Don't be fooled, Super Ping Pong Trick Shot is entirely and unabashedly all about trying to get a ball to land in a cup. What it sets out to do, it does right. It's not particularly exceptional in any way, however the basic concept is addictive enough to overlook the bland visuals and clustered user interface. The range of levels to play across multiple modes and the inclusion of both touch-screen and gyro control options are an added bonus. If you want a game that you can enjoy in short bursts in between time consuming titles, Super Ping Pong Trick Shot will do the job. Don't expect it to work wonders, just enjoy its simplicity for what it is.
Super Ping Pong Trick Shot is a fun arcade-style release with plenty of control options so that you can have a go at it no matter where you are. The premise is simple and to the point, but sometimes that's exactly what you need to relax and unwind.
Offering a rather robust challenge mode, a score attack, and local multiplayer, there was more to this little game than I could have imagined. Unfortunately the simple game mechanics and repetitiveness start to run thin sooner rather than later. This is one you'll end up putting down way before you see everything it has to offer.
Overall I’d say I was very pleasantly surprised with Super Ping Pong Trick Shot but it helps that I walked into the experience with no expectations whatsoever. For games of this type I’ll say that it is in the upper echelon for effort expended on a simple idea and that obviously a good deal of care was put into making the most of the niche genre this would represent. While I wouldn’t heartily recommend the game to probably anyone if you’re looking for something a bit different that is inexpensive to occupy a little bit of your time, and it sounds interesting to you, I’d say that there are worse ways to spend your money.
Super Ping Pong Trick Shot is a fun little physics game with a decent local multiplayer mode. There’s not much to this game outside of completing every single player level and their optional objectives, along with trying out the hectic multiplayer mode with a friend, so you’ll get a decent challenge out of it that’s well worth the $5 price tag.
Super Ping Pong Trick Shot is not the most ambitious game around. That said, in its naked simplicity and disregard for the technical capacities of the Nintendo Switch, the game's puzzles are well designed and can get the player somewhat addicted into fulfilling its challenges. Audiovisual presentation and half of its control schemes aside, this can be a fun experience for a while.

And, that’s it. Super Ping Pong Trick Shot certainly has an addictive gameplay loop but it exists within a mediocre experience that fails to ever truly engage and maintain your interest. Even Paper Toss is more entertaining, however mindless it is.
Super Ping Pong Trick Shot is a game you probably wouldn't even buy on a mobile device to waste a bit of time, let alone a dedicated gaming system. It's cheap, but so are some other eShop titles and your money is better spent elsewhere.
