Whoop! Stick Tennis is available for BlackBerry 10 smartphones. I've been a big fan of the game since it was released on the PlayBook and now I'm stoked as it means I can always have the game in my pocket for when I have a spare few minutes to play.
Even better news is that the game is free so you really don't have an excuse not to give it a try. You don't get all the levels with this free version though. There are 'In App' purchases if you want to have access to the whole game. However, don't blame me if you get addicted!
There's a whole load of different tournaments to choose from and initially you will be given a short tutorial of how the controls work. They are really simple though - serving is achieved by tapping the screen and then a second tap to hit the ball. After that, returning shots is all about swiping. You can swipe in any direction - the only downside here is that when performing an upwards swipe you need to get used to not swiping the phones bezel or it will minimize the app back into its Active Frame.
With decent graphics are VERY realistic sound effects Stick Tennis is a real beauty. Go and have a go yourself. I bet you will agree with me.
