Pang

Pang is Pong. Simple as that. You move the paddle by sliding your thumb. My thumbs aren't any larger than the average thumb, yet, the paddles are completely hidden under my thumbs. That is frustrating. Otherwise this is... Pong: grandaddy of video games.

pang is a different game entirely.

Pang is a game where you try to avoid ball bouncing on screen and shoot missiles upwards to split the balls into smaller pieces. Another name for the game 'Buster Bros'

Yeah the name is confusing. It's Pong, not Pang.

The dev seems confused too. They keep mentioning 'Pong' in their AppStore page!

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.
