Default iPingpong 3D - now with multiplayer

iPingpong only came out on 12th Dec (in UK)

I had to try this when I saw the screen shots
and the game looks good in play and the menu systems are really slick

As for the game - you know, I'm getting a bit addicted to it. At first I tried it after installing and was a bit disappointed (but I was rushing out on way to a job - so try-out was really rushed)

now having played it more this morning it really is quite good - I'm getting better at it and starting to find better ways of dealing with angles, altering pace and getting some spin on the ball

I still haven't won a match (which may suggest the difficulty is too high?) but then I'm enjoying trying and reckon it will get all the more satisfying as I get better at timing the swipes for shots (I'm finding that making moves as close to the shape you'd swing a real bat works best - which is neat)

all in all, iPingpong seems great value for 59p here in UK (99c I guess in USA)

just don't be put off when you first try it and it might seem more basic (until you get the swipe shapes to make for best shots) - it's the sort of game that gets better the more you play - so longevity value seems high

I took a punt on this, seeing as .59p ($.99c) is dirt cheap, and I was expecting to be deleting it after a few short plays.
It's surprisingly intuitive and natural controls are a joy, and feels right. this is a gem.

Interesting choice to use 70's porn music..

Is there a way to make the ball move faster? From the video it appears to be moving in slow motion.

It's a well done game (even spin is supported) that just needs a better balance IMO. Sometimes I have a feeling that I have a few plays to get a point... Or I just need to practice it a bit more.
