**MAKE SURE YOU READ THE DESCRIPTION IN GAME AND HERE FIRST PLEASE**
If you want to see some of the advanced programming that went into making this game work, take a gander through the various world methods. There's some pretty intense codes goin' on in those. Also take a look at how many variables that the game required for the different distance measurements, speeds, angles, and other values that get tracked. It's these conditions, variables, and advanced methods that cause the game to lag slightly at times unfortunately although IMO I don't think this detracts from the game's fun. I mention the bugs in the game notes.

A couple cool things about the game is that if your paddle is moving downward and if the ball is moving downward as well and they make contact, then the ball will increase speed and steepen its bounce angle. And the other way around too if the paddle and the ball are moving in the opposite direction. This makes the game much more realistic.

I hope everyone enjoys my game! And if you come across any bugs that aren't already mentioned or want to know how I made certain things work please let me know. Thanks!!

Very nice job. Like it
