|Nice follow-up to Loriciel's tennis game Tennis Cup from 1990, released on Amiga, Atari ST, DOS and Amstrad CPC+|
|Gameplay Nice follow-up to Loriciel's tennis game Tennis Cup from 1990. Gameplay has been nicely improved in this one, so finally you can also produce good strokes and winners more often from the baseline, than just from the net. Game options and graphics are very similar but a few animations have been added, and, of course, they are as nice as in the first game. In short, Tennis Cup II is another good job by Loriciel's lead designer Dominique Sablons, who also also adds support for the adlib music board (didn't get that one to work, though). Overall, a good tennis game, fixing many of the weak points from the earlier game and improving a bit on the strong points. |
Graphics/Sound The CPC+ features nice graphics, good detail of the courts and smooth sprite animations. Well graphically I prefered the "Pro Tennis Tour" on the CPC+ but the last is less playable than the Tennis Cup 2, as it was hard to control the player.

GRAPHICS: 12bit RGB color palette (4096 colors) supporting 32 colors on screen (16 + 15 for sprites + 1 border). Up to 16 hardware sprites. Splitting the display into separate modes and pixel scrolling both became fully supported hardware features.
