The 3-D Vector Pong wiki last edited by LordAndrew on 05/30/14 07:39AM View full history

Overview

3-D Vector Pong is based on the 1972 game, Pong. This re-imagining of the game is among the first of its kind to utilize three-dimensional graphics. The game was released on the iTunes App store on August 2, 2008.

Gameplay

Vector Pong stays true to the original pong game. The goal is to hit a ball from your paddle to the opponents, while hopefully getting it past them to score a point. The players paddle is right in front of him, and the opponents can be seen on the opposite end of the court. Players view the playing field from behind a translucent pong paddle.

Players start the game by tapping their pong paddle to launch the ball at your opponent. The ball gets faster every time it hits either paddle. The ball can bounce off any of the walls, floor, or ceiling of the playing field, which can make catching it difficult. The scoring is standard Tennis scoring, with the score going from 15, to 30, to 40, then game point. In the event of a tie, the winner has to win by 2.
