I tried to play with mouse. It's very difficult to play cross court shots.
With keyboard, it's ok. But I believe the shots playing is not that realistic. e.g. when the player has to run far right and play a shot, in reality it's very tough to put the ball cross court towards the left. But the game makes it easy. Ideally, the angle of the ball should change dynamically depending on where the ball the hits the racket, the position of the player, running, etc. When this is implemented, I'll be able to put the ball cross court by placing myself strategically. You see what I mean? There are a few flash tennis games on the web that do this quite nicely...

This is a good game. If only the shot playing is more realistic, it would've been a great game!

Hello,

It's a pleasant idea, and I already thought about it several times.
But I think it's a too hard concept for novice players, and actually, that's not so realistic.
In real life, the ball position from your body will have influence on the direction you can easily shot it, but usually, any good position will let you send the ball anywhere you want.

With my average skills, on a real court, I can put (almost) easily the ball cross court on my fore hand, running in the opposite direction (but on my back hand, it's a lot more tricky :p ).

Anyway, it's possible I'll conduct some gameplay tests in next versions, to propose different handling of your player, as an option.

Thanks for your comment !

while you keep pressed down "shift" and "control", press the left or right arrow key to send the ball to the left, or the right.
