It is the classic “Pong” brother ; same gameplay, same graphics. Two players face each other by moving a paddle for each one by which to take and bounce a ball (which is actually square). This version of the For-Play also has a “1 Player” switch that turns the opponent’s half-field into a kind of maze.

The game cabinet is in excellent condition and is in the original version built by For Play. The coin mechanism still reports the quarter dollar label even if the mechanism has been modified and accepts Italians 100 Lire coins. The structure of the cabinet is made of wood, it is fitted with a real TV without its knobs and everything is covered by a glazed golden fiberglass structure. Obviously the style is 70s and is definitely a part of  videogames history.
