Pong’s 40th Anniversary Celebrations Marked With Pong World Released For iOS Devices
Remember the Atari Pong Indie Developer Challenge that recently concluded? In conjunction with Pong’s 40th Anniversary, the grand prize winning app from the competition, Pong World, is now available on the iTunes App Store for iOS (iPhone, iPod touch & iPad) devices. It has the distinction of being the first new PONG game for mobile devices, and it continues the trend of Atari refreshing its retro franchises such as Super Breakout Bunny and Outlaw.
In Pong World, players choose one of many Pong paddles and battle against opponents on various themed boards, experiencing the game in either classic mode or all-new gameplay modes including Blitz and Hotseat. Developers zGames was awarded USD 50,000 for their efforts in addition to having their app published on Pong’s 40th Anniversary. You can download the game for FREE over here: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id553946340
In addition to the new app, Pong’s 40th Anniversary sees a limited edition Atari 2600 skinned Xbox 360 up for grabs on Atari’s Facebook page. We’ve come a long way since the 2600, but retro’s gold in video game land. So be sure to check out the page: https://www.facebook.com/atari
