Crash! (Mar, 1986)
I loaded Ping Pong and immediately thought a Commodore 64 was attached... the sound on the game is brilliant, amazing — it defies all adjectives. Excellent drum beats, cool synth techniques: Wow! The game itself is very original and kept me compelled for ages. Imagine seem to be taking the software market by storm this year, I just hope they can keep it up! The table tennis table is well laid out in true 3D fashion and the game includes lots of nice features — apart from the usual definable keys there’s a most exciting two player option and five levels of difficulty. Imagine seem to push the Spectrum to its limits with every game they bring out, goodness only knows what they’re going to put on the 128K! I would recommend any arcade freak to buy Ping Pong at what is a very cheap price for a game of this quality on the Spectrum — and if you like adventures just buy it and dance to that groovy beat...
Apart from the lose of colour, this Spectrum version is as good as the C64 game - if you're a fan, don't hesitate in saying 'this one please' to the shopkeeper.

But if you persevere and learn the basic skills, you can get yourself embroiled in some sweaty situations requiring a pretty whippy wrist action. I wish you well - it's a smashing game.

Wer technisch ausgefeilte Sportspiele mag, wird von „Ping-Pong“ sehr angetan sein. Das Spiel macht auf den ersten Blick einen etwas simplen Eindruck, sorgt aber für beste Unterhaltung und motiviert längerfristig. Ein origineller Tip für Turniere im Freundes- und Familien-Kreis.
