Circular Pong

My January entry for One Game a Month. Coded in a few hours the day before the end of January; moving house made for an awkward games development schedule! I needed something so simple to implement it could be done completely in a very short period of time. The simplest game imaginable? Pong. Simpler still? Pong with only one paddle.

The result is actually quite playable, even if its depth and longevity leave a little to be desired. There was no time to develop anything beyond the core mechanic, but as a minute or two's timewaster it's still kind of fun. Aside from the default left/right key controls, I've added in some mouse controls that'll be usable on mobile - I'll build it for Android and put it on Google Play soon where its extremely casual nature might make a little more sense.
