“Tennis for Two” displayed a simplified tennis court from the side and featured a gravity controlled ball that needed to be played over the net. The game was played with two box shaped controllers, both equipped with a knob for trajectory and a button for hitting the ball.
The concept of this Tennis for Two is to allow the two players to toss the ball to each other continuously in an oscilloscope display.
