Basic Pong

by TimBeaudet - Mini LD 58 Entry

This is an extremely basic version of the classic, Pong. This MiniLD served not as a purpose for my creativity, but for motivation to test my TurtleBrains (C++/OpenGL) framework on both Mac/Windows. I created the project from scratch and learned a few weak points of the framework and will improve upon those for the future, all in all a successful project in my eyes.

The game is never ending and requires two players. I did not spend any time tuning the ball speeds or paddle speeds so it may lack "feeling". But my objective for the project was completed on the technical side. If you could download and let me know if it runs for you or not, it would be great to have this feedback above all others.

On my Windows 8.1 PC, it crashed immediately... then I changed the compatibility versions, and it finally ran.
