Helicopter Tennis is a local multiplayer game where two players use helicopters to play tennis against each other.

Avoid crashing your helicopter while chasing down shots and throw off your opponent by varying your shot’s power and direction to outlast and outwit your opposition. Use your underhand and overhand swings to return the ball strategically, and when you create an opening, use your charge shots to seize decisive victory!

Helicopter Tennis is a game about learning to control your helicopter, pushing it to its limits while avoiding crashing and missing your shots.
