If you've been playing video games for more than a few years, you've probably at least heard the name "Pong" before. Atari's Pong® is the first video game in history to truly become commercially successful. Pong® is a simple game using analog circuitry and black and white graphics. It is a tennis simulation. The court is a black screen, the two sides separated by a dotted white line going down the middle. You control a paddle represented by a white line. One paddle is on each side of the screen, player one on the left, and player two on the right. Each players' scores are displayed above their paddles.
