Although Ploing isn't your average arcade game, it's still relatively easy to explain its appeal.
For gamers who like Arkanoid, Pong or Pinball, Ploing2 offers a blend of them all. By controlling your character, you move anywhere you wish on the screen trying to break blocks. The levels are much larger than your usual Arkanoid clone, offering multiple sections to break.
The power-ups you will find are definitely helpful, although many of them just boost your score. There are the regular split-ball and laser power-ups, which will add to your destructive force.
Visually, the game is quite good, relying on hardware acceleration for all the tricks and goodies. The game does suffer a bit of slowness, although with adequate power-ups, the game will run at higher speeds.
