Remember when Pong was fun?

Recommended Posts

Well, now it can be again, with 3D Pong, the way Pong was meant to be. There are two rules to the game:

1 - Don't miss
2 - See rule 1

The only quirk I've seen is that the computer gets 40 points each time it wins, while you get 20. However, it does make it more challenging. My record so far is 515.

Yeah, but some people like curveball better than this. But I kinda like this better, cause it's faster.

I've played that before. It starts out very slow and kind of boring, but it gets better by about the fourth level. I've only gotten to level nine once, but usually end up losing by about level seven. For some reason, it just doesn't have the same appeal as 3D Pong.

I haven't actually played Pong in the arcades. I played it on the Atari 2600 as part of Video Olympics. I also played some of the variants, especially Breakout (and my favorite out of those is Arkanoid).

Curveball is the best Pong game. Made it to level 9 without losing a ball several times. Scored over 38,000 points once.

Hint: Make the game run as slowly as possible.

I'm not sure. It's a minor annoyance, but I just think of it as a bigger challenge to actually beat the computer.

You'll win if you can get anything just over 400 points.

Ah those were the days. Qubert, pong, and many other atari classics spring to mind (forgotten the names of most of them though).
