Stick Tennis is a challenging and entertaining virtual pro tennis game where players can choose their favorite rock star tennis player with individualized, signature characteristics.  With more than seventy players to choose from, the app offers high-octane action on the court, and while anyone can play, only the very skilled can master it.  The developers have designed Stick Tennis to closely mimic the physics of a real match, so tactical agility is a prized attribute that can rocket gamers to the top of the ranks. 

The Daily Challenge presents a different pair of world-class players every day of the week where gamers can earn trophies. The Slams let users select a famous avatar from the top 16 seeds to compete in a tournament and World Domination enables the top competitors to meet their match.  Casual Sets allow beginners to practice their shots and move their way up levels of difficulty.  The Friends Challenge invites gamers to throw down the gauntlet to see who performs better against the same virtual opponent.  With all this variety of competition, users remain glued to the action.

In addition, the game has some extra details like varying court surfaces and realistic swings, so players can actually develop their own style.  Users can buy rackets to improve their stats.  This array of unique functions means endless excitement for both seasoned gamers and tennis enthusiasts.

The crisp, responsive gameplay of Stick Tennis rewards nimbleness and technique on the latest Android* tablets.  The stunning graphics and satisfying sound effects give each match an enhanced, realistic feel.  Interactivity, accessible with these powerful tablets' high-speed Internet, measure individual achievement and encourage improvement.  As Intel® Software Partners, Stick Sports had access to extensive business and technical resources through the Intel® Developer Zone.

"We worked hard to make Stick Tennis a breathtakingly lifelike gaming experience," says Paul Collins, CEO of Stick Sports.  "The smooth touch capabilities and sharp graphics on Android* tablets make for sensational animation that can reach an even broader gaming community."

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
