There's a hidden retro game in your Instagram DMs

A new hidden game has slid into Instagram DMs and I'm already addicted. Remember Pong? Well, this is essentially that retro classic with a Gen Z twist, using emojis instead of a ball – revolutionary, I know. I've already lost a few more minutes to this game than I'd like to admit, so now I'm passing the joy to you. 

While here at Creative Bloq, we're still mourning Y2K phone design, at least we can somewhat relieve our flip-phoned pasts with this silly little mini-game. If you've got a few minutes to spare and an aptitude for retro mobile games, you're definitely on to a winner (just be warned, it's very addictive).
