Tennis Elbow 2013 released for Linux
The tennis game for all tennis lovers

Tennis Elbow 2013 is a tennis simulation with an easy and intuitive learning curve, but with exceptional gameplay depth.

In this tennis game, you'll have to show all your tactical skills, use an iron mind and quick reflexes, as well as a sharp eye to guess the ball trajectories, all of this to choose your next strike wisely.

To beat your opponent, you have the choice between all the possible strikes on a real court, from the safe strike to the acceleration, including the drop shot and the topspin lob.

This tennis simulation is designed for all tennis lovers, whether gamepad mashers or keyboard novices, because of its numerous difficulty levels. In addition, a visual help system will assist you in aiming the ball and positioning your player. You can turn these options on and off whenever it suits you.

TE2013 features one of the most complete World Tour ever made in a tennis video game. With 3000 players evolving other 38 years, competing in 300 tournaments each year, from the low rank tournament qualifications to the top level event finals, both in singles and doubles competition, you'll feel like diving in a real professional tennis player’s career.

For the best gaming experience, the minimum system requirements are: a 2 GHz CPU with 512 MB RAM, and a 128MB 3D video card.

The demo looks good, but from what I read in the forums it seems to be using a draconian DRM system. Requires an online connection to play and your key is banned if used twice at a time. Can anyone confirm it please? I would love to be wrong.

Edgar,
there's no online activation, nor requirement for an Internet connection to play, but when you buy a copy you should not run the game on 2 PCs at the same time per EULA instruction (you can install on several PCs without problem, though).

I'd very much like to try this, but get the error that libcurl.so.4 could not be found. I've tried installing the curl libraries (those that weren't installed beforehand, but to no avail.)

If you're on 64bit, you'll probably need the ia32libs installed. Fixed it for me. Fun game!

Thank you very much for the clarification. Therefore when a key is banned, only the network play is affected. Right?

Be careful with the forum thread about key thieves. I got the wrong impressions there.

Edgar,
you won't get updates as well if you share your Key. (Note: there's no online mode on Linux & Mac)

Mike & jose,
on 64-bit Linux, you have to install 32-bit libs, as explained by "Anonymous"...
Something like this might help :
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
If you find the way to fix your issue, thanks to report it.

ia32-libs does not make sense on 32bit (i686) linux. i solved it however by downgrading curl. still, it'd be nice to have it statically linked

ManuTOO,
I did not realize you are the game author. I appreciate your effort for giving support even outside your own channels. You got a new customer here.

Just one last question, I promise. If I buy Tennis Elbow in Desura, will I get the Linux version too?
Thank you.
