i mean it air hockey what else?

Great start, a few bugs here and there(mentioned in comments below) but otherwise it is fine to do. I suggest making the board smaller as you can't see the full thing, and making the middle line visible, instead of an invisible wall.

Well, you've made a fully functional game, which is more than I can say for most other creators; I would gladly take "bare-bones and functional" over "broken with a million bells and whistles" any day of the week.

My one big complaint is that I wish the paddles and maybe the puck were just slightly larger. You have a lot of real estate here, and your paddle takes up so little space on the board that it makes it hard to get good contact with the puck. Another thing that I think would benefit your game is the addition of center and crease lines, just so you have a reference for how far your paddle is allowed to go up and down the screen—I personally had a hard time telling how far I could go from time to time, which really messed me up.

Aside from the minor glitch that causes the puck to clip inside of the opponent's paddle, you created something pretty solid here. The fact that the AI speeds up according to the force you strike the puck with is really something, and adds a bit more depth to the game than just "enemy player moves incredibly fast, and you can't score against it no matter what you do".

- Your AI isn't too bad, are you planning on using this to train it lol.
- The AI is good at blocking
- I experienced a game breaking bug where the AI slowly moved with the ball until it got itself stuck on the ball, the second time it happened I had just pushed the ball straight at it and it got stuck. This means the player is unable to continue without refreshing.
- The AI isn't so good at striking.
- The gameover screen appears to be slightly buggy. It displays the flashing "Game Over" in the middle of the screen just fine but also displays "GAM" on the right edge of the screen for some reason. No option to restart the game from this screen either.

is good
