Storyline

Two players play a video version of table tennis. The ball bounces off the walls and the paddles. The paddles are controlled by the players by using the paddle knobs on the machine. When a ball gets by one player's paddle, the other player scores a point. When someone scores 11 points, they win and it's game over. Written by wvoutlaw2002@wmconnect.com

My favorite!

This game is so fun it's addictive! Has anyone ever played this? I could play it for hours. Here's how it goes: You see, on both sides of the screen there are these little paddles that both corresponding players can either move up or down in order to hit a little ball back and forth to each other, like in Ping-Pong. If either player misses the ball, he or she loses the point to the other player. It goes on like this until one player has eleven points and wins the game. Classic! Get a buddy and try it. It's really fun.
