of Mario's first sports appearances, this time as the ref.
Like Golf, this game sprouted a Game Boy version and
Mario's Tennis, a game featuring Mario and co. as
playable characters. You control a nameless tennis player
and play singles or doubles against competitors or play
two-play and compete with someone else.
The same design is true of music. The original has intro music and some music between rounds, I think. The Game Boy version does have light, repititious music that runs during the match. Sound effects are limited to hitting the ball and Mario making noises for various calls.
Gameplay is nothing extremely complicated. This is tennis, you hit the ball back and forth. I really shouldn't need to explain this in too much detail. In doubles, your partner (eather player or computer controlled) will play take the ball on their side and you are only responsible for one side of the court.
