    I remember this. It’s like Pong but with semi-fighting game elements.

    This game is sick. Easy to play, hard to master. Playing with friends can quickly evolve into a super intense, adrenaline-fueled game of hot potato.

    It’s too bad it’s a Sony exclusive now. This game is simple enough that it could easily multiplatform onto everything and have cross-play multiplayer on top of that. Guess the rest of us plebs are stuck with Disk Jam for all that’s worth.
