home page icon Flash Bestiary / Classic Games / Ping


I made this simple Pong-like game to illustrate rudimentary game-programming for my Flash programming class.

It illustrates basic games states (intro screen, game play, game-over), paddle movement via the arrow keys, and collision detection using hitTest(). It also illustrates the use of a vector (vx,vy) to move an object, the use of functions, arrays, random numbers (to make a random bounce angle) and sound effects.
