"Ping Pong"

Cactus has released his first ever (?) sports game, suitably titled Ping Pong. Battle Dino, Bunk, Pasztor, Hoff, and Noir by pressing Z and sometimes the arrow keys!

Features: Original Mode and Realistic Mode.

Also, he has posted some tasty screens of his current works-in-progress, which you can (and should) check out here.

(Thanks, Rolf, for the Ping Pong history lesson!)

    Does the ping ponger get shot at the end?

  • Queen of shmup

    This is news! XD
    not really… Did I see this game like 1 or 2 months ago?
    game’s pretty fun. XD

  • Queen of shmup

    Maybe I didn’t see it in TIGSource though. Peace out.

  • Al King

    DB: Yes, and they stay dead every time you open the game subsequently. The moral is: don’t play ping pong.

  • Rolf Soldaat

    “Original” mode needs link to bruce lee playing ping pong with nunchucks.

  • BMcC

    **@The Queen:** I can’t be bothered to check other websites. :P

    **@Rolf:** Yes! You are correct. Fix’d.

    Very interesting game. Cactus should do more sports games.

    When I saw the image he drew for this game on his site, at first, it almost looked like the guy on the left was punching the other guy with boxing gloves. Well that is, until I looked at his other hand.

    But man, what if Cactus actually did make a boxing game? Now that would be pretty cool.

  • Queen of shmup

    @ BMcC: you are right, I was just saying :( but but but i saw it in in …

    @ falsion: remember that boxing game in atari? now THAT was a game, I can only hope for game like that.

    of course, I’m refering to this boxing game:

    My girlfriend was behind me when I downloaded this, and I set her up with a “Ohh Cactus is great! Game machines, but they are always though provoking or just plain fun”

    She actually stood behind me for the game to download and install so she can see it.

    5 minutes after, when she realized that the “Realistic” mode wasn’t a “realistic” counterpart to the “original” mode, but that it was still the same ping pong game, she left, thinking that I was fucking crazy.

    Thanks Cactus!

  • BMcC

    Yes! Cactus Boxing would be great. We’re going to be sleeping on the same couch the next week, so…

    **@ Gutter:** Haha, I dunno, maybe that was his plan all along. :)

    Then I’ll be sure to wake you up with some Cactus Boxing each and every morning ;)
