The game is simple and easy to play. Simply place your finger on the screen and slide it around to move your paddle. The direction and speed that the paddle is moving when it hits the ball determines the speed and direction the ball takes. You can also put spin on the ball by moving the paddle quickly in the direction you wish it to spin as you hit the ball. Being that the name of the app is World Cup Ping Pong, in each game that you play, you get to choose which country you want to play for from the eight country flags displayed.
