Snapchat is celebrating Wimbledon with a Tennis Bitmoji (emoji) that allows fans hit the virtual court with their friends.
Snapchatters can train solo, challenge a friend to a match, or hit the courts with a group of friends for rounds of winner-takes-next. 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.
Ace! Hit the courts with friends in Bitmoji Tennis, a new, made-for-Snapchat game, is now available exclusively on Snap Games, Snapchat’s real-time multiplayer gaming platform found right within Chat.
Tap to serve the ball and run left and right — your racket will swing automatically when you get near the ball. Tilt your device to aim your shot — Wimbledon, here you come! The first player to five points wins.
All Snap Games are designed for synchronous, high-fidelity mobile gameplay between friends, built on the powerful PlayCanvas game engine. Launched this past April, Snap Games features a curated selection of both first and third-party titles, such as 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.
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 start serving!
Bitmoji Tennis was rolled out yesterday (Monday) . The game might not be available to everyone yet since it’s new, but users should check back periodically and make sure their app is up to date.
