In the 1970’s Bushnell and another guy called Alcorn released a Pong prototype at a local bar named Andy Capp’s Tavern, yet it wasn’t until 1975 and through a long history that Pong actually appeared in our homes, and on my very own Atari 2600. Thankfully others see Pong as a truly great game for its time and still loved to this day, as not only are we celebrating 50 years of the game, but there’s also new releases of Pong50 and Space Pong for the Amiga, as well as PongClone for the C64!

Pong50 For Amiga – By Giuseppe Mignogna
Space Pong for Amiga – By Mauro Antonio Radice
PongClone by Emanuele Bonin – Commodore 64

Yes indeed thanks to a triple heads up from our good Saberman, not only can you enjoy three different designs of the game with a choice of the Amiga or C64, but if you remember the classic game of Pong then you know what to expect with the gameplay! Bounce the ball back and forth through the up and down movement of the square bats, if the ball hits the area behind your square bat it’s a point to your opponent which continues until one of you loses the game!
