    Filou HB has released Pong for the DS, a new homebrew version based on the famous classic of the same name. Give the game a whirl and check out some video game action, 1972 style.

    Im the guy that posts homebrew, so i get the pleasure of deciding what i think is worthy of posting.
    Apparently, this game is not up to your high homebrew standards. These days, homebrew projects are more and more scarce, so i welcome new additions to the library.

    This is a new release, so im sure there is room for improvement- such as the AI and difficulty.

    i'm actively awaiting your release of pong.. put your skills where your mouth is son.

    i'm happy to see that someone worked on a new pong port, even tho we have a few from gba to ds. it is always possible that this developer will go on to do greater things with the ds. its sad that ds homebrew's "golden age" is over but i still have hopes that many projects will get some updates (hint-hint--- another world ds, flash back ds, ds pack, snemulds, neods, etc.)

    thanks for the news, vato.

    Retro games are always awesome (and welcomed) no matter how simplistic they are.

    It's like hanging out with your grandpa

    This is something that I was working on a while ago that I never finished because I got bored with it. It's Magnavox Odyssey for DS. Similar to pong. http://dsgamemaker.com/forum/download/file.php?id=7150

    If you want me to make a plain old pong game I will...

    How about we have a vote on it? I'll open a poll thread and everything, since the news is not just for you, but is for the entire site.

    We'll see what the entire site thinks, okay? :)

    Well then feel free to make and release stuff you think is better.

    You came in to a homebrew news post insulting it's quality.

    What the hell kind of reaction did you think you were going to get?

    Waving to black people in the hood in my car.
    Does it support 2 player? Like one person could use the d pad to move and the other could you the abxy buttons to move.
    I could've sworn Atari's Greatest Hits had pong on it, though. Oh well, thanks.
