tennix — A funny 2D tennis game with network play support
is a top-view 2D tennis game. It features a two-player game mode
and a single-player mode against the computer.
This is the SDL port of a DOS game written in 2003. The original game can still
be found on the web at http://thp.io/2003/tennix/
You can select the controls directly in the menu. Usually, in two-player game
mode, player 1 plays using W, S, D, E, F and player 2 plays using O, L, K, I,
J. You can also play using mouse, gamepad or Joystick.
When using network play, you have to configure your opponent with the input
device "Network player", and make sure that the opponent does the
same thing (but in reverse).
