacky, but when you encounter some of the enemy characters and watch them tumble like ragdolls from your well-placed serves, it gets even wackier. The level design is top-notch and keeps you motivated even when you fail. Tennis in the Face sports a number of unlockable achievements, high score-centric stages, and what is quite possibly the most entertaining developer credit roll in any mobile game. It really is furious tennis justice at its finest!
