A paddle game that changes as you play

Every point you must choose a modifier: some are good for you, some are bad for you, and some are just pure chaos. Make your paddle faster. Make your opponent's paddle smaller. Watch the ball violate every law of physics. (Even the third one! Especially the third one!) Every game is different. And be careful! Modifiers add up, and they last for the whole game.

This is a fun game, I mean really fun. Normally, I wouldn't play a pong game, but adding modifiers per score is wonderful.

Glad you enjoyed it!


Just loved how you reinvented pong. Brilliant! And the attention to detail with the ball and modified cards animation!


Thanks! We definitely put more of those little polish items in than we originally intended, but it was fun to figure out.
