this is not my work i felt it too good not to be on newgrounds. os i submittted it



Rated 4 / 5 stars

Great Game

So simple in cocept (basically Pong from a different angle) and yet so addictive and so fun. I love it, it's well executed at every level. A little music might have been nice. I fear with the current voting trends that it'll be blammed by people who see the low size, assume it's crap and vote zero without watching. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will stick around.

very addictive

This game deserves a much higher score!!!!

I was high lee entertained by the intensity of this game . . . itz what Galactic Tennis wanted to be. Excellent learning curve and the replay factor is through the roof. Probably the hottest first submission I've ever seen. But the score doesn't do it justice . . . dumb n00bz. Rock On Special Edition.

BOTTOM LINE: A Rock-Solid first submission hidden behind a slew of unfair votez.

How strange this got a low score!

While it's reminiscent of Pong with a 3 dimensional perspective, it's just that much more alive in this presentation. It looks nice, the sounds fair (wouldn't mind a lil optional music though), and has good gameplay. All this for 66kb! It's got that simple but fun concept that Pacman and other 1970-early 90's era games have, which is why I assume it's lost on NG's younger crowd who know graphics before anything like quality. I gave this game a fat ole 5.

Simple but excellent

Addictive and challenging. A fresh take on Pong, more like real PingPong but played in a box. You can get some pretty wild curves off the walls.

Great Game.

I agree with FrostGiant on this. It was a great concept, well made and very adictive. It would have been better with some music options, But it was still great without them. It is a game for the older NG fans. Most of the younger ones wont understand that the simplicity is what makes it complex. I look forward to seeing more games from you. P.S. Great job with the file size!

You guys argue amongst yourselves, THIS GAME IS AWESOME. whoever made it.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Well, Good I Guess...

It's a bit simple but good. BTW, people been saying this one game is a rip-off of this. It's called 3-D Pong. It's better than this and is WAY different. But hey, good job anyway! Dunno why people hate this so much.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


just to say, this is way better than the 3D pong imo, and also is more complex.

People hate it because it is not this users work :|


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Yo people!!!

If you judge a game, you should judge the game. NOT THE FACT THAT IT IS STOLEN!!! I mean come on, this flash was meant to be stolen from the first day the original author put it on i-net as a tutorial. And yeah, curveball is trying to take credit he doesn't deserve, but who cares??? Stuff like this belongs on NG, period.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

I have spoken.

9th level, w00t.

I never seem to get tired of this. It's simple and action-packed to the rim. No, wait, it's overflowing actually.

Where did this come from

Did this enticing masterpiece simply poof into existence? No named author, no background, it's as if the author merely wanted to give the internet a gift without the need to be recognized, in the same way someone donates a $20,000 dollar check to charity anonymously. If you, the author, should ever come to read this, all I can say is thank you. And of course, thank you curveball87 for posting this!

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

aswell as thers have commented on the need for multiplayer and music ,it gets some what annoying having to reset the screen when you die
great game tho

This is the first time I played it with sound, and the flat basket ball sound isn't right.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

It is what it is

It is just so difficult to hate this, because it delivers exactly what it is supposed to deliver. The best thing was probably how it did get addictive as the gameplay sped up the more it went on. There was not much in the area of graphics but decent overall. Granted, it would have been nicer if you had put some variety into the differnet levels. The most authentic part is how you get a good sense of depth while playing this. It again helps that I am really good at that game and it is always satisfying to beat the computer.

This is like a remake of pong

Just like Pong, it's still a classic even to this day.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

"When Pigs Fly" and "I wanna be the flash game" may force you to be patient, but this is the game that requires the most skill in all NG.
After playing it on and off ever since I was a kid I still haven't reached lvl.10 even once.
This is the kind of game that improves hand-eye coordination, dexterity, motor skills and increase your sperm count.
This is the original, there are lots of mods but they aren't as good.
