Fingerlab's game Multipong is now called MultiBong.

Fingerlab's game Multipong is now called MultiBong, in order to respect Atari's Pong trademark...
MultiBong price will drop from $2.99 to $0.99 for a limited time only
And multipong for Android is under development

Thank you

multi"bong"?? Hmmm...not sure thats such a great idea. Why not something like Multipongo? "Bong" has some less than innocent connotations...

Atari is seemingly going ballistic with C&D orders these days. For a company that hasn't really done anything worthwhile in about 30 years, they aught to devote some of that legal budget to game development.

I'm just a sixteen bit sprite in an eight bit game.

They've tried and failed to do anything worthwhile or relevant. They are blessed with kickass IPs but lack the core competency to bake a slick, worthy product with it.

Much easier, and more profitable, to be a legal troll.

I have always liked this game, I don't really like the new name though.

It's seems that nobody appreciate Multibong's name, we didn't realize (we are french) Bong is so much close to drugs meanings. So we are thinking to change it again !Do you have some ideas?, we like Multipongo
Thanks for your reply

I don't like 'Bong' either... heh.

Are you not allowed to use the word "Pong" in your title at all, or is it just the whole name "MultiPong" that caused issues?

How about....
