Swing Pong - Ping pong for your ears

Story added: 28 May 2011 18:55

Table Tennis gets the Head First treatment

Head First, the UK based advertising and design agency that were the brains behind the much-lauded Super Twario gameification of Twitter, is pleased to announce the imminent launch of Swing Pong, an audio based game of table tennis.

Swing Pong frees Ping Pong from the confines of the table and enables players to use the innovative gesture system to serve, return and smash their way to victory. Simply touch the screen and listen for the serve, wait for it to hit your side of the table and then SWING. If you've judged the perfect moment, and the right degree of swing, you’ll return the ball and smash straight through your opponent's defences. Get a feel for the game by viewing the trailer at www.youtube.com/user/swingpongnet

Dom Conlon, Head First managing director, comments, “This is a game of ping pong that must be heard to be believed. We like doing things differently here at Head First and the chance to turn table tennis on its ear was a chance we couldn't pass on”.

Swing Pong is available in LITE and FULL versions with the latter containing lots more AI opponents, plus a multiplayer game where you can take on your friends either face-to-face or across the planet through Game Center.

Everything within Swing Pong is fully compatible with the iPhone’s Game Center, with functionality for unlocking achievements and racking up high scores for leaderboards in single and multiplayer modes.

Swing Pong is available in two flavours on the App Store for iPhone and iPod Touch devices ; Swing Pong Lite is FREE to download and is purely a single player experience. The full version of Swing Pong contains a whole host of further features including multiplayer, additional AI characters and in-game chat. The full version is priced at GBP £0.59/ USD $0.99 / €0.79. Check out the official site: http://www.swingpong.net .
