Pong!

Author Comments

Has three different bot types to play against, easy, normal and hard. Can also be played with another human player. All criticism regarding gameplay/bugs is welcomed. Please don't murder me for the graphics.

Bug: game freezes after pausing and exiting to menu. Silly mistake on my part.

That's what I was going for, thank you!

Great sound!

aathishbaws responds:

Thanks! It's not my sound, I credited the artist you can check them out!

fist off the graphics are great for a fist game. second the ai is great (assuming that your using AI) either way this is a great game for a first one. Keep it up

aathishbaws responds:

Thank you! I programmed the AI from scratch. A lot of mathematics going on there. I wanted the different difficulties to be unique in behaviour and not just simple things like more speed, etc.
I'm still working on improving it further.

the first video game ever made was actually tennis for two in 1958 though it's easy to get the two mixed up. some give credit to pong being the first game and honestly I used to think that as well , .Pong is still one of the first video games though!

aathishbaws responds:

That's interesting, good to know!

The game works well for a pong game although I did have a few issues for when starting games the ball would bounce directly up and down and not towards me or the bot. The graphics are okay, nothing too much to complain about besides the fade from the edge of the ball where you can clearly see where it cuts off as a square instead of naturally fading into the background.

Over all, pretty decent

aathishbaws responds:

Thank you for your constructive critique! I did notice the ball bouncing bug early on, and tried a lot to find the cause but got nowhere. I hope to find it eventually. I noticed the ball's edge too and I am working on improving the graphics in that and other regards.

I will do a lot better next time.
