KTA Tennis X for Mac1.2.1

06 November 2006

Nintendo-like tennis game.

What is KTA Tennis X for Mac

KTA Tennis X is a fast action tennis game for Mac OS X, Windows, and Mac OS 7 - 9. Inspired by Nintendo's original Game Boy and Super NES tennis games, KTA Tennis aims to strike some fun into your computer.

The innovative mouse hitting method lets you walk independently of your hitting direction, letting natural movements of your mouse hit the ball. Using the mouse like this offers a level of control over your hits that was never before available in tennis games. Traditional keyboard control is turned on by default, though, to let you enjoy the game just like classic console games.

Version 1.2.1:

Not sure why you'd want to pay money for this when there's probably tons of flash games that are just as complex and lacking in graphics. A quick Google turned this up: http://www.gamedesign.jp/flash/tennis/tennis.html Which is more enjoyable and better looking -- and free.

It's a fun game, but it crashes many times and the sounds go off in the middle of a play (umpire screams "out" while the ball is thrown up for a serve or the audience cheers while the ball is travelling, etc.). Definitely not shareware material.

Great game! The "little" game to play at least once a day, to relax. Runs well on G5 with 10.4.1. Keep up the good work! Dreaming of Multiplayer game ... Please change the clay field colour :-) Thanks and cheers.

I played the beta versions for months, it's good fun now and then. But if you can't make it run smooth even on G3s you won't see a dime for the Shareware. I remember how well games like Rune could be played even on an iMac G3 400, so I don't quite see why a game with so simple graphics runs so badly. Or is it the AI that takes all the CPU away? I guess not cause this game not even runs smoothly on my Dual 1Ghz G4 (and is practically unplayable on my iMac DV 400). Make it run well at least on fast G3s and people will buy it.

I played the freeware version forever, and am rather sad that this has gone to shareware (as i rarely buy any of these lil' apps), but the additions are wonderful and expand the game's appeal. Very good stuff! I recommend everyone give this a try (and look for a copy of the freeware 1.0 version if you don't want to pay the $18)

Looks like a great game, but the areas of the tennis court seem a bit disproportional, as if they are stretched horizontally.

  To the person below struggling with the computer winning points when you return it's serve: you must let the ball bounce on your side of the court before returning serve. After you've made your first return, you can then start volleying the opponent's returns without the ball bouncing.

I think there is a glitch in the game, but it might just be my lack of tennis knowledge. Almost every time the computer serves to me, I return serve, but the point goes to the computer and he's back to serving. There isn't even enough time for him to return my return before the game has given him the point and gone on the next serve. Is there a rule that says I can't return a certain way, or need to return a certain way? If not, then the computer is just giving itself points off of rallies that don't even happen.

This is running nicely on my 733 MHz G4. A good, fun little game which is so much better now than it was in it's earliest incarnations that I hardly recognise it. I think that perhaps it could be a little harder in terms of the computer opponent - but, of course this is still only at version 0.79, so I hope to see even more improvements for the future. I didn't think much of this game when it first appeared, but it's really a pretty nice game now. Good job, develper.

I'd like to play this game but when I can get it to launch at all on my dual 1.42 G4 running OSX 10.3.4 I can only see the back of the bottom players foot. The funny thing is I actually won a set playing with invisible characters!

I'm tired of people insulting this game for no reason, so I'll err on the side of generosity as far as the numerical ratings. It is a great game, but the latest version seems somewhat flawed. The poster who said the stats are wrong is correct about that. I think the game is playing tiebreaks as first-to-6, but the correct rule is first-to-7. Also, the game stops responding entirely if you start a game and then immediately hit command-option-D to hide the Dock.

Another nice update, this gets a little more sophisticated with each version. Nice to see statistics, although I've noticed that they're not 100% accurate, ie they said after a match that I had got an ace when I hadn't, and also that the computer hadn't done a single double-fault when it had in fact done two. Still, at least it's there to be worked on. I also think that after playing the game for a week or two, the Professional difficulty is a tad too easy, maybe you could speed up the computer player, or make it more responsive to when you lob it. Or perhaps these could be things implemented into another, harder difficulty level if you're happy with the current one. Anyway, this is a good game, so keep it up.

Nice to see the more glaring errors in the last version have been addressed. As for the "unfairness" mentioned below, I had the same problem, thinking my timing was always right, but having persisted, I think a lot of the problem might have been my inadequacy. Still, maybe I'm wrong, but it doesn't seem to happen now. Nice job, look forward to the next version!

i think novice mode plays actually like pro mode. i put it up to pro and it was the same as novice, then i played on angry mode (middle difficulty) and it was easy to beat him. and yes, there should be a pause button

addicting but incredibly annoying and frustrating. your guy will swing the wrong way whenever you press swing on one side of where the ball bounces and then cross over (happens very frequently... about 50% of the time when the computer serves). your guy will also miss the ball for no apparent reason even when your timing is perfect. then sometimes the ball goes real hard or real far to one side and sometimes it doesn't. if you play this game, make sure you have something soft nearby to release some anger. and how about a pause button? In my opinion, it's not worth the download until the developer resolves these issues.

this game would be cool, but the computer F#@!ING cheats! 40% of the time i go to hit the ball I miss it! my guy will swing the wrong F!@#&*ING way! or otherwise the ball goes right through! and the computer can hit balls clearly out of his reach! and i'm talking about novice mode!!! sometimes i'll hit it hard without even pressing up! this game is a real piss-off! but addictive...

This has improved, and it's good fun. Just a few faults (if you'll pardon the pun) which it'd be nice to see ironed out: -Three set matches carry on into the third set even if the first two have been won by the same person (ie it's 2-0 on sets). -When chasing long shots towards the corners, the human player has the annoying habit of slowing down whilst running sideways (play for a while and you'll see what I mean). -Maybe it's just that I'm not that good, but the timing required to hit shots seems a shade inconsistent, as the human player seems to miss the ball on shots which I certainly felt I hit properly (again, this could be my incompetence, but play for a while and see if you can relate). Mostly, though, this is good fun, and a massive improvement. Nice work.

This game seems much improved since I last played. I like the fact that an actual serve has been added. I don't know exactly what it is, but it just seems much easier to play than it did in previous versions. I've had quite a bit of fun with this one.

There are quite a few comments here of people who haven't managed to play this game well. Skills? If you don't like the graphics, hang on, have you read the description? This game does *not* try to be as realistic as possible.... Well done, developer.

This game sucks. Graphics seems to come out from a bad Beavis And Butthead episode, the ball is impossible to catch. I no more like tennis, nor Virtua Tennis, neither Beavis And Butthead.

Well, I haven't played this game for a very long time, but I think there are pros and cons. I think the engine is pretty neat, once you get used to the timing and positioning required to hit the ball. The graphics are unfancy, which is nice for a change. There are a few flaws. The difficulty settings, for a start, seem glitchy. The default setting was Novice, which I played against, and found pretty difficult to score points against. Then I changed it to Dumb As A Rock, which meant that the computer player refused to hit the ball back. Then I changed back to Novice, and it was still refusing to return my services. Then I changed to Pro and it was difficult again (the same difficulty as Novice had been when I started up). I think more control is required over power and accuracy. Contrary to the previous reviewer, I found the mouse control too hard to get to grips with. How about the ability to assign shots of different power to different buttons, on the mouse or keyboard? I think the shot directions need revising too, as I found that sometimes I'd hold left and press space and my player would hit the ball right instead. It would be really nice to see a multiplayer mode using the left and right half of the keyboard, although how difficult it would be for the developer to incorporate this I don't know. Keep trying, good luck with future versions.

For those who are complaining about the difficulty, you might want to try out the mouse control instead of the keyboard. This gives the game a much more intuitive feel, and is really, much, much, easier to use.

Hi everyone, thanks for all the feedback, and please keep it coming. Honesty is best. So you know, KTA Tennis was developed in about 3 months for the uDevGame 2003 contest - this is just the last version I submitted before the contest deadline was up. I plan to keep improving the game, fixing up rough edges, improving graphics, gameplay, sound, etc., hopefully bringing it to 1.0 release sometime in Spring 2003. Please keep all your comments coming - you can email me at tennis@karlbecker.com if you'd like, also. Thanks, Karl

Very difficult gameplay. You must be in an EXACT position to hit ball--and in the event the ball is hit it either goes 20' long, out of play, or to the opponent--and in the event you hit the ball to the opponent, he is always there to hit it back to you as you struggle to hit it. By the way, this is NOVICE level. Ouch. There are still several bugs such as the game freezing when you pause. And are we talking about the same Nintendo Tennis game, because it looks more like beavis and butthead characters except they float instead of run to the ball. Maybe the author should have waited to release this software until a few more revisions--or maybe something completely different.

Very charming tennis game. Still has some rough edges, but it has a very nice tennis feel, with the mouse control. The particle model has a genuine feeling... I make the same mistakes on the e-court as I did on live courts! I think it's still too easy to beat the Pro, but it's only version .53... The author is very responsive, too!

Excellent concept - loved the mouse movement idea! It takes a while to get used to... I just hope it's possible to master it. Yes, the general polish needs a bit of work (bug fixes, sound, music, graphics), but I reckon with a few more version numbers and a tutorial to help gamers get into the control style it could be great.
