Ping

Ping! was a 2005 PC game from CC & SH. Ping! revolves around a character of the same name, who is a small, green ball. His girlfriend, Pingella, has been kidnapped by the Boxx Empire, and he must battle their forces to save her.

Gameplay[]

Players control Ping! with the arrow keys. Once he starts moving in a direction, he cannot be stopped until another direction is pressed. The space bar drops "Coin Bombs", which are small traps that can defeat enemies. Players can collect diamonds to receive points.

Development[]

The idea for Ping! was developed after Steven Hunt had read an article detailing that a Jaguar game called "Pong 2000" was supposed to be in development, where Pong was an anthropomorphic ball in a platforming environment to save his girlfriend. After the game apparently had not been released, he took the idea and went forward with it. Initially there was supposed to be a "prequel" game called Ping (without the exclamation point), where players knocked the character between two Boxx Soldier paddles, like Pong. Ping was scrapped after development on Shady's Poopong began.
