A two player arcade game

Behind every Pong game, hides a BreakOut game...

You thought that Pong and BreakOut were two separate games... but you thought wrong.

The hard truth is that every time you play Breakout, a Pong paddle withers and dies, in beat with the bricks.

It has come to this... Two paddles enter, one paddle leaves. To live to pong another day, you have to... break your opponent.

And then you must live with yourself.

To win, you must Pong Hard!

Please, think of the paddles.

Pong Hard:

* Inge B. Wang - code, sound
* Anne Sigrid Aarstad - code, art
* Vegar Guldal - music, sound, art

Played it by myself, so it was a personal achievement to keep the game going for more than 12 seconds. In part I was hoping that the two games would use the same ball, but it turned out pretty fun anyway.

Clever idea, too bad I can't try it with anyone right now. I especially like that it's played on an odd number of screens.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
