A portable tennis game for the Game Boy. Hit the ball over the net and past the opponent to score points and win games, sets and matches.

If a player's swing lands outside of the play area on the opponent's side, then that player gets an out and the opponent scores. If a player fails to return a ball before it bounces on the court a second time, then the opponent scores a point. If both players reach 40 points at the same time, then a Deuce is declared, and the players have to play for an advantage.

There are four difficulty levels to choose from, and you can play against a second player by connecting two games with the Game Link cable.
