That's an impressive plug there.
No, some French guy did. I just love it and only came across it by accident on Youtube. It deserves more visibility, certainly more than Top Spin 4. That used to be my tennis video game, but only because everything else I knew about was terrible or arcadey. I'm amazed that game design studios with massive resources at their disposal do such a piss poor jobs with a relatively simple game to code. It's just updated Pong, right?
Still, was the 'only $20!' a little over the top?
To leng jai:
Animation in Tennis Elbow is a mixed bag. It's a very low-budget game, but it's mod-able. With the right mods, serve motions and groundstrokes are very accurate for even minor players (much more accurate than Top Spin 4, as I mentioned above). Movement doesn't look great, but you're focused on the ball then and it never takes me out of the game.
