World Cup Table Tennis iPhone App Review.
In fact, World Cup Ping Pong comes to straight to your iPhone, you don't need to get out of that garage, but at least you get to play with a real opponent or practice with the computer, with this amazing ping pong game simulator for the iPhone and iPod Touch. With three gaming modes to choose from, the game is guaranteed to keep you wanting more giving you hours of pure fun and enjoyment.
In Tournament mode, you play against eight opponents from eight different countries in a tournament style mode, where you move on to the next round be eliminating your opponent. In the semifinals and final round, there are touch computer opponents waiting for you, so keep on your feet.
In Head to Head, you get to play the game with a friend on the same iPhone or iPod Touch, which seems a bit awkward, but the game offers no support for WiFi.
In the Arcade Mode, you get to practice and develop a game style. Play like in your old garage, where you have the other side of the table propped up against the wall, only this time the goal is to hit the circles that are displayed in various locations and in varying sizes.
Ping Pong is one of those oldies but goldies classics that you have to play whether you're any good at it or not. In fact, with the easy controls that fully rely on the iPhone's touchscreen features, it's hard not to like it. It's fully up to you to try to hit the ping pong ball while moving the paddle in the right direction. You can easily apply effects to the ping pong ball by flicking the paddle in the desired way. This is in fact the best advice we can give you to beat your opponent. Move him from side to side until he makes a mistake, but be sure to anticipate the same slick moves from him.
The graphics are propped up from earlier versions, with smoother renders and better motions. But where the graphics improved, the sound got even better. Everything from the sound of the ping pong hitting the table and the paddle, the game really tops everything else and brings realistic sounds from your garage to your iPhone.
World Cup Ping Pong comes from Skyworks Interactive, the development team behind other game simulators like Field Goal, 3-point Basketball, Airhockey or Horseshoes. They are all available at bargain prices in the AppStore.
