The Grand-Daddy of them all PONG returns in PONG Quest

It may have been around longer than almost every other game out there, but it isn’t quite out of ideas yet; it’s PONG like you’ve never seen before, and yet retains everything you love about it! What is it? PONG Quest for Xbox One, PS4, Switch and PC.

PONG Quest is Atari and Chequered Ink‘s new modern take on classic PONG gameplay; a dungeon-crawling RPG that features the iconic paddle in a whole new environment. Players must take their brave young paddle through these dungeons – in turn based on other classic Atari games including Centipede and Asteroids – and defeat opponents in classic PONG style revitalised with energetic, RPG-esque battles. Complete these dungeons and you will reveal the mystery of the Spooky Door…

“PONG as an RPG is something completely unexpected, but wonderful in execution,” said Atari COO Jean-Marcel Nicolai. “We are thrilled to bring PONG Quest to life to honor the classic IP and bring the beloved gameplay to a new generation of players and RPG fans. Atari has a rich portfolio of titles and exploring new ways to breathe new life into those franchises yields exciting results.”

Unsure exactly how this will work? You’re not alone so for now check out the trailer below:

Your paddle is completely customisable in PONG Quest with brand new colours, clothing, accessories and more. And with over 50 different PONG balls each providing a unique powerup, the PONG you know and love may be completely unrecognisable!

PONG Quest will feature both single-player adventure mode and multiplayer battle modes for up to three other players both offline and online, with enough gameplay twists to flip your paddle upside down, round and round, and inside-out.

PONG Quest looks like a real love letter to not only one of the first ever videogames, but also all those other Atari classics some of us older folk grew up playing. Personally, just give me a dungeon based around Food Fight and this will be my Game of the Year right here. Thankfully we do not have an age to wait as PONG Quest is arriving on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Steam in the Spring.

And if you can’t wait till then, you may wish to check out PING Redux.
