Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Chop Chop Tennis will appeal to a wide range of players, from young kids to teens and beyond. And neither the content nor the difficulty should cause problems for any segment of that vast audience. The game has an edgy cuteness to its look and belongs to the same franchise as the popular Chop Chop Ninja app, but kids will find nothing more here than a really great tennis game. Multiplayer games can occur only on the same local WiFi network so there's a minuscule chance kids could play against strangers, though with no chat function there's virtually no safety or privacy concern.
Is it any good?
CHOP CHOP TENNIS has a look that screams "kid game." It's characters resemble extras from The PowerPuff Girls. And while there's nothing here that wouldn't be appropriate for kids, this is actually a sophisticated tennis game with one of the most satisfying control schemes around. As long as you swipe your finger after the ball's first bounce, you'll hit it. But exactly how and where you hit it is dependent on the angle, curve, and speed of your swipe. It's an incredibly intuitive and visceral way to play. Add that to its funky art style and you've got one of the best tennis game around.
