App description: #1 Essential Pong App, AppAdvice

Yes, it is JUST PONG, and it looks like any other pong game out there, but this pong game has better features and plays better than the original or most pong games out there.

Did you know that the original pong has been around since 1972. The game is still fun and addictive, and that's why consumers love the game of pong, not to mention the simplicity of the game.

Pong is all about angles, so that's what I improved. The paddles are using a convex formula. The problem with most of the clones is that the ball just bounces in the opposite direction, like a laser reflecting off of a mirror. With convex paddles you have more control of the ball so it's a lot more challenging.

Next I had to make the AI good, to keep you coming back for more. There is an easy and hard mode. Hard mode is very challenging, but not so much where you get frustrated.

*** Now with game statistics, winning streaks, point streaks and more. ***

Features
- Convex system for the paddles
- Unique CPU controlled AI
- Game statistics with save
- Optional ball and Paddle size
- Very smooth game play
- Easy and Hard modes
- One or Two player modes
- Pause and continue
- Cool sound effects
- Left Handed Option

It's very easy to play, just touch and move the paddle to hit the ball. Try to hit the ball past the other players paddle to score. The first person to score 11 points wins.
Two player mode, grab a friend and paddles and go at it!

If you like our app then please review/rate Just Pong, because high ratings keeps us motivated to add new features and updates. Thank you.

Redeemed YTF76LWTFTT3, I actually have the pinball machine called Slug Fest that is very similar to this game. I'll be interested to see how this game plays, I'll leave a review on itunes after spending some time with this game. Thank You.

My only problem is that in your description it says this is the "first mechanical baseball machine to hit the app store" but this clearly isn't true. There is a game called Super-Tilt Baseball: Pinball that has been on the app store for almost a year now. While this game looks superior in every way, your statement is still not true. You might want to change that line in your app description.

I bought this a few days back and I really like it. I love the vintage look and the controls are simple.

LOL, nice catch. Actually I purchased that game a while back. I thought that was more like a pinball game, but I'll change my description to: "first mechanical baseball machine to hit the app store for the iPad"
