Recently I became quite interested in the classical video games that I played oh so many years ago. My son, who has just turned eight, was fascinated by my attempt to re-create the classic and amazingly cool Pong game. Before we knew it, we were elaborating on all kinds of neat stuff that we could put into this game. It was quite interesting to my son that I have to spend so much time writing code to make things work. It also came as a shock to him that we have pretty much rewritten the program at least 5 times. Having absolutely no knowledge in programming, my son actually spotted a bug that I was looking for in a bunch of spaghetti-code that I was hacking together to make a feature work. This was a way cool experience. I hope you enjoy the game as much as we did. (Mac Classic, Mac OSX, Win)
