PONG + a Dungeon Crawling RPG = ‘PONG Quest’

2 min read

Atari®s wacky PONG® re-imagining PONG Quest™ releases TOMORROW on Windows PC!

It’s PONG like you’ve never imagined… A PONG game that casts you as a brave young paddle, delving into treacherous dungeons, collecting loot, and battling enemies. Each dungeon is loosely based on classic Atari hits, including Asteroids®, Centipede®, and more.

Here is an overview of the multiple game modes awaiting longtime fans and newcomers alike:

  • Quest Mode: Jump into the boots of an adventuring paddle and delve dangerous dungeons in an effort to unlock the secrets of the Spooky Door and save PONG World!
  • Local Battle Mode: Up to four players can join the match to play the newly reimagined version of PONG gameplay, using special balls and outfits found in the story-based Quest Mode.
  • Local Classic Mode: Two local players. Classic PONG action. Play by the original rules and show your friends and foes who’s still got it!
  • Online Mode: Play against others online in both classic PONG, or the new battle variants. Victory and leaderboard fame await!

As a fresh-faced adventurer, you’ll start by getting dressed for the occasion, choosing from a variety of hairstyles, hats, clothing, and stylish accessories. Once you’re decked out for your (PONG) quest, it’s time to begin your adventure. As you explore these dungeons, you’ll talk with quirky NPCs, find Atari-classic-inspired minigames, and, of course, battle against a variety of enemy paddles! Who needs a +1 Sword of Smiting when you have dozens of powered-up PONG balls that provide you with awesome powers like Curve Balls, Potion Balls (for a quick dose of healing), and the devious Shrink Ball — which reduces the size of your foe on contact and makes it harder for them to target additional incoming shots.

PONG Quest launches on Windows PC via Steam on April 21, 2020, for $14.99 USD with a limited-time 20% discount for one week. PONG Quest will launch on Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4, and Xbox One later this spring.
