    1. The PONG typeface is Mecanorma’s Blippo Bold.

    2. Max, thanks for recognizing it! Added.

      For what it’s worth, Blippo Bold probably is a copy of the earlier Burko by David L. Burke. Okay Type shared a showing of Burko’s Bold and Shady styles in the 1969 Chicago 2 CSCA/STA Annual. As far as I can tell, the letters PONG, among many others, are pretty much identical in Burko Bold and Blippo Bold.
