SEGA has yet again stealthily dropped an iPhone game, but this time it's not a Genesis game! Virtua Tennis 2009 Minigame is a free download, and is very much NOT Virtua Tennis 2009 for the iPhone. The minigame within the app is titled "Launch Raquet", and requires the player to swing their iPhone when prompted to via light and/or vibration. Make a SMASH! and you get a point, miss and your opponant scores. Sounds like a very shallow Wii game, eh?
Regardless of the light gameplay, the fact that it's free is a big plus. Compare what a free app like Virtua Tennis 2009 Minigame to Prope's .99 cent offerings. I'll take a free so-so app to a $1 so-so app anyday. Now if only SEGA made Virtua Tennis 2009 for the iPhone. You can download the free app here.
