This. Needs. Multiplayer. Enough said.

I'm always a fan of environment changes being out of control (the lego part made me chuckle). What a great idea and great execution! I really like the character designs and the different "rackets" they use, I like how spawning monsters constantly keep you on your feet and I like the bar at the bottom of the screen and how it indicates when the arena is going to change. 

My only comment would be that the controls are a bit clunky (particularly the dashing and charging up an attack). I found myself holding the left click hoping to charge a shot, but only in game did I realize you had to hold still in order to make a shot (which makes it more crucial that you land in the same space as the ball, ie. dashing to get there).

Overall this is an excellent entry! And I really like this game (I would play a full version of this in the future) :)

I love the arena control ideas and how the arena is constantly changing due to the arena effects and the monsters.  The only thing I was confused about is why the arena effects like the black hole and the ice were created.  I would suggest possibly adding some sort of indicator to alert the player to when the arena is going to change.

Best art I've seen so far. Fun twist on tennis and interesting mechanics.

Amazing art style and audio, and a very cool gameplay loop! A more polished version of this could be a genuinely great full game.

Well done and keep up the great work!

Wow... I feel like this game whould be fun with another people, but right now i-m all alome, so i should be happy with the singleplayer experience...

Great game, especially liked the art... same stuff as the others... Only thing that i want to punt out is that the ball is quite hard to catch, so maybe expand up the range or something... But, anyway> Good Job!!! 👍

I loved the art style. The game loop was good, although a slightly bigger court may have been good, especially given the number of obstacles on the screen after ambushes. Overall a really good submission

This is an amazing game!!!! The art style is amazing! The music is amazing (especially the bassline hehe)! It's a really fun game that can and should be made a full release! It would definitely work as an online game :D

Really fun game. The character design and random events make each match different and entertaining. The sounds in the game are very cool as well and fit the game very well. Very fun game!

Wow, that's actually fun! Love the character designs. Catching a fast ball feels really good. Having the ball bounce between the rock monsters is lots of fun too.

I frequently couldn't catch the ball even though I thought that I should. Do I have to click on it or just be close enough to it? Often times I felt like I was being dominated only to then be greeted with the victory screen. Maybe characters should have a stronger visual indicator when being hit? Or maybe a sound?
