2Ghz to play PONG

Author: Andy Hartwell


PLASMA PONG is a variation of PONG that utilizes real-time fluid dynamics to drive the game environment.

Last night I came across Plasma PONG. This version of the coin-op Atari classic adds real-time fluid dynamics into the mix, resulting in

It’s minimum system requirements are a far cry form the MOS 6502 CPU used in the Atari 2600. A 2.0 Ghz P4 or AMD equivalent & 128MB GPU is recommended, to cope with calculating the real-time fluid dynamics.

At only 7mb, it’s well worth a download, if only to play with the various settings in the sandbox mode to produce some pretty spectacular visualisations.
