Boundaries are the most difficult as they are dependent on proximity to the center point of a given object. Each section of alley has only a single center point, so depending on the direction of the L/R axis, checking if the ball is too far left or right might work for your alley list. The other alternative is to surround the alley with smaller objects, put them into a list, and not let the ball get too close to them using forAllTogethers.

You should also build a world list similar to your alley list for the pins, or they will never fall down.

You will need to have more control over the ball, so you should build seperate keyboard "while key is pressed" event methods for each direction(forward, left, right).
