More iPhone sports with Hit Tennis
| Hit Tennis

Next to driving games, finger-controlled sports have become something of an exciting problem for iPhone game developers – and none have entirely cracked it yet (though iBowl and iGolf probably came about as close as any so far).

The all-new Hit Tennis looks like it might have found a decent work around for iPhone sports, however, creating something of a 3D Pong-clone from the tennis scenario. Hitting the ball is as simple as swiping your finger across the screen, though looking at the gameplay video below, it seems to have a more accurate effect on your tennis bat than similar games have managed.

Of particular note, however, is the two-player game. Played on a single handset, Hit Tennis uses a split screen mode to create something of a two player, 3D Pong-style of game – quite ingenious, in terms of its 'cocktail cabinet' mechanics that undoubtedly make for a heated few minutes of simulated lawn action.

Live on the App Store now, Hit Tennis is labelled as free for a limited time (due to bump up to around £1.19 in a few days), so if iWimbledon is your bag smash the 'Buy It!' button to go and check it out.

Yes. Spanner's his real name, and he's already heard that joke you just thought of. Although Spanner's not very good, he's quite fast, and that seems to be enough to keep him in a regular supply of free games and away from the depressing world of real work.
