Reviews

Introduction

How would you like to enjoy a challenging and addictive game of table tennis no matter where you may be? That's made possible with the Virtual Table Tennis app that gives you the ability to enjoy a game with 3D physics action on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone. Connect to the Internet to enjoy a real-time match with another player to up the challenge even more. The game uses all touch functionality so learning how to play is simple; it’s mastering the game that is the tough part.

Table Tennis Action

It's time for a little table tennis action as you get your ping pong paddle ready for the ultimate competition. Gameplay has been specially designed to act like real players thanks to the AI system that is based on real actions. It is able to properly mimic the speed, reaction, defense, endurance, and strength of a real player. You’re going to swear this is the real thing.

As mentioned the game becomes even more challenging thanks to the fact you can play multiplayer mode using your Bluetooth or the Internet. Just keep in mind whoever you're paired against can have totally different skills than you, therefore giving you an even more exciting challenge. The app supports Game Center, Facebook, and Twitter.

 

User Experience

I really enjoy how realistic the gameplay is in this one. The developer isn't kidding when they say it's meant to feel incredibly realistic. One tip is that you may want to check out the animated tutorials before you begin. These really can help shed a little light on how to perfect your game.

Besides multiplayer mode you can also play in tournament mode and arcade mode. If you're not looking to get in a challenge you can just take advantage of the free practice mode. This is great for getting comfortable with the game and the controls.

There are customization features in the game that allow you to adjust the controls so they match your style of gameplay perfectly. Be sure to look for these in the "options" menu and try playing around with the settings here. The game is free to play but there are a variety of in-app purchases that range from $0.99 to $29.99. I will say I find the music in the app a bit obnoxious so it's a big relief that it doesn't continue through the game! With that said you can actually play your own iTunes, which is much better.
