Flim-Flam is another pong variant for 2 or 4 players, with a special feature called "flim-flam".

Joystick controller allows players horizontal, angular and vertical movements of the paddle. Players can rush the net, miss the ball, retreat and attempt second hit. Ball may also be hit two or three times on each side of the net.

"Flim & Flam" buttons allow player to alter speed and course of ball.

The game offers three paddle sizes. As skill of players increase, paddle size selection can be reduced by choosinf either "expert" or "pro" sizes.

Flim-Flam was the first game released by Meadows. It also must have been one of the first pong game to allow the paddle to move in all directions (using a joystick).
