Snapchat serves up new “Bitmoji Tennis” multiplayer game


If you’re a tennis fan, you may want to get in on some Wimbledon action. Hit the courts with friends in Bitmoji Tennis—the latest, made-for-Snapchat game, now available on Snapchat.

The addictive game is available exclusively on Snap Games, Snapchat’s real-time multiplayer gaming platform found right within Chat.

The most enticing, for me at least, is the ability to challenge a friend to a match, or hit the courts with a groups of friends for rounds of winner-takes-next.

Of course, you can choose to go solo and train with a tennis robot called Rackets. Don’t let his cutesy exterior fool you. He serves a mean buffet of punishing forehands and backhands.

If you want to take a swing at it, here’s what you need to do. A word of warning: Highly addictive!

  1. Open a Chat or Group Chat and tap the rocket icon in the Chat Bar to launch Snap Games. Tap ‘Bitmoji Tennis’ in the game drawer and you’ll be on the court in no time!
  2. To kick off the match, tap to serve the ball and run left and right — your racket will swing automatically when you’re near the ball. 
  3. Tilt your device to aim your shot — The first player to five points wins. 
  4. Tap ‘Stats’ in the main menu to view your win count, best streak, longest rally and more. You can also upgrade your tennis racket by watching a short ad between games. 

All Snap Games are designed for synchronous, high-fidelity mobile gameplay, built on the powerful PlayCanvas game engine.

Launched this past April, Snap Games features a curated selection of both first and third-party titles like Bitmoji Party and Zynga’s Tiny Royale.

Bitmoji Tennis is Snap’s second original title following Bitmoji Party, and was created in-house by Snap Games Studio.
