Atari Pong is the original retro arcade game with a table tennis theme. It was the first commercially successful video game and one of the earliest arcade games. Move your paddle to hit the ball and defeat your AI opponent.

How to Play

Pong is a simple game, as it was released in 1972. There is no music, just satisfying ‘blip’ sound effects on contact. The visuals are just lines. Yet somehow, it’s still immensely fun to play. To win a game of Atari Pong, you must reach a score of 11 before your opponent does. You score a point every time your opponent fails to hit the incoming ball. 

The best way to catch your tricky AI opponent out is to return the ball at an angle, making it more difficult for their paddle to track accurately.
