Power Pong


by: Ben Johnson


As a beginning game designer it seems that creating a simple game of Pong is required as a right of passage. In this version of Pong you will battle against a simple AI opponent who will return any shot it can. To help you in your fight against this nefarious AI you can use various power ups that you collect by hitting the ball at them. Powers include the Grow box which widens your paddle, Tea Time which gives stops the ball and allows you to quick move in front of it in emergencies, and the dreaded Orange Shower which fills the screen with distracting oranges. Please note that there is no end to this game, you simply play until you have had enough.


  • W and S: Moves the paddle up and down respectively.
  • Q: Activate power up.
