AntiPong

icon A small game where you need to avoid everything - the exact opposite to Pong, developed with Fenix for GP32 and first adapted in 2005, now re-adapted to be fully functional on Dreamcast.

 

AntiPong screen 1


There are three modes of play available, and two difficulty settings for each mode. Your character in classic mode is a square dot and you need to avoid the rectangular paddles as in the old school graphics of the original Pong game. In Frozen mode your character is a baby penguin and you must avoid game icons. In GP32 mode your Character is a GamePark 32 and you must avoid the other handheld consoles. If you collide with any object or the edges of the screen you'll return to the game menu, your previous time and score is then displayed on the upper-right of the screen.

The original 0.6 GP32 version of AntiPong was developed by Chemaris, the game was originally adapted for Dreamcast by Wraggster in January 2005 (that version only had GP32 Mode available to play).

This release comprises of AntiPong along with DCEvolution's version of Chui's Fenix SDL Loader (FSL) from November 2004, edited to exclude the Fenix splash screen and jingle, so the game loads directly.

The controls for the game have been edited to be more user friendly, to allow all the game options to be available on Dreamcast, and to avoid inadvertently resetting the Dreamcast during play. The text within the game menu has been translated to English. Due to the alterations made to the game for this release, a download for the original GP32 version has been made available.
