Jimmy Connors Tennis (GB)
|Jimmy Connors Tennis|
Jimmy Connors Tennis is a tennis simulation game featuring the pro titular pro tennis player. The game was developed by NMS Software and published by Ubisoft. In this game, you must beat the championship. However, you can also play exhibition games, as well as play head-to-head with a human player if you have the link cable.
The game had a small development team. It was programmed (presumably) by Mark Crane, with graphics by Steve Beverley, audio by Mark Cooksey, and the company's founder, Richard Chappells, served as the executive producer.
The game was also released for the NES.

The game only has four songs, one of which appears to go unused. The unused jingle sounds like it may have been intended as a game start jingle. The game's music and sound effects were all written by NMS Software's in-house musician, Mark Cooksey. According to Mark, he wrote the music in C-Lab Notator for the Atari ST, which was then converted into his Game Boy sound driver. He also worked on the NES version as well, which shares the same soundtrack.
The Title Screen and Game Theme songs are pretty lengthy, even for a Game Boy game, though they do contain repeated phrases. Compared to the NES version, the Game Boy version's soundtrack plays slower, and is transposed a half-step sharp (a whole step regarding the PAL version).

Like most of NMS Software's games, this game does not have credits. However, the game uses Mark Cooksey's sound driver. Mark has confirmed the game on his website.
