'A Tiny Game of Pong' is a classic arcade game with a modern twist. While the original Pong game may have wowed consumers in the 1970s, the game has lost much of its appeal in the modern age. Now the game has been reinvented for the 21st century in the form of a fun smartwatch application.

A Tiny Game of Pong brings the 1970s arcade hit to the Apple Watch in a fun and interactive way. To play the game, players use the digital crown to move their paddle back and forth. There are two game modes to choose from, including arcade mode and classic playoff mode. For those who take Pong seriously, the game allows players to track their high score and their rank on Game Center.

The application demonstrates how retro games can enjoy a modern revival through the use of new technology.
