It’s been 40 years since Atari released the first Pong game, and to celebrate the milestone, the company just released the first official Pong game for iOS. Called Pong World, the title delivers a new way to play the classic arcade game, in addition to a colorful new look and a whole host of new features.

Pong World is a new generation of Pong. As opposed to being just a paddle and a ball, there’s a whole lot more:

Explore Pong World by defeating opponents while collecting all five paddle creatures; Shaggy, Chompers, Sir Bouncelot, Razzle and Gnop to help you in your journey for domination.

Each paddle is equipped with unique powers and upgrades, and you’ll use them to tackle 4 different locations, each with a unique twist. Once you’ve completed those, there are other game modes to enjoy, such as survival and two-player battle.

Check out the game’s launch trailer below.

Pong World is a free game, and it’s available to download from the App Store now using the source link below.
