Pong

Part of IF Arcade

Author:Stephen Granade
Genre:Adaptation>Game
Released:2001
Review:

A textual adaptation of the videogame, with amusingly stilted descriptions, like "Accursed opponent blocks ball from fated date with gap." There are lots of alternate descriptions, and their enthusiasm is infectious, but the gameplay is so tedious that you're still unlikely to finish a game. Includes Ben Parrish's 1994 "Pong FAQ".

Rating: ***
