If you're alone, play a computer opponent ranging from Kiddie to INSANE! Get a friend and grab your mallets to see who dominates the table in 2-player mode. Try off the wall banks & combos to spoil your opponent's defenses and be the first to score 7 points - just like in real air hockey!
You'll play with easy to control mallets that aren't too big or small and a puck that rockets across the table. The goals are sized to perfectly balance rapid game play and the challenge of the game. Advanced physics and air hockey sounds make the game act and sound like you're playing on a real table!

What's New in Version 1.18.1Tested on the iPhone 5S! This is a quick fix for a bug we accidentally sprinkled in on the last version. If you missed version 1.18, here's what was new:
HUGE UPDATE! Millions of thanks to the millions of Air Hockey players across the world! You want iOS 7...you want Air Hockey...you really want this update! Here’s the low down on the awesome new stuff:
- iPhone 5 support! Yeah, we know. The iPhone 5 and 5th generation iPod touch have been out for a while. We can’t tell you yet about the secret new game we’re working on, but it got in the way (big time) of you getting awesome Air Hockey action on your new widescreen device. Air Hockey’s been around since the beginning of the App Store (remember when it was the #1 paid game!?) -- it took some hammers and chisels to make Air Hockey perfect for the iPhone 5. Just in time for the new new new ones!
- Completely redesigned interface! Air Hockey’s old menu system for the iPhone and iPod touch was pretty boring. Ugly even. So, we ripped it out and completely started over. The new look on the iPhone and iPod touch is fresh, shiny, and (dare we say) way way better.
- Improved wireless 2 player games! You have a couple iPads around your house, right? Who doesn’t!? Grab them both and play Air Hockey against each other wirelessly. Since the Air Hockey table size changes quite a bit between the widescreen & non-widescreen iPhones and the iPad, you have to play against someone with a similar screen layout as you -- no iPad to iPhone 3GS games, that’d be silly! You can even do great stuff like play wireless games between Air Hockey and Air Hockey Gold. It’s like magic!
- Performance improvements! With some more work under the hood, our testing showed a 1-puck single-player game ran at 60 frames per second on the iPhone 5 using only around 3% of the CPU. Our custom physics engine is still running at 1000Hz (that’s 1000 times a second!) for the best Air Hockey on iOS! Crazy!
- Squashed some bugs & probably sprinkled in some new ones. Line 2550 in the main game file really needed some work.
- New icons! Ok, this isn’t earth shattering, but we want the icon to look great on your device. The Air Hockey icon looks awesome on your device. Beautiful corners - we have ‘em.
- Cleaned up some ads. Not so exciting, but we have to pay the bills (anyone else have twin babies at home?!). We got rid of some old ad networks.
- Dropped iOS support for everything before iOS 4.3. This is a requirement to support the iPhone 5. We really love our players who are still rockin’ their original iPod touches, but we have to move on. (Psst! Get a new iPod touch - they rock too!).
If you like Air Hockey Gold, please take the time to give us a nice review. It really helps.
