Is this the most adorable thing you’ve ever seen on your wrist? Yes, yes it is. It’s the tiniest game of pong you ever did see, too.

Game developer Matt Wiechec has made A Tiny Game of Pong for the Apple Watch and it hits all the right nostalgic notes for ancient gaming fans like myself and retro-cool folks like you.

Check it out.

As you can see, the itty-bitty Pong game on Apple Watch is so cute. You play against the game itself — there’s no multiplayer that I can see — using the Digital Crown to move your paddle back and forth and keep that ball bouncing on the screen. Each time you hit the ball with your paddle, your Apple Watch will vibrate a bit with the haptic feedback. It’s pretty tactile and fun.

There are two game modes, Classic versus mode and endless Arcade, the former unlocked with an in-app purchase for $0.99. The same purchase also nets you the ability customize the colors with ten options to match your Apple Watch Sport band. Oh, and a special “supporter” badge for the leaderboards, which are connected to GameCenter for you competitive types.

You can even play the game standalone without your iPhone, too, which makes it a killer deal, for sure.

A Tiny Game of Pong is available free for a limited time.
