After being made to remove uPong from the appstore due to infringing on Atari's trademark "PONG", we finaly have a renamed version back on the store!

http://itunes.apple.com/uk/app/uboing/id475979638?ls=1&mt=8

Its easy to pick up, free, and available on both iPhones and iPads.
The aim of the game is simple, throw the pong ball into the cup to get through the level!
It gets progressively harder on the later zones, and more interesting, with various rotating, moving objects to get in your way! Also newly added in this version is a 2 player pass and play mode! Great fun with family and friends!

If any of you want to download and check out the game, it would be much appreciated :)

Here are afew screenshots aswell:

As in the edited first post, uPong has been removed from sale.. It was actually doing quite well aswell :(
Atari werent happy with the name uPong, with it infringing on their trademarked name "PONG".

Anyone happen to have any great names for me to change it to?

Generally abit demotivated and in need of an amazing new name to change it to haha :)

Although I have no name suggestions, hang in there - eventually this kind of thing tends to happen. (At least for you it was with a big name company like Atari - when it happened to me it was a company that sold packaging materials XD)

Good luck with the name - something will come to you.

Peach :)

PS - Please don't let it be "1Ball-1Cup" XD

Despite how wonderful the name 1-Ball 1-Cup is.. i think i will have to go with something else lol :)

I guess getting a letter from atari is pretty cool, i was quite surprised when my friend rang me and told me to check my emails, exact words.. "dude, atari sent us a letter" haha.

Thanks for the suggestion Rodrigo, that isnt too bad!
Im thinking more along the lines of keeping the "u" infront of the word though, so maybe "uShot", or "uFling" etc..

One positive from this is that i can get the few fixes and updates that i was going to add on soon done now instead :D

Thanks for the encouragement everyone!

Thank for the suggestions Xenon! Some of them are pretty good, but to avoid the wrath of atari we decided to stay clear of anything even slightly similar to pong :P
Buuuut, our game has finaly been re-released as uBoing :)
Update 1.1:

- Name changed from "uPong" to "uBoing". Atari werent too happy
- New 2 player pass and play mode! Great fun with a friend!
- Various bug fixes
- Added buttons and notice screens to make the app easier to use
- a few level changes to improve gameplay.
