The rules are simple:
- Use the mouse to move the paddle.
- Score three points to win.
- Click to restart after game over.

I'd like to think I learned my lesson since the first (very sloppy) version that I uploaded to this site nearly four years ago:
http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/557573

I would've also preferred that my next project had a bit more depth to it than a dime-a-dozen clone of a game that was made over 40 years ago. But, if you have any suggestions on how to improve this game, feel more than free to make your voice heard. Besides, other projects are already in the works, and will be released soon.

It's pong.
Revolutionary game.

About 30 years ago.

But still pretty good.

Thanks. In hindsight, I'm a bit disappointed at all the points I overlooked and left out (based on previous comments), but I will take all of this to heart in my next effort.

As much as I like that you made a fully functioning pong, this begs for some modern imagination. I guess if you just called it pong I'd be cool, but v2 makes me wish there was some twist to the game. Like Plasma pong.


falariem responds:

Yeah, I made an error in naming it. For it being "v2," I more meant that it wasr my second crack at it, a few years after the first attempt. Time kinda slipped away from me, and I haven't been able to work with AS that much in the interim.

my only complaints are 1. I'd rather be blue cause that's my favorite color so maybe, if you can, add an option to choose your color or colors( maybe add more than two colors) and 2. its to short maybe add more levels or the option to increase how many points to win and difficulty. That would increase the replay value of this game because as of now there's only a little replay value as I see it, but good job with the smooth animation and having all your buttons work properly. There's no music, but its pong so that's ok, users can listen to music of there own if needed but as far as I know pong never had music.


falariem responds:

All valid points. I won't be touching on this game again any time soon, but thanks for the feedback. It really applies to any game I make in general.

Well, the sound quality was boosted up a notch, but everything else was pretty basic. I don't think you be focusing on developing a pong game's AI but rather something else.

It's a great start, but I believe you shouldn't pour all your energy into this.


falariem responds:

Yeah, it was more a stopgap than anything else. The other projects I have planned are lot more involved, but are also a bit out of my league right now. Really, I'm only submitting this so I still feel connected to the community. Thanks for your feedback!
