Quick play didn't work for me.

 

Downloaded and it ran fine. Paddle control is very difficult. Background grid is helpful to the player I suppose, but unappealing to my eye. NPC paddle plays well -- I didn't score at all.

 

Paddle control is the most serious problem, imo. Possible improvements off the top of my head:

 

1) motion involving acceleration -- ramp up/down quick, player can still 'pulse' the arrow key to move with limited velocity. 

2) use the mouse to control the paddle position (cursor and/or scrollwheel)

Thank you for your feedback. I was thinking to implement the posibility for the player to choose if he want to play against AI or against human.
