Default Can Alice be used to simulate 1-player Pong (2D) - 06-20-2007, 03:42 PM

I have some students for whom Alice might provide a good starting point for programming. I know they'd be very interested in developing "action" games, and would find it very motivational.
Is the Alice environment capable of being used to simulate the single-player pong game (2D)? The user would use up/down arrow to control a paddle on the left, and "block" a ball that bounces off the other three "walls". If the ball hits the paddle, it bounces. If the ball "hits" the left wall (misses the paddle), then the player loses a point.
