Not all that good.

What this game basically is is a flash with a VERY VERY VERY overused pong engine with a large rack of uncompressed music. There was no reason for this game to take up any more than 1 or 2 megabytes, let alone 8. Even though it loads almost instantly because I have T3, it's not far for people who don't have internet as good as I have. (or people who are willing to pay as much as I do, yay Comcast!)

Anyway, it's a bit fun at first, but even though there is a barrage of upgrades, pretty much none of it is worth the effort put into unlocking that stuff. Pong is an overall boring game, and unlike many other overused mods of this engine, this was a bit fun, and different. It wasn't a complete copy, or a shitty recolor, in fact it took the engine very far compared to the original, and I liked that.

As for the music, it could be compressed so it doesn't take up more than 2 megabytes, because having anymore than that is just a waste of space. I decompiled this flash and found out that without music, this flash would take up about 200 kilobytes, so the authors could at least use streams instead of events, and slightly lower the bitrate.

Also, the upgrades weren't interesting enough. All there was to buy was a paddle, ball, paddle color, and such. Even with the interesting shapes, it wouldn't bounce off any of the spikes, because this only uses stupid bounding box hittest. The author was a bit lazy there. As I said before, the upgrades were NOT interesting, and they barely made the game any funner. Even so, I have not seen a mod of this engine that has upgrades. Maybe if you added some powerups, like fast ball.

Also, I was quite disappointed that you couldn't make your own PING PONG engine. Those should be quite easy, at least to make it different enough from the original engine that it would be blatantly unrecognizable. I'm not going to say that it's stolen, maybe a little more effort could have been put into modifying the engine.

I'd also like to make a point about how the previous versions of this game are EXACTLY the same. I decompiled each one, and yes they had almost unrecognizable differences. Basically all that's happening is that the author is submitting the game again and again, but slapping on different "version numbers". I'm not going to go too haywire about that, but as long as there are recognizable, utterly DIFFERENT changes from previous versions, DON'T SUBMIT ANY MORE!!! In fact, I bet the only reason this is happening is so that the author can keep his flash on the newest 50.

And Finally, there is no 46x46 preview. Those are incredibly easy to make and don't take much time. If the author has enough time to upload an 8.4 megabyte file 6 times, he could have at least made an avatar.

I was incredibly disappointed about this, but it is better than almost all pong games I come across. I'm more disappointed so this gets A 1/5, 2/10. Effort? Little to none.

Well, all I want to tell you is that you are wrong on more than half the facts you wrote. It's not the song taking up almost 6 mb, it's the animation at the beginning. Since it's 3D, it is pretty big and i'm working on making it smaller. All the other stuff you said was crap since it's not true... btw, if this is better than almost all pong games you came across, why did you rate it only a 1 out of 5? Please explain that to me.. Thanks

What changed?

I played the first. This would be my second version of this game. I see nothing that has changed. You keep submitting this over and over, with a new number each time. 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.4. Hell, by the end of this year, we will be at 8.111111 and there won't be any improvement. I will give you credit on one thing, in this one, my paddle seems more slower than it was in the first version.

1/0

what do ya want me to say, man..... it's fucking PONG. If you really wanted to upgrade it, make the paddles/ball 3D. Put in some backgrounds. Do something different......... This isn't original and there's nothing that good about it. Boo!!!!
