Curveball Curveball takes the arcade classic Pong to the third dimension.

Two players hit a ball at each other with the goal of passing the other player's paddle. This takes place in a 3D corridor where the ball can bounce off the walls left and right, and the floor and ceiling. There's some physics engine built in that allows the player to give the ball some spin by hitting it with a moving paddle.

The human player in the foreground gets five lives, losing all will end the game. The computer player in the background gets three lives per level, taking all will beam you to the next level and make the ball and computer player faster.

Secondary goal of the game, besides surviving as long as possible, is collecting points that are awarded for spinning the ball, hitting the paddle in the center, and fast taking of lives from the computer player. Successful games will earn a place in the built-in high score list. [source:mobygames]
