Dragon Pong has been described as it's creator as showdown see index in an online form, and broadly speaking that is what it is. Use arrow keys, the mouse or a joystick to line up the sound of the oncoming ball as your opponent serves it at you, then hit it back with up arrow, mouselcikc or a joystick button. Fail to hit the ball and your opponent gets a poi, first to 11 or 21 points is the winner.
Despite it's deceptively simple gameplay however, Dragon Pong has a number of very nice additions. Firstly, it is playable online only, making it the first game of it's type in audio to do so. Secondly, the game does have a few surprises to keep things interesting, such as the ability to get shields to protect your goal temporarily, or pick up the dreaded invisiball which will mean the first warning of the ball's position your opponent gets is the sound of it bouncing off walls. By far the most noticeable addition however is the extremely large amount of high quality sounds and music. Pick one of various crazy characters at the start of a match to have fun with, and should the ball go into the goal, don't just expect a rather dull point scoring noise since you could be treated to explosions, vandelism, or the sound of smackdown being layed. As well as the online feature, this give Dragon Pong a highly unique atmosphere and setting.
