Mario Tennis is a game played on Game Bang.
Mario Tennis, known in Japan as Mario Tennis 64 (マリオテニス64 Mario Tenisu Rokujūyon), is a 2000 sports game developed by Camelot Software Planning and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64. It is the first tennis-based game starring Mario since Mario's Tennis and the second game developed by Camelot on a Nintendo system. The game is known for being the introduction of Luigi's evil doppelganger Waluigi and the re-introduction of Princess Daisy and Birdo.
Using a unique control system, shots are performed by pressing one or both of the two main buttons (A or B), which make the ball spin and move in different ways, allowing players of all levels to become familiar with the mechanics of the game within a very short time while encouraging advanced players to take advantage of the variety of shots offered to come up with different strategies for winning points.
The game has sixteen characters: Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Toad, Yoshi, Wario, Waluigi, Bowser, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Birdo, Baby Mario, Boo, Parakoopa, and Shy Guy. Game modes include Exhibition, Tournament, Special Tournaments, Ring Shot, Bowser Stage, Piranha Challenge, Special Games, and Records. Matches take place on a variety of courts, with varying ball speed, bounces, and designs.
Mario Tennis received critical acclaim, impressing critics with the accessibility and depth of the controls, the physics, and amount of content. The Nintendo 64 version received "universal acclaim" according to Metacritic.
