Since the earliest days of video games, pong has been a classic staple of any gaming system. Originally released in 1972 by Atari, the game is still surprisingly satisfying, largely due to the simplistic gaming mechanisms, yet a real reliance on skill rather than luck.
40 years later, Genetix Studios have release Classic Pong for Android. If you are after a realistic rendition of the original Atari experience, then Classic Pong is well worth checking out, with the base game mode featuring only slightly stylised graphics that stay largely true to the look and feel of original game.
If Classic Pong is not your thing, the game also includes a Survival Mode. Survival Mode is a battle involving you and wall, with the objective to seeing how long you can last. If you are the type of gamer that likes beating your own high scores, then Survival Mode if for you.
Finally, if the plain black and white theme of classic pong is not to your liking, the game includes a large amount of customisations, where everything from the background colour to the ball speed can be changed.
All in all, Classic Pong is an excellent android game and a faithful reimagining of the classic Atari original.
