Well this is my first game on Newgrounds, it's a retake on your classic pong, you play the ball as you try to escape your ever-bouncing nightmare. I spent a few months (alternating between this and other things) working on it. It's probably got a few bugs (drop a comment if you find one) which I am sort of working out. Hoping the community likes it.

cool game

i like the idea of playing the ball but id like to see better graphics



Uhh where do i begin...

A boring little romp on what could have possibley been a great concept. There was no sound which is always the most annoying bit of games, even just a little would have been acceptable such as effects for bouncing off of the pong.
It was boring gameplay and isnt engaging or fun. It was also too easy as all you had to do was speed up to get past the paddle. A little variety couldn't haver hurt as the game is the same boring garbage the whole way through and all that happens is the paddle speeds up or 2 are added on the same side.
In all the game was too easy and boring, no sound made the interactivity even more boring and the simple gameplay was tepid. The concept was good and you could have had a really fast paced game if there was 2 paddles on opposite sides of the screen and upgrades etc..

pros:
good concept of ball trying to escape

cons:
BORING
wheres the sound effects?
wheres the music?
slow gameplay

Good points, I had written a sound track for it but it seems to have vanished with the encryption process i ran it through. I'll fix that. As for it being far too easy,I've heard that a lot and I'm thinking about fixing the paddle AI to almost match the speed of the ball. Fixes on the way people, hold on.


hahaha

You spent a few months on this?! waste of time.
This is pointless, the original pong is better, make it an upgrade not a downgrade.



Almost, dude.

The concept you have is excellent, but the way it is now, it's too easy and unchanging. I can see that this could be an amazing game once you finish.

Not a bad twist

I like the change in perspective on a somewhat tired, yet still fun classic. I miss the familiar beep-boop from hitting the paddle. You should add some sounds and/or music.
