My first game is finished. And I'm very proud :D It's a "pong"-pong game. If you want you can test it, and also give some comments on what I did wrong, or what was better to do. Here are the links: the game Thanx Spippo

looks nice, you should make the ball a sphere since collision wouldn't be hard because the walls and paddles are all straight and flat.

Hmm, good idea for version 2.
An other idea for version 2, is the use of structs (that is better, right?)

Yeah, but I think it's fun that it goes faster, otherwise it would be too boring. And the computer isn't always fast enough, so it's fair

I think the controls are way too fast. When you try to move your paddle up or down by just a small amount, you can't, because it shoots all the way to the other side. This makes adjusting your paddle to hit the incoming ball really hard.

If you slow the human paddle's speed down, the game would be much nicer.

You've done a good job! The source looks quite good, lots of comments too which is always a good habit to get into. As you say, you can now perhaps look into storing the characteristics of the players in a struct.

Keep up the good work!

You can also add some creativity to it, like adding a cool background, giving a cool look to the paddles and the ball, and addiing an animation when the player or computer misses the ball. Sorry if im putting too much on you.

If you press the keys just once, it only moves a bit. If you hold them down, the move more.

Hi there, like the game, very cool, quite happily spent 10 mins enjoyably playing that, i don't know if it's just me but i think i've spotted a bug for you to play with...

Every now and then the computer paddle moves off the playing board and sometimes even off the screen !

All in all like it, very addictive !!

Cheers,
Add
