World Cup Table Tennis HD Cheats And Tips
Ping-Pong is a fun, universal sport that's grown in popularity, and Skyworks managed to bring all of the paddle-swinging excitement to its latest game, World Cup Table Tennis HD. In it, you'll face off against adversaries from around the globe, earning cogs with each tournament win and unlocking new gear you can upgrade for better spin and power.
If you're worried about taking a beating on the court, we have tips that will help you become a paddle master.
How do I play World Cup Table Tennis HD?
The game is played with traditional Ping-Pong rules, and you'll guide a paddle on the screen using your finger, moving it around to the left and right, as well as up and down the table. The goal is to keep the ball in play and score shots on opponents, usually by getting past them on corners, using spin hits to throw them off or a power shot to fool them completely.
For the opening rounds, master how your paddle works and keep the ball in play. You'll perfect spin shots over time, so for the first couple of opponents, work on mastering returns towards corners and away from their paddles. You'll run into tougher opponents later on, so it's vital you get the basics nailed down first.
How do I master spin shots in World Cup Table Tennis HD?
With spin shots, it's a matter of guiding your paddle over to the right, then immediately zipping it left when coming in contact with the ball (or vice versa if you're on the other side of the table). Doing this will guide a spin shot on the ball that could throw off an opponent.
Granted, they can do the same thing, so keep an eye on the ball's trajectory and prepare to return it the best you can. It can take a few tries to nail down, but eventually you'll become a Ping-Pong master.
How do I serve in World Cup Table Tennis HD?
Serving is a matter of tapping on the screen twice when your paddle is ready to go. You'll hit the ball on your own surface before it reaches the net, where your opponent will return it. Try to stay a good distance away from the net when you serve. Otherwise, it could hit the net or fall off the table, thus rewarding your adversary with a point.
How do I upgrade paddles in World Cup Table Tennis HD?
First, you can't upgrade paddles until you buy the full version of the game (more on that below). Once you do, you can upgrade them in two departments - power and spin. These will help you last longer in tournament battles, especially against tougher opponents. They also make shots easier to master, particularly power shots that you can slam past your adversaries.
In addition, there are various paddles available for purchase, ranging in design from solid colors to an interesting one with flames on it. If you're a Ping-Pong fan, these might catch your attention.
Do I need to pay for anything in World Cup Table Tennis HD?
The free-to-play version comes with a tournament mode, but in order to access new paddles and tournament tables, you'll need to pay $1.99 for the full version. This opens up various modes, including practice that you can use to master your game.
After that, if you want to power up your paddle, you'll need to use cogs. These can be earned over the course of each tournament, as well as purchased directly anywhere from $0.99 (for 100) to $6.99 (for 4,000). We suggest trying the main modes first before making an investment.
