Designing a Tiny Game of Pong for a Tiny Screen
The Apple Watch's watch crown shows off its vintage gaming capabilities
A “new” game uses the Apple Watch’s sleek UI to expand and build upon the beloved classic Pong. For the first time, A Tiny Game of Pong brings the ‘70s game to a screen suited for the wrist.
A Tiny Game of Pong features responsive digital crown controls. Apple’s repurposing of the watch crown (the dial usually used to set the time) as a scrolling tool is one such example of how designing for the small screen presents interesting challenges and new opportunities for interfacing with devices—a phenomenon we explored during PSFK’s Watch Week.
