About Switch Pong
Sensory App House have created a highly accessible version of this classic tennis game. Table tennis, ping pong, paddle, tennis all feature batting the ball. Switch Pong allows the game to be controlled by touch/tap, pointing device, bluetooth access switches, external bluetooth keyboard, Microsoft Adaptive Controller or XBox Controller.
There is a demo mode, a bat practice mode, single player and double player options. There are settings to control the bat size, ball size and ball speed – you can also turn on or off the ping sounds.
Switch Pong has modes to support a learner developing single and double access switch use. You can use a wide range of access switches and also the Microsoft Adaptive Controller/XBox controller. Switch Pong also responds to screen tap, mouse pointer device as well as external keyboard control (space, enter, 1, 2).
Switch Pong has settings for a single or two switches, and also settings for “Tap” to change paddle direction and “Press Hold” to move and stop the paddles.
Please note that not all access switches have a “press and hold” function, but the Microsoft Adaptive Controller/ XBox Controller and a standard keyboard do have this capability.
