Itching to play Pong on the Web? Well, you're in luck since there are tons of sites that offer Java or Flash-based versions. One of my favorites--since about 20 minutes ago--being this one.
Maybe however, you're looking for something a little different. Perhaps you'd like to play Pong and have the game interrupted every few seconds to answer trivia questions about a show you've never heard of and just last night saw a commercial for. Well, that was my experience at least.
From the few minutes I've spent with it, I can say that the controls are responsive, but the A.I. isn't challenging at all on the first few levels. I would have played further but I just couldn't deal with the game constantly pausing to ask me '70s- and Life on Mars-related trivia questions. Otherwise, it's a pretty good version of Pong.
As for the show, as I mentioned, I saw a commercial for it last night for the first time and had no idea what it was about. Seeing Harvey Keitel with a huge flowing mullet kicking in a door didn't excite me much either.
After doing a little research I learned that it's actually a sci-fi show based on a BBC series. Of course, being the geek that I am, as soon as I learned about the sci-fi aspect I became intrigued. Also, with Clarke Peters from The Wire involved, I have to at least give it a try now.
