Super good game! Had a lot of fun with this with a couple of gamepads. The powershots are a fun tactical dynamic and I like how the aiming happens as a result of the player's position than an additional input.
◄►▲▼ - Move
Z - Swing
X - Power Shot
Hitting the ball when it is directly in front of you will return in the direction it came from. Standing to the left or right of the ball when hitting it will angle your shot. The further to the side of the ball you are the more angle your shot will have.
Whenever you return the ball during a rally you will build up power. You can do a power shot anytime you have power in your meter. The more it builds up the faster your shot will be.

I didn't read the instructions lol, so it took me a while to figure out how to aim, but once I got it, it was a lot of fun.
It would be helpful if there was a visual indicator on each player when they had full power meter, I found it hard to look at both power meters while focusing on the game.
Is there any way to actually change the settings in the main menu?
Saw this on Twitter, holy crap this is amazing. I absolutely love the asthetic. Did you create your own 3d renderer for pico-8
Yeah, this game actually came about because I was playing with 3D rendering in Pico-8 and was looking for something to do with it. The characters are done as a combination of 3D models and 2D sprites to retain the retro sprite look.
Please tell me I'm not the only one that lost 9 games continuously...
A pretty well made tennis game. No bugs, no issues, and a decent aesthetic style. If I was into tennis, I might enjoy this more. To whichever hipster who feels like playing an obscure, but nice looking tennis game, this is the one for you. Perhaps some music wouldn't go a miss, but other than that, pretty solid.
A technical notability would be the spinning tennis field rendered in 2D or 2.5D. However it's done, it looks good anyway. I hope to see this become a fun party game.
