You can play it with one or two gamepad (like Xbox 360) plugged in your PC. You can also play it with a touchscreen.

Anybody knows pong, the great games released in 1972. This is a game inspired by Pong. This time, shoot with your ship to launch the ball in your opponent's side. You can charge by not shooting to increase the strength of your shoot.

Took a minute to adjust, but once I got going it was pretty fun. The spin on old school pong is entertaining, and the fast pace from start to finish really makes you watch everything.

The visuals, audio and game-play is good but the difficulty. I nearly broke my keyboard's D key pressing it rapidly and I still loss. Decent job overall though.

Try to play it with a gamepad ;)


The music and graphics are good, but the gameplay seriously needs some rework. Rather than using the [right] key to shoot, try designating a specific key to use with the opposite hand so a player can shoot *and* move at the same time, and have the chargeup continue while the key is pressed, rather than auto-shoot and charge when the key is not pressed.
Since gameplay is the key behind any game, no matter how beautiful it is presented, this one only gets 1.5 from me.

I understand your issue, it's hard to offer a default key binding that doesn't fit with a 2 player configuration for one keyboard.
However it's really better to play it with a gamepad (and with a friend).


A good idea and a good game, but there are two problems that are really anoying me, for both I'm unsure if it's just with me, but anyway...
First, the screen size is huge, it almost didn't even fit in my computer screen, you should probably make it a bit smaller.
Second, whenever I change the quality of the game, half of the sprites andobjects dissapear from the game for no reason.


Dreamirl responds:

Working on this issue,a bout the screen size you should be able to enter in fullscreen mode.
I'll set a lower default size for Newgrounds.
Thank you


Good idea. But the game has excessive lag making it unplayable. One star for the concept.
