Tennis in the Face
I Really Enjoyed It! (Full Rating 4 1/2)
This game is the old school action game that will be loved by all ages. Very fun, very challenging and an all-round great time will be certain.
The game controls are very simple, as is the aim: Knock people out with tennis balls! Although this seems to be easy, it is anything but. The gameplay is very challenging, and requires a lot of thinking. This is not a game to be rushed as I learned very quickly!
At a later point in the game, some levels have explosive cans instead of tennis balls. This is much more challenging and I really enjoyed this.
No matter what age you are, I guarantee you will love this game!

IN YOUR FACE!
Gotta admit this looked like a stupid game, but, it's kind of addicting! The object of the game is to knock out all the cops, scientist clowns etc. by aiming a tennis ball at various and strategic places. The goal is to knock everyone out with only one ball and to achieve this you aim at energy drinks that explode or tubes of tennis balls and various other corners, banners and walls. You can replay the same scene as often as you would like and after playing the entire area another area is unlocked. As the game progresses you get things like energy drink cans to lob which handles and moves differently than the tennis ball so you have to adjust the projected path because it is heavier. A fun game for all ages, enjoy!

Hilarious stress reliever
Pros: Easy to learn, funny
Cons: Cartoon violence, not all that challenging, options screen hard to find
This isn't the type of game I'd normally play, nor do I usually like games with cartoon graphics. However, the demo video cracked me up at first glance, so I had to try it out. The object is simple: try to knock out as many of the opponents in as few serves as possible. The developers obviously had a twisted sense of humor with the characters they chose, and watching the slow motion action after winning a board (a chain reaction can continue on even after all the opponents have been knocked down, plus opponents carry assorted items which go flying# is often laugh out loud hilarious. Boards can be replayed if the player wants to improve their ranking for that screen, or to try to get one of the assorted trophies for game accomplishments. The storyline is marginal although still chuckle inducing.
I did not find the gameplay to be all that challenging--I consider myself a rank beginner at this genre, but it wasn't that difficult to win the gold crown on most of the boards until the final two city sections. It was trickier to figure out how to get to the options and player profile screens #hint: play around with the opening screen). Of course, there is a lot of cartoon violence due to the nature of the game objective, which may bother some players. As long as you don't take it too seriously, this is one funny chill out game that can be played over and over.

I LOVE THIS GAME!!! At first look, it seems that you could become bored right away, but beware! Not as simple as it seems, before you know it, you'll be thinking "Hmm, you know, if I had banked the ball off that wedge, it would have hit that rafter, broken the wall, then shattered the glass which would have released the barrel..."
For me, I wouldn't spend the amount of time I do on a HOG, but it's a really pleasant way to feed your mind for several minutes at a time. This is a really great one to keep in your game library when you want to use your brain. Probably not for kids, but if you like figuring things out, without being tied to a story line, this is for you. DEFINITELY worth $6.99.

Fun & Funny
Humorous story & characters. Game plays like Angry Birds but I like it better. Not too hard but I only played demo and it got harder as you advanced. Will probably purchase because I enjoyed it & it's something different. I'm tired of the gloom & doom games.
