Set at the Bella Country Club, home of the Jimmy Connors' Invitational Tennis Tournament, the game lets one to four players get on the courts. Game options include singles and doubles games, court surface, four skill levels, and friendly or tournament play. The actual tennis game is a grueling challenge, requiring time and practice to fully master the game. Where to stand, when to swing, what swing to use, and where to aim all must be decided in seconds, and beginners will require quite a bit of patience at first. To help, the easier levels display squares to show where to stand in order to return the ball. The computer opponents are worthy opponents, gradually building in difficulty as you advance.
Handmade Software has delivered a solid, no-nonsense portable version of the sport in Jimmy Connors Tennis. Challenging action, detailed graphics and crisp voices and sounds made this game a welcome addition to the Lynx's game library! It is difficult without being frustrating too.
The graphics are cute, having nicely drawn courts while the sprite animation is fairly good.
The sound features realistic thuds of the ball as it bounces off the ground or is hit on a swing and this is the most common sound here! The Loveliest of all are the digitized voices (judge announces each score and fault etc), crystal clear and among the best for the Lynx back then date.
