Mac game publisher
is once again appealing to hardcore gamers with
a string of announcements
made at last month’s E3 Expo in Los Angeles, but that doesn’t mean the company is giving up on casual gamers, not by a long shot. MacSoft has announced the release of Pong, one of the classic remake games that MacSoft licensed last year from Hasbro Interactive. The game was developed for MacSoft by Metis International.
MacSoft marketing manager Cindy Swanson said that the company is excited to bring such a well-known game and classic property back to the Mac.
“The first game of head-to-head competition is back and better than ever,” added Swanson.
Pong has been totally rebuilt from the ground up with a new 3D engine that sports animated colorful graphics. The game features twenty levels, power-ups, secrets, and multiplayer action for up to four players that include various cooperative and competitive modes.
Pong carries a suggested retail price of US$19.99.
Times have changed in the year since MacSoft indicated it had secured a multi-title license deal with Hasbro Interactive, which was first announced last July at Macworld Expo in New York. Since then MacSoft’s parent company Infogrames acquired Hasbro Interactive.
