Description: PingBall is an easy to grasp, physically accurate and intuitive crossover between racquetball and breakout. Your goal is to clear multiple levels by breaking bricks while swinging a racquet. There is currently 20 original levels design with difficulty and obstacles variation (even disrupting fans!). But it doesn’t stop there: after you complete a full round, the next 20 levels require bricks to be hit twice while their size gets smaller or pulsate, for a total of 120 different experiences! Some bricks have power-up like an extra ball, multi-ball, slow-time. ghost or gravity modifier. The game includes both a local and online Scoreboard per difficulty to track your improvements. It is an excellent workout and it is fun to play!

Review: PingBall VR is one of those sports, brick breaker games that gives you a good little workout and some fun at the same time. While basic it looks OK graphically and can make you feel part of the action. It has most of the usual things you would expect with this type of game from power-ups to slowdowns and even multi-ball. But this game is all bout getting the best score you can over and over again. Sadly this is where this game falls apart a little as it is just too hard! There are times the ball moves so fast not even Bruce Lee himself could have hit it! Also, the UI doesn’t feel natural and I feel it could have been made a lot simpler. I would try and grab this for half price as £3.99 is too much if you ask me, but it is worth a look if you like these Tron style sports games.
