PONG extreme is a cross-over of Space Invaders Extreme and Pong. The music, graphics and the display (in later versions) of PONG extreme change according how will you perform, similar to Rez and Space Invaders Extreme.
This game supports, but does not require, the Taito Paddle Controller for Nintendo DS.
