“If you like movies, you’ll love Movie Pong,” said Dave Long, co-founder and CEO of Exponential Entertainment. “How many times have you quoted classic movie lines with friends or challenged friends to recall characters, actors, or movies? This is a game movie audiences already love to play. We gathered the best scenes and sounds and put it into a mobile game that makes it easy to challenge friends anywhere, at any time.”
