“Pong” became a huge success as the first commercially available game. Atari released a home edition, the final version of which was played on arcade machines. “Pong” started out as a training exercise for one of Atari’s employees and was later adjusted to make the game more interesting, like changing the ball’s return angle.
In this table tennis-like game, players try to defeat their opponents by being the first to gain 10 points. A player gets a point when the opponent misses a ball.
