Top Critic Average
Pong Quest overachieves and winds up delivering a top-notch game of Pong while also paying tribute to and expanding upon dungeon-crawling RPG tropes.
While unique twists on the Pong formula make battles enjoyable at first, the repetition quickly wears on the experience
PONG Quest is a delightful game that masterfully combines retro gameplay with a dungeon crawling RPG formula. It may not have the most stylish visuals or long-lasting gameplay yet it remains a highly enjoyable and charming take on a timeless classic.
PONG Quest is a surprisingly solid PONG game, but not a solid RPG game. It's a fun experience that I'd have trouble recommending if it wasn't only $15. If you're looking to burn a few hours during the quarantine, you could do a lot worse than PONG Quest.
I never thought a mix between PONG and a dungeon crawler would work, but PONG Quest proved me wrong. It’s a fun and accessible little game with a fun gameplay loop and lots of unlockables, but this is definitely best enjoyed in smaller doses.
PONG Quest mixes the classic PONG formula with RPG gameplay – it sounds like a weird mix, but it actually makes for a pleasantly enjoyable experience. Sure, it can get a little repetitive in places and the visuals are a bit too simple in design, but it still has this undeniable charm that’ll keep you hooked in until the very end of your quest. Who would’ve thought that PONG could make such a quirky yet fun return to player’s screens in 2020?
Pong Quest is an interesting concept that really shines when played along with your friends: despite the lack of variety and depth, this reinterpretation of a legendary brand can be a really fun game to be played in local multiplayer.

Pong Quest brings back fond memories of Atari's roots, but this simplistic package doesn't have the depth or complexity to stun modern audiences.
Considering their amazing catalog, I'm not sure why Atari keeps trying to make 1972's Pong relevant for modern gamers. Pong Quest is a clever, valiant run at it, aided by solid controls and some decent multiplayer life. But it's still just Pong, and the game is at its best when they help you forget that.
Pong Quest adds an interesting dungeon crawling twist to the classic title but doesn’t do enough to make itself a must play.
