Released in October 1974. Pin Pong was the very first video game that simulates the play of the classic pin-ball machine.

The ball is generated by a patented motion circuit, and each target is surrounded by once or more zones that determine the direction of the bounce. A gravity algorythm accelerates the ball downward to give realistic pin-ball play on the screen.
