ClassiPong: a Free and Simple Pong Game for the iPhone

The world of video gaming has advanced exponentially over the last few decades. Nowadays you can manipulate the on-screen action with your own movements, rather than needing a physical controller.

But if you’re an old school gamer at heart, and your iPhone happens to be jailbroken, chances are you’ll love this next jailbreak app. ClassiPong, if you couldn’t tell by the title, is a classic pong-style game for your iPhone…

ClassiPong holds true to the original with a simplicity-factor that allows you to pick up the game and play at anytime. With no settings to configure or options to choose, you can really tap the ClassiPong icon and be playing within seconds.

Perhaps that’s what I liked most about the game. (What else is there, anyway?) If I’m in line at the bank or in another circumstance where I need to kill time, I’m not looking to tap through 4 or 5 menus or wait on loading screens. I just want to play the game.

That being said, ClassiPong has 0 features. Tapping the game’s icon reveals a tacky splash screen for a second or two, and then the game begins. Your pitted against a computer opponent, ]and first one to 10 wins.

While I love the game’s simplicity, I wish the computer offered a bit more of a challenge. After the first few rounds, I was able to consistently beat the computer without getting scored on. If you want to try your hand at ClassiPong, it’s available in Cydia for free.
