REVIEWS

"Solid physics make it a snap to learn... The musical score for Fling Pong - The Planets takes iPhone soundtracks to a whole new level. Musically, Fling Pong feels like a lost snippet from Fantasia. It's epic and overpowering... Fling Pong - The Planets should be considered money well spent."

"The presentation is very well done, with great looking graphics and excellent music... Fling Pong - The Planets is also pretty darn fun, and with 32 levels, OpenFeint integration and a phenomenal musical score, it should keep you entertained for some time."

Featuring out-of-this-world graphics taken from actual Hubble Telescope imagery, Fling Pong -The Planets takes you to another galaxy of arcade fun. The object of the game is simple; bounce a ping pong ball toward a wall of target holes in an attempt to get the ball in the hole. In "The Planets" the target holes are represented by the 8 planets of our Solar System (sorry, Pluto). Early game play presents the Planets in beautiful static imagery, with the game progressing through waves of dramatic planetary motion. Skilled players are aided by the later availability of "Free Shot Rockets", guided missile ping pong balls with an uncanny ability to track planetary motion.

Fling Pong -The Planets features include:

- 32 unique levels of mind-boggling arcade challenge organized over 8 Stages

- Gorgeous graphics based on actual Hubble Telescope imagery

- A dynamic musical score featuring excerpts from the renowned classical score Holst: The Planets

- The ability to navigate the game via stages, with individual high scores for each stage.

- The Open Feint social gaming platform, including high score leader boards, achievements and friend-to-friend integration through Facebook and Twitter

- Sound and Music volume controls

0/5 stars

Lame not worthy of one star

:
Way toooooo easy. There are better games than this one!!! DELETE

0/5 stars

Pointless

:
The one and only reason to play is for the Openfeint achievements, once you have those or if you don't care, you might as well delete it. Looks like it took a whole six hours to make, with no gameplay variation. It's only "addictive" if you're a shill.

I suppose it would have been awesome on atari 2600, when the creators were in their prime... 30 years ago.

Would have been 2 stars until I saw Crane and Kitchen shilling their own game here.
