       tennix — A funny 2D tennis game with network play support


       tennix [options]


       tennix  is  a  top-view  2D  tennis game. It features a two-player game mode and a single-
       player mode against the computer.

       This is the SDL port of a DOS game written in 2003. The original game can still  be  found
       on the web at


       You can select the controls directly in the menu. Usually, in two-player game mode, player
       1 plays using W, S, D, E, F and player 2 plays using O, L, K, I,  J.  You  can  also  play
       using mouse, gamepad or Joystick.

       When  using  network  play,  you  have  to  configure  your opponent with the input device
       "Network player", and make sure that the opponent does the same thing (but in reverse).
