Atari's Unique New Concept....
Pin-Pong is so unique, its in a class by itself. In fact, its the only video game on the market that simulates the play of the classic pin-ball machine. Realistic video motion and sound is generated by a specialized computer designed specifically to make the game attractive and reliable. And because the game is stimulating, Pin-Pong is irresistible to players of all ages. It literally invites players to "try their skill" time after time. The Pin-Pong ball is generated by a patented motion circuit, and each target is surrounded by one or more zones that determine the direction of the bounce.

Realistic Video Action…
In Pin-Pong, a gravity algorythm accelerates the ball downward to give realistic pin-ball play on the screen. The ball flipper is genuinely unique to video games and in the normal position, they angle downward toward the center of the screen. When the flipper buttons are pressed, the lower flipper image is blanked and a short time later another image appears, this time as a straight vertical line. The timing used in the flippers gives the illusion of continuous motion.

Pin-Pong: Attractive and Innovative…
Pin-Pong is offered in distinctive, attractive cabinet, with colorful coordinated graphics. The cabinets are tailored to fit each type of location, making the game ideal for virtually any type of location. Pin-Pong has been engineered and tested, inside and out, for maximum player appeal. The video screen is always in motion to attrackt the first-time player and, the magnetic action assures repeat play. Today the sky's the limit when it comes to Atari's inventiveness.

Pin Pong ist das erste Flipper-Videospiel.
