Hello, and welcome to the latest game by Rave Radbury
: Ultimate Pong Coach
The year is 197X, the place is Small Town, USA
You are a disgraced super-star athletics trainer, ousted from the professional sports world for underhanded practices and possibly cheating (gasp!). Once at the top, now you're at the bottom, with no cash, and no glory. What's more, you've been banned from training any professional athlete.
Down and out, it appears to be Game Over. But then, in your darkest hour you discover the underground world of competitive Pong. This may be your last shot.-Find a Pong prodigy and groom them into the Ultimate Pong Superstar!
-Use underhanded practices to get advantages over opponents!
-Participate in tournaments hosted in 70's basements!
-Create training programs that can be enacted during matches (special moves)!
-Watch your protege win matches of Pong!
-Train your gamer to fit your strategy! Faster paddle movement, quicker reaction time, even larger paddle size? All of these and more can be effected with your rigorous (and dubious) training!
-Enter international and foreign leagues, where the rules of Pong aren't quite like they are back home!
-Is a Pong Coach even a real or useful occupation? Of course not! This is ridiculous!
The current team consists of Cobralad and myself, but in the future we will be adding more members as the need arises.
