@Poli, I know how challenging it is at the moment. I was thinking about maybe moving the bumbers up a little and maybe widening the paddle at bit.

@Poli, I put a little more distance between the bumpers and the paddle to allow for a little more reaction time; plus, I increased the speed of paddle movement.

Maybe use the mouse as input and not the arrow keys. Just simply have a set y axis and take the mouses x axis.

@Spilli, I feel that if I allowed mouse control, the game would be too easy. I migh consider slowing the game down just a touch more; but I do not want it to become boringly slow.
