This game could really be quite good, but many things could be improved. The idea is really great, but a few things should be taken into account:
-The music; pretty gay, and repetitive.

-Ball speed; at the beginning, very very slow, and you arent bothered to speed up until the second stage (4 paddles), and you screw up. Add physics; make the ball faster each time, although don't have huge jumps in speed
-Gameplay; a bit repetitive; you can just stand the 4 paddles in the same place- add powerups, coins, etc
-Score; don't have it sprint at some points- have a continous flow of points, or extra points for each hit/powerup

Personally, I think this would be a very good game, but some more ideas have to be taken in.

Pretty good

It's a decent game, makes for some fairly challenging play, and you did good with the transitions between how many paddles you used. However, I do have just a couple hangups.

First of all, no matter how you move the paddles the ball will continue to bounce in one direction (ie: if I move a paddle down quickly onto the ball, the ball still bounces up.) So, maybe work a little on the physics of the game.

And secondly (this may just be me but) I think you should try to find a music loop that doesn't skip between the end and the beginning (sounds like a small detail, but good sound sometimes means the difference between just a pass, and making the front page).

Other than those points this is a fun game that becomes pretty challenging at multitasking. Improve on a few things and I'm sure you'll make the front page in no time. Hope this review helps ^^

Interesting.... Fun in Theory....

It's a very nice game..... I'm just not a fan of the "simple on paper yet annoying as heck" controls. But maybe that's just because it's so easy for my fingers to misclick on this keyboard. I also dislike the difficulty curve. You start off instantly with 2, then move up to 4, and then 8, with 4 in the dead center. I'll be honest, I don't see anyone but a Spider who enjoys playing with himself to master this game (and even still, he'll have a hard time with it). It's good in theory, but I don't tink Pong was ever ment for 8 players in a small pace cramped together that way. Pong probably was't ment for multitasking period. Or else it wouldn't have been so simple.

Thank you.


It's definitely hard, but the only question you have to ask yourselves as developers is, "is it too hard?" I could handle the 4 bats for a while, but it might just be a bit too much to ask. Maybe it's just me! I don't know. Regardless, this is a little game you play when you want to kill a few minutes, and the leaderboards were a nice touch. overall, decent job! You gave me a few minutes of fun, and with that ad, you even got yourself some cash! :D What more can I ask?
