You know how the only redeeming part of Pong is playing with a friend? 

Well now you cant. There is only one player.

That aside, great game! Simple yet incredibly fun!

i love the style!

Great work!

this is a very most orignal unique take of pong I ever witnessed. your partner did great with music choice and controls are smooth, and the game feel is very high which is good. It's pretty addicting.


Wow, so polished since i last saw it

Just WOW

Probably the best way to implement one player pong. Making things spherical adds a unique challenge, and the introduction of an only one mode makes this project fit the theme even more. Great art-style, and overall nice job!

Great Game, especially in Only One mode

I saw a joke entry of one player pong on the first day of the jam

This is definitely how it should have been executed ;)

This is awesome!!! Played the heck out of it! XD

My best is 00:25 for ONLY ONE and 00:20 for normal. I guess that I get confused about the rotation direction while using 2 buttons. On the other side, having only 1 button and 1 rotation direction is easier for me. This game is really addictive.

Extremely fun, spent like half an hour, trying to reach my hi-score, really brings out that self competitiveness. Only one bar, one ball, and one opponent, yourself.

oof, tough game. I could barely get 21 seconds on normal mode. Really good job though. Very creative use of the concept in multiple ways.

Gorgeous game; it's great, man! 00:19 on normal... AND 00:51 ON ONLY ONE!!  I HOLD THE CURRENT HIGH SCORE (in the comments)

hard game

Dope !

this is pretty dope

genius! very hard tho

You're a genius! It is hard though but this is a cool idea :D

This is pure genius.
I find it strange, though, that it's easier to play with only 1 key.

Same I find it easier with just one key xD

Maybe you just practiced well?

Got to 10 secons, it's hard to get used to, but it's very fun to play! Could use something to keep note of your high score.

It's really fun! The controls are a little sensitive at first, but I was able to get used to them. After about 4 tries, I was able to get 9 seconds on the "only one" mode.Good job!

Please add a scoreboard!


Gosh, I weep at the awesomeness of the idea :) Even though it is hard to play.

Cool game :)

this is a greaty concept,I absolutly loved it,how do I rate it for the game jam?
