Review: SPiN Galactic – An Addictive Ping Pong Game For Your iPhone

It’s often the simplest of games that are the best of games. I mean, look at Angry Birds – it doesn’t require any true smarts to be able to slingshot a bird into pigs, so what gives? What’s great with games like Angry Birds is the ability of the game to get its hooks into you as soon as you first crush those dastardly pigs. You’re going to keep picking up your iPhone to play Angry Birds. For many, it’s an addiction.

A game in a similar vein of Angry Birds is SPiN Galactic – probably the only ping pong game your iPhone needs. SPiN Galactic is described by its creators as a “fast-paced table-top action blends with a super-smooth touch interface for the kind of game dreamt up by aliens.”

The game combines standard ping pong gameplay but with a few additional twists. One such twist is the ability to earn “power ups” that let you plonk four different tactical insertions onto the ping pong board – just to make things a little bit more interesting. Hitting one of the four insertions will either speed up your shots, make your shots swerve, duplicate your shots to confuse your opponent, or create a wormhole that sends your opponents ball out of the game.

The game uses a knock-out tournament format and there is three levels of difficulty. It took me about 10 attempts to win on the medium level and I’m still nowhere near becoming the champion at the hardest level.

I’m going to keep on trying though. Watch this space!

The Verdict

At 99¢ picking up SPiN Galactic is a bit of a no-brainer. The game guarantees hours of fast paced and action packed ping pong goodness. Download it now from the App Store.

Rating: [rating:4.5]

  • Some bits of the UI are patchy
  • The crowd noises can get bit too much after a while

    Thanks for the review guys.

    We made an extra effort with the difficulty. We wanted to make it ‘learnable’. Winning in the lower difficulty is easy but you’ll have to learn and practice to win on the higher ones. It’s a game of skill and it’s possible to get really, really good. !;)
