Play a round of 'Pong!' with your Commodore 64. Our type-in nostalgia listing
is a version of the telegame classic 'Ping-Pong' - the grand father of all
Who'd have thought it? Already more than ten years ago people played with the
computer. At that time they called it 'telegames' what today is known as videogames
to us - but in a far simpler form.
Now the telegame classic receives new honour as short Bonsai listing for the
C64. There is everything in this small program what brought pleasure to
telegamers in those earlier times.
In principle it is a table tennis variant on the screen. Using his racket
each player tries to bring the ball behind the opponent's racket.
You play by twos or only against the computer. The bats react very quick so
that 'cutting' the ball is no probelm. A round is of 15 points.
The program 'Pong!' is in packed format and first of all has to be depacked by
'RUN' after entering with the MSE. Then the game can be started by another 'RUN'.
