Theres a very big problem in this games in that its simply not fun. Everything is fading in and out in a graphical "eyestrain" and it all just doesnt work right. The game and controls play like slippery soap and the bouncing off the board is incredibly sporadic and unperdicatble. Plus, it takes about 15 extra seconds to retry again! Heres a pointer: give the option to submit instead of just having it pop up! I understand that you may be trying, but you can make this much better before submitting. So, long story short: good try, but you have a long ways.
Here's an idea. Don't start the game till the various items have faded in. Also, when the paddle resizes, how about it stays visible?
