About The Game

Ping Pong is a table tennis-based arcade video game.

Ping Pong offers three different types of shot; Top spin, Back Spin and Smash. The actual game-play centres on shot timing and shot choice, with the players' bats moving automatically to track the movement of the ball.

In the single player mode, the player can opt to play the game on any one of five different skill levels.


Released in June 1985.

Also known as Konami's Ping Pong.

This game features Penguin (later renamed Pentarou) in the title screen and as a spectator. He is the main character in Antarctic Adventure and Penguin Adventure on the MSX and also appeared in many other Konami titles like the Parodius and Game Master series.
