A very silly, very Friday diversion that I’m mighty tempted to have another crack at when I return home blind-drunk from a chum’s stag do later tonight, solely for malcoordinated hilarity’s sake. It’s Pong. It’s Breakout. It’s Pong and Breakout, both controlled by one player – that’ll be you, then – at the same time. Yeeargh.
You control the horizontal and the vertical, to coin a phrase. Moving the mouse left moves your Breakout bat back and forward in the left-hand window, while moving it up and down plays Pong against a reliably efficient AI opponent over on the right. While initially terrifying, it’s not quite as laughably difficult as it sounds – but it’s certainly an endurance test for your wits. Drummers will, I supect, be rather good at it. Have a go here, PongOut heroes.
