First-person-shooter version of pong

Thirty-four years after it was first released, Pong is still amenable to innovation. Check out this mod: A 3D version of the game, where you try to put some english on the ball on all three axes.

Is this the first time this has been tried, or has it been done before? Probably done before, I’m guessing, but I’d never seen it!

(Thanks to Joey for this one!)
