Revive Old Times with Pong with Multipong
Posted August 9, 2014 at 04:00 pm by egzthunder1
Video games have been around for nearly a century. They are deeply embedded into the fabric of society and are not going anywhere anytime soon. One of the most iconic exponents of the entire video game world is none other than Pong. This game, which was created in 1972, was the precursor to what it is today a multi-billion dollar business. The idea and style of game has spawned tons upon tons of different versions and variants of itself and one of the latest installments in this genre was created by XDA Forum Member ahmed.samir.wafa.
Multipong is a game that pretty much resembles the 1972 creation, but with better graphics. For those of you in the audience who may be a tad too young to even know about the existence of this, Pong is basically computerized ping pong. You control a paddle and your objective, much as it is in Arkanoid-style games, is to not let the ball go past you. However, the game goes a step further because of its play modes. You can test your reflexes against the computer, play against someone using the same device (fantastic way to make use of the 10 finger detection that most capacitive screens can accomplish in this day and age), or play against people in your Google+ circles. If there is no one around at the time, you can even send them invitations to come in and join you through Google+ as well.
The game is a first release by the dev, and he is looking for feedback on how to make the game better. Considering that pong was basically the foundation for all the games above, making suggestions to improve it might not be entirely impossible. Having said that, please do drop by the thread to share your thoughts and ideas with the dev and the rest of the community.
