Pong Multi Touch on Droid merging old and new tech

It seems like every few days another random Pong clone shows up in the Market, but it’s still refreshing to see someone take a unique approach. Greenrobot has brought Pong into the 21st century with multitouch control, allowing two players to compete using a single device.

Sure, its a bit gimmicky and it only works on the Droid or the Milestone, but we’re suckers for retro games and Pong is a total classic. In today’s world of mobile gaming, playing face to face sounds like a nice change of pace.

    Being honest, this game is probably the ONLY one I’ve seen that doesn’t look horrible.

    I mean.. Android Market games are just disgusting. I have yet to see an iPhone-quality (sorry, it’s true; have an iPod touch) game other than Buka (thought it’s sluggish COMPARED to the iPhone equivalent).

    You can play two-player already like this with one of the first apps I bought for my Android phone – Air Hockey. Pong does look pretty tasty, though – have to check it out.

    I’m curious if this would work on CyanogenMod. Does anyone know if 2.0 and Cyanogen use the same multitouch code behind the scenes?

    I tried to d/l but it looks like it’s only showing up in the 2.0 market.
