In this version of Pong, your paddle comes equipped with, you guessed it, missiles!
In this version of Pong, which is, in actuality, a remake of the classic arcade game of the same name, you are against another player of your choosing, who wants to hit a ball over your side of the court. Fortunately you have rockets to blast him and the ball, if you desire. Unfortunately your opponent can shoot you, too.
As in most Pong games, the graphics aren’t all that exciting. The whole idea is two rectangles hitting a shape. Well, anyway, you could either say this graphics in this game are not very good, or “authentic” with a bit of an update.
The game play is about as exciting as a game of Pong can get. The missiles have a bit of an effect on game play but none really too exciting.
The music is cool, though. Not much can be said about it, except that it's very fun to listen to.
So, that’s about it, it's Pong, it's got missiles, it’s got music. What else do you need?
Missile Pong adds an extra twist to your average pong game. As in the original pong the players must try and knock the ball onto the opponents side of the screen by hitting it with their bat. In this game you have the added option of hitting the ball with a missile which will change the balls path effectively confusing the opponent.
Graphics: Emphasis on the word basic. The graphics are similar to the original pong game and the sprites are simple. 4/10
Sound: The sounds make me cringe. They're simply background beats to classic songs. A few minutes of listening to that and I turned the volume right down. 2/10
Gameplay: Luckily the magic's all in the smoothness of the movement with both bat and ball and the great new innovative missiles. 6/10
This really could have been a good game. The gameplay's good but the music ruins everything. 4/10
