Better late than never right? No? Well OK, sorry. The reason it’s taken so long to write this news article for “PONG 4k” (RetroKomp 2018) is because I didn’t find the game.
I should be wiser and look better around!!! Because RetroKomp in Poland had many more game releases for the Amiga other than just Aminer which is also a great Amiga game.
Almost no info about PONG 4k for Amiga
Except that you might find some info about the game on Pouet.net. It is very difficult to find any info about this Breakout clone that came on 3rd place at RetroKomp in Poland. So, this game deserves way more attention than it got we think at Amitopia.
One of the better sides of this breakout clone is the fact that PONG 4k got awesome graphics, music and gameplay. It is also made ready for Amiga CD32 console too.
The gameplay in it itself is also much easier to play than many other breakout games that is known for Amiga users such as the popular Poing 5 series (by Paul van der Valk), Megaball series (difficult to find on-line. Latest version can’t be found on Aminet etc.) or the similar and much harder Maniacball by Peter Elzner, which is also very nice.
I’m not saying there isn’t a challenge in PONG 4k, but overall if you are good at these types of Breakout games you’ll be steaming through those levels like nobody’s business, and if you aren’t? Well if you die enough times on a level until you feel like a dried raccoon on a tree. You will master PONG 4k much faster that the other similar games for Amiga.
Get this Awesome Multilayer Breakout Game
So where does this leave us? Well PONG 4k is a game that got one of the best Multiplayer Game modes!
You’re simply will have the time of your life with your friend as each player controls each other breakout platforms. The one that doesn’t catch the ball that is flying over the screen looses. But this ball isn’t just between the players plattforms. Oh no! You need to break some bricks too which makes the gameplay more interesting.
In the video below you can see how awesome the gameplay is. Amitopia Amiga Magazine doesn’t have a Amiga CD32 console, so at the moment we won’t be able to make a full review of it. The game looks really awesome and the pixelart especially is fantastic!
