DESCRIPTION: A Bat-and-Ball game for the whole family. Like in Pong, don’t drop the ball if you want to win! This game system is a 40x40cm LED screen with four paddle controllers, allowing as many simultaneous players. There are two different levels of difficulty and up to 5 balls on the screen at once. The RetroBall is currently being funded on Kickstarter so head over there to support the project. A $109 will get you a kit to build the game on your own, add $40 and you’ll have the game system already built.
AMUSEMENT RATE: Hardcore retrogamers will definitely like the RetroBall. It’s old school and will remind them of the hours they spent playing Pong on their own, only this time they will be able to share their passion with 3 friends! For the rest of you, just keep your money and save up to get an iPad (or any other kind of tablet), you’ll get as much fun, more games and way more functionalities. I understand the whole retro-gaming culture, but at some point you just have to let it go and live with you time.
