    If someone were to go into a playthrough of Pong World with the intention of spending no money, they could, in theory at least, play forever. Granted, it would be the same level and modes ad nauseam, but free is free. However, those looking for variety and diversity in their games should look elsewhere. At its core, this is pretty much a reconfigured Atari 2600 experience, masquerading as something new.

    Pong World makes the bold attempt of trying to refresh an Arcade classic for the modern era, and while the fundamental concept is sound, the execution is terribly flawed.
