    Well it looks nice, but just three things. 1) Play area is cut off at bottom. 2) Ball bounced against an invisible wall when I hit it. 3) The ball kept bouncing up and down in the same place eternally after my second try.

    Yeah, it's quite beta and very glitchy, as well as the playing area issue. I'm working on fixing all of the bugs and making it better.

    Thanks!

    Good work, I had the same issue with the ball bouncing up and down with no way to restart. Remember the old atari 2600 game combat, that would be great on the pre.

    I found a way to fix the issues with the game (Lag, glitches, etc) the only issue is that It kills the frame rate. It is still easy to play (Paddle movement is smooth) but the ball moves choppy.

    Do you think I should use that fix or try to make it not-choppy?

    I know that creating these homebrews is all in fun, but I think to truly have a usable app, it would need to have both of what you are asking, not just one.

    Sorry I'm no help in trying to help you fix the code that's causing the problem, but coming from a guy who would want to play it, I don't think I'd open it much if the ball moved choppy or if there was a bunch of lag.

    I would LOVE to see it running smoothly!

    I didn't like this app. The fact that you have to use your fingers to move the paddle isn't that great. My finger gets in the way of seeing where the ball is. Like others have mentioned, there is too much lag to properly play this game. Hope future updates make it usable.

    The code in this is from an open source game. The new version uses a different (and much more modded) open source code.
