Spong is a ping-pong simulation game that was released in 1993 in the United States. It was published by Pyramid software and runs on the DOS platform.
Spong has been designed to look like a ping-pong game being played in Space, which probably inspired the name, Spong. The background is dark, with only two pong paddles,
and the ball can be seen. The shape and color of the ball are similar to the image of the earth when seen from space. There are no characters, background graphics, or
music in the game. There is no save function in the game either, so the game ends when either player stops playing. The game can be played by two players using the keyboard.
There are three gaming modes to choose from- Random, slightly random, and out of control. The player can also choose the speed of the game which ranges from Slow motion to
insanely fast. The level of randomness chosen by the player will determine the unpredictability of the ball in terms of direction and speed, which is the only exciting factor
of the game. The ball can change its direction mid-course and the player needs to have a high level of alertness to hit the ball. The scores are displayed on the top layer
of the screen, with the left player’s scores displayed towards the left and vice versa. The game continues until either player decides to call it quits. The players can exit
the game at any time. Once the player quits the game, the final scores are displayed on a black screen with a ball orbiting a square/pyramid.
