Cyberpong VR

cyberpong vrPong has seriously come a long way since its inaugural launch in the 1970’s … enter Cyber Pong, by Colopl NI, Pong for the next generation.

You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to work out what’s involved here however it isn’t just any old normal game of pong. The basic structure of the game is that you’re on one end of a rectangular room controlling two paddles.

You have to use the paddles to deflect a ball into coloured blocks that are inching their way down the other side of the room. If the blocks get to the centre its game over folks. These blocks don’t just look pretty for no reason. No sir their colour reflects the action they will take when they are hit for example green blocks will spawn an additional ball and light blue blocks require two shots to knock them out.

Although levels start off fairly easy at first it soon becomes a lot more challenging as the speed of descent increases along with the number of balls! Thankfully there are power-ups to help you when things start getting a little too stressy including a larger paddle, gravity gun or even a rocket launcher.

Virtual reality pong

There a various game play modes offered to you in Cyberpong. There’s the basic staple, the single player endless mode where its about how long you can survive for. The good news is there also a multi-player mode (fairly rare within the VR gaming sector). This takes the competitive nature of the game up a few levels. The most interesting feature of multi-player is the fact you get to see the position of your opponent’s head and hands; you can literally see the anger of them losing a point when they’ve missed a ball; although we don’t condone smugness.

cyberpong vr As you can see from the screen shots the graphics are futuristic and well-polished set in a Tron like environment. The game play is also further enhanced by some pumping electronic 80s music. The virtual reality feel to the game is fully immersive and thankfully does not cause any unwanted feelings of nausea.
