Superpong  

Superpong was a one or two player contest. This game was an evolution over Pong that used variable ball speeds, angles and three paddles vertically aligned for each player. To further spiceup the game, the ball was served from random positions on the screen. Atari described Superpong as not easily mastered, but since it is a relatively unknown game, it was probably too hard at a time where ball and paddle games were losing their appeal. Pong competition was too fierce at this point in the coinop world for Superpong to make any sort of impact. The hardware featured a discreet logic design.
