Before anyone comments copyrighted, copyright law is difficult when it comes to games and defining the line between "cloning" and "copying" and technically this can be made if it doesn't infringe on the "Pong" trademark, i.e. using (next to) original graphics or using "Pong" in the name, which would probably bring Atari's attention. One example of this is the closure of Plasma Pong in 2007 due to the trademarked name being used in the title. [src]

 

The same rules apply to xat's snakeban and snakerace powers as Nokia owns the original idea and copyright only overs the code, the art and so on. So as long as the game remains snake-like and copies none of the original assets or doesn't pretend to be the original, xat is safe to do so. You might also say that snakeban and snakerace have the word "snake" in them. Well, Nokia have the name "Snakes" (in reference to games) trademarked due to the difficulties in getting the name "snake" because of how many products use this word, so doesn't really apply here. [src]

 

You can read more about copyright law and games and cloning here.

 

Now, related to the idea, I would not mind a few new games being introduced to xat and pong would definitely be an easy, simple and fun one to include.

This could be quite fun for having tournaments on Contests! Imagine how tense the final would be with a (purple) on the line. k0oupw.png

Very good idea, I think madball is a good name for it.

 

Of course I am biased because of my association with Game, but I think xat needs more game powers :$

Just to note, Zed said in the OP that this would be in "HTML", because he found some code online that's free to use. This would obviously have to be created by xat in their style and be in flash.

Good idea Zed. I think all of the game suggestions should be made. This would probably keep a lot of old users who are leaving.. 

 

Like gamebans, games in general. We need more xat games :(
