Pro Tennis Volley is a tennis target shooting game released by Neon Play

With Wimbledon here we are all looking towards playing a little tennis ourselves, and for most of us who are poor at the real world version we look for games to fill that need, and up pops Pro Tennis Volley to help.

The game allows you to play a solo game of tennis, with a machine firing the balls and you need to hit the ball back over the next and onto a target area, getting points for the closeness to the centre of the target.

The game offers a tutorial to get you started and to learn the controls.

The game has three modes available:

  • 3 Lives – Double fault and lose a life, all three lives gone and game over.
  • Super Pro – Miss the target with three balls and it is game over.
  • Multi-Ball – 50 balls and a moving target.

The modes with lives do have the odd extra life targets appear to allow you to regain lives if you hit the special target.

The game is controlled by dragging the racket with your finger, getting the right speed and direction is vital to hit the target on the ground.

The graphics are good, with the racket and court nicely drawn, and the sound are fair, the music is a little repetitive.

On the upside:

  • Fun gameplay
  • Easy to play, difficult to master.

On the downside:

  • A few too many in game adverts for their other software titles.
  • Not much differences in the game mode, just hitting those targets for points.

Overall, this is a good game and will fulfil some of your tennis fix. I personally felt the game was a little to repetitive to have any real longevity past wimbledon session. The game give the feel of a mini-game rather than a full title, which is a shame because it plays very well. There are alternative tennis games on iOS that give a real game of tennis, and if you as looking for it here you will be disappointed. If you want a fun target shooting game, then Pro Tennis Volley will fulfil that need well.
