Grab your headband, matching track-suit and paddle and represent your country’s colors in some classic table tennis action with WORLD CUP TABLE TENNIS™ from Skyworks®, creators of the best quality and most fun sports games on the iPhone/iPod touch! It’s the fastest sport on a table, and now it’s right here on your mobile device. Feel like a pro, concentrating to catch the corners with each shot. Be precise, even the slightest mistake can lose the game and let down your entire country.

World Cup Table Tennis features four modes: all-new Career, enhanced Tournament, Arcade, and Multi-player/Head to Head. In Career, play against twenty countries. Start with the lowest ranked countries in the world, and go against the top rated countries – all from real world rankings! In Tournament mode, see if you can win the Gold Cup! In Arcade, play a new twist on the classic game with added bonuses! In Head-to-Head Mode, compete in real-time against another player on the same iPhone/iPod touch!

As you play Career, Tournament, and Arcade modes, unlock 8 paddles – with each paddle offering a distinct performance combination of power and spin that you can use against different countries. Wait till you master these awesome new paddles!

In addition to four modes, WORLD CUP TABLE TENNIS features ‘state of the iPhone’ 3D graphics, your choice of music and local and global high scoreboards.

KEY FEATURES:
New Career Mode: Play against 20 different countries while unlocking 8 different paddles, each with different physics
– Enhanced Tournament: Play for the Gold Trophy in quarters, semis, and the finals! You choose which country you represent.
– Arcade: Table tennis “wall practice” with different targets
– Head-to-Head: Compete in real time against another player on the same iPhone/iPod touch!
Ten paddles, each with its own physics and game play. Will you have a favorite paddle?
– Play your own Music
– Win achievements in Game Center
– Local and global score boards
– Challenge friends via emails
– Post your scores on Facebook

Personally, I had reviewed the older version on this site too!

The video above is filmed using the updated iPhone version on an iPad hence the graphics may not be as sharp as the HD version however, the HD version does have a slight pixels on the edges of the opponent’s paddle.

Cons

  1. At first I thought there’s no pause button but later I realized you can pause a game using the “i” button which may not feel like a pause button.
  2. If you leave your finger off the screen you need to quickly get back to your paddle and the paddle jumps slightly forward, not serious but just saying
  3. Why must your control to your paddle lost during “Service Breaks”
  4. Hope the developer can add in multiplayer online version so you can play with people all around the world! However not in the top down version thou

Overall, this game is highly addictive and you can potentially break a sweat while playing this game!! My neck muscle get so tensed & my finger get a little “burnt” due to prolong rubbing of the iPad screen! haha

Currently the price for the iPhone version is very cheap and the “not yet updated” iPad version is free so get it quick!
