Atari and developer Graphite Lab are bouncing with joy over qomp2, the artful sequel to the seminal classic Pong, the game that started it all. Since its launch on February 20, critics and fans have been ping-ponging around this unique narrative-driven adventure-puzzler where the simple back-and-forth action from Pong is reinvented as a story about self discovery and finding one’s purpose. You can see what some of those critics had to say in the trailer above.

qomp2 captures the simplicity of Pong by giving players only two buttons to navigate a series of labyrinthine levels packed with “harder than they look” challenges. Stepping into the spherical body of the renegade runaway, players will ping-pong their way through the dangerous, minimalistic world of qomp2. With a variety of enemies and bosses helping to mark the journey, the escapee will adventure through 30 challenging levels across four distinct worlds.

Staying true to its indie roots, qomp2 adds new types of puzzles and enemies and an innovative new game mechanic — a second button! In addition to the original button that shifts your direction 45 degrees, this additional button propels you forward with a dash. Armed with only these two simple moves, players will put their problem-solving skills to the test as they navigate environmental puzzles while avoiding traps in order to make it to the next level.
