Sweet, the soccer mode is like the "hockey" game on the Channel F and that is one of the games that my wife and kids like to play.  I like that version's ability to twist the player can control the 'goalie' separately.  Is there a mode that allows the paddle to rotate like on the Channel F?

 

Can't wait to see what all the other modes have to offer.

 

Although from watching the GIF it looks difficult to hit the ball, but I can't wait to give the Ultimate Pong a play.

The GIF was just a quickie to show off modes. This does play nicely. (imo)

 

No ability to twist the paddles, sorry.

Those privy to behind the curtain machinations may or may not be aware of what day it is, and may or may not be having a blast playing 4 players at once with 4 controllers. Beer pong has never been played like this before....or so I have been told...

Nice try, Rev. Clearly an elaborate April Fools Day hoax. Only a crazy person would release a Pong game ;-)

Another mode: Brick Pong

Break through opponents wall to score. Defend your wall.

Colors are customizable in every mode.

That's actually a good concept.  It's vertical Breakout!

Is there a Jai Alai mode? When my brother and I played on a classic pong home unit back in the late 1970's, this was our 2nd favorite mode (1st favorite was hockey mode which looks just like the last demo in the gif). If no Jai Alai mode, could it be added easily or is coding/production too far along.

That Jai Alai mode (handball or squash version) looks really fun too.
