Scenes

  2. A court scene, which contains the actual gameplay.
  3. An end game scene, which contains the results from the court scene.

The list of scene transitions:

Features

This Pong implementation contains the following features.

  • Each game lasts until either player receives the 10th point.
  • Both paddles are controlled by human players.
  • Ball velocity is increased on each hit with a paddle.
  • Ball velocity does not exceed the pre-defined maximum velocity.
  • Ball movement is being stopped for 30 ticks after each reset.
  • Ball direction is randomized from four different directions after each reset.
  • Paddles are returned to their default position after each reset.
