Also known as Table Tennis, this Shockwave game is from the folks that bring you the websites Mini-Clip and Shockplay. The game plays exactly like any ordinary game of Ping Pong, with you playing against one of three selectable computer players. The AI is a formidable opponent—either that or I'm a lousy one—therefore you will have to be alert and play quite well to beat it. As far as gameplay mechanics are concerned, controlling the paddle is as easy as moving the mouse around and you'll find yourself putting some extreme spin on the ball early on in your game. The ball physics react realistically, if not a bit on the extreme side, but overall this game is a fine implementation of a classic Ping Pong game.
And if Ping Pong is your thing, there's a very good Japanese movie called Ping Pong that you might like to see. A group of students, from our Beginning Japanese class, got together to watch it following our final exam a couple of weeks ago. This well-made movie is about a high school table tennis club that competes in various tournaments, and it tells the story of two very gifted young athletes who grew up as friends. It's a heart-warming, feel-good movie that I highly recommend.
