My First Pong

In my many years of programming, teaching computers and modifying games, I have never built a Pong. Now my life is complete. I hope you enjoy playing it for hours and hours with your friends. :)

Nice game, just a suggestion, but you might want to try to make the ball speed up after a certain amount of time. As it is, neither I nor my opponent can score.


Thank you very much. I plan to add .1 to the speed on every hit -- but I need to set it as a double first. I also plan on adding some additional skill features -- such as the ball bouncing a little differently depending on where you hit it on the paddles. I may introduce some other features later -- such as a moving wall in the center. Again, thanks for the feedback.


There is a ball-paddle interaction glitch that needs fixing. Qualify the paddle bouncing with the y direction of the ball with each paddle.


Correction: I meant ball speed (not y direction).
A new version of this scenario was uploaded on Thu Nov 07 16:39:19 UTC 2013 An updated code. I removed my "isTouching" because it doesn't seem to work on some versions of Greenfoot.
