Bip! Bip! Bip! Boop! Everyone loves PONG! So everyone loves thirty six PONGS even more! Work those learning muscles with EDUTAINMENT PONG! Get serious with SERIOUS PONG! Shoot a laser gun in LASER PONG! Play PONG in PONG PONG! And many more!
PONGS was written in ActionScript 3 using Adobe’s FlashBuilder 4.5 and the excellent Flixel library. You may not be surprised to hear that it is based on Atari’s PONG. Sound effects were made in bfxr. The font in PONGS is Commodore 64 Pixelized by Devin Cook. The references in PONGS are mostly pretty obvious, but if you haven’t heard of Shit Snake by Draknek or B.U.T.T.O.N. by Die Gute Fabrik, then now you have!
You can read my writing about the game on my blog. PONGS was featured on Kill Screen, Free Indie Games, The Verge, Rock, Paper, Shotgun, and Edge Online. It has also been discussed in German on NEGATIV and Superlevel! Lorenzo Pilia made an awesome controller for PONGS and you can watch a video of it!
PONGS has been exhibited as part of A MAZE / Johannesburg.
