pwongNothing complicated going on here… take the old favourite, Pong, rotate the playing field and add loads of fuzzy glowing effects, a thumping soundtrack, some breakoutesque pickups and lots of balls.

If you drop a ball you lose points and take a step towards losing the game. If you get ’em past the computer-controlled paddle you win points and get to play for longer. 

It’s simple and fun and only marred by the eternal problem with Flash games: if, in your excitement, you mouse off the playing area you lose control and generally lose the game.

  1. please tell me the name of the song and some that sound like it

    (NB: yes, I know this is almost certainly spam but the question was still relevant, so…)

  2. I know the answer but I can’t remember it. They played the original to me during PE lessons when I was at school, aged about 6. But I can’t remember the name, even of the original. Sorry…

  3. Ok, I finally found it (actually thanks to this post at the game’s original site: http://www.jgames.ch/jgames/blog/?p=85)

    It’s a remix of the old classic, Popcorn (originally by Gershon Kingsley: see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Popcorn_(instrumental) for more info). This version’s by a guy/gal/group that goes by the name of EON.

    There’s a playable version of the track here: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/133937
