Super-Tennis (cassette 5) plays the most advanced Tennis variant released for the Internon Video 2000.
It provides on-screen scoring using two rows of squares (one per player) where one square is added each
time a point is marked. The game is somewhat hard to play because of the automatic serve, and also the
increasing ball speed. A beep is produced when the ball gets lost.
The advanced design of this game required more complex circuits. Although a simple Tennis game could be
designed using a few chips, the on-screen scoring required more components. For this reason, this cassette
used two circuit boards: the Tennis (cassette 4) board with the main connector,
on which the additional on-screen scoring board holding 17 chips was connected. A total of over 22 CMOS
chips were used to form this game, which is also almsot twice the number of chips inside the Interton
Video 2000 system (the Philips Tele-Spiel ES-2201 contains only seven chips, and
the Videomaster Rally contains even less, hence lower quality games).
