Mario Pong is fangame created by Friendly Dictator (who published it as RetroMarioFan1985 on the main site) for the Minigame Competition #2 of 2016. It turned out as the runner up in the competition, along with Mr. Yoshbert's entry, Fight Tennis. At first, it plays like a clone of the 1972 arcade game, Pong, with the biggest differences being the graphics and sounds. Each time a certain amount of points are scored, however, changes will made into the gameplay. Eventually, Mario Pong's gameplay will be nothing like Pong.

On both the forums and main site, the author claimed the game to be just a clone of Pong. Many comments in the main site followed the joke, there was even a joke review submitted to the main site.


With two votes, Mario Pong tied with Fight Tennis for runner up on the Minigame Competition #2 - 2016. On the main site, Mario Pong has only received three reviews so far, one of which is a joke that treats it as a normal clone of Pong. In contrast, the other two reviews are more serious. One review praised the game for how it parodies generic fangames and changes over time, giving a final score of 5/10. The other review gives the game a 7/10, praising the game's creativity. Both criticized the game for its short length.

Mario Pong currently holds an average score of 5/10 on the main site.
