Table Tennis Touch: Tips to have you swatting with the paddles
A battle for table world domination.
Table Tennis Touch is arguably the best ping pong game on Android and iPhone. Featuring some smooth physics, it gives you an authentic table tennis experience. Hold the paddle with your finger and fire away at the ball as it comes your way.
The feeling in the game is tight, and one-to-one, featuring beautifully placed sounds that replicate the real sport. The iconic snapping sound the ball makes when you hit the ball with the paddle is there in full effect and makes it feel like you're really playing.
You will be able to play in different challenges to lead to even more events. This is fun because you'll get a blend of different things, so you'll never know what awaits as you progress. You will need to medal these challenges to move on so warm-up that paddle. We give you a few tips you can jot down in your table tennis notes while you practice your swing with the other hand.
Work on your touch
It's easy to go hard and smack the ever-living daylight out of the ball in Table Tennis Touch. However, there are times where you do need to manage the power of your shots. Specifically, you may be faced with challenges that require you to be accurate.
Plus, it's just good to change pace sometimes. It's a great way to showcase your skills. Being able to consistently change your tune can seem impressive, especially early on in your mobile ping pong career (wow, you're catching on fast, aren't you?).
So just remember that it's wise to be buttery smooth with your shots. It will really come in handy on those challenges that need you to have precision. It's a balancing act, but try not to overthink it too much and you'll be smooth and accurate.
Practice your spin
Spin is one of the trickiest things to master in Table Tennis Touch. As challenging as it is early on, it can be really helpful when you need it. If you're new to table tennis and are unfamiliar with how spin works, it's basically just being able to cause the ball change direction.
When you hit the ball at a certain angle, it will bounce in a different direction as it bounces on the other side of the table. This is a great way to beat your opponents and catch them off guard. Not to mention, it's pretty satisfying to pull off considering the level of difficulty of it.
Not to mention that there may be some club challenges where you need to use spin to get your score up. So try and practice. A good way to do that is just by playing in some early matches and challenges and use those for training sessions after you've already completed them.
Master the tossing serve
There are two ways to perform a serve in the game. You do a typical serve which is a simple tap of the ball. It won't have much velocity, but it's a safe way to get the round started and get a flow going. The next serve is trickier, but it can come in handy.
It requires you to toss the ball up in the air. As it comes back down, you can hit it for a good, strong serve. The shot will be a lot more powerful. It may not always be a game-changer but it can throw your opponent off guard at times.
Again, same thing here as with spin; just practice in the earliest challenges which you can play more than once. Tossing serves have more power, and there's nothing wrong with putting a bit more emphasis in your serves, especially with basic ones being so light for the most part.
