PoNG4 - Homebrew Pong for the Amiga

In the 1970's Bushnell and another guy called Alcorn released a Pong prototype at a local bar named Andy Capp's Tavern, yet it wasn't until 1975 and through a long history that Pong actually appeared in our homes, and on my very own Atari 2600. Thankfully others see Pong as a truely great game for its time and still loved to this day, as fast forward to the here and now and Cobe and jojo073 have released a Pong style game called ' 'PoNG4'; a 4 player Pong that's more than just a clone!

PoNG4 for the Amiga 500 allows up to 4 players which gives the game that extra edge over previous games of its type and a fun way to pass the time if you actually have up to 4 players in a room. Another addition to this bat n ball bouncing game, is the fact it has an eye that revolves around the center of the screen, which can deflect the ball back towards you causing a point to the other player. In terms of the satellite however, if picked up by the ball it acts like power-up / down. To be honest it might not sound like it makes much sense, but if you want a fun way to pass the time, make sure to check the instructions on the discussion site for this rather lovely little game.
