by coasterspaul - Mini LD 58 Entry

On a basic level, this is a circular version of pong. To make up for not having an AI opponent, however, you're given two paddles. Your goal is to keep the ball contained for as long as possible. The difficulty can be changed by changing the paddles - this feature took the most time to implement, and it's the main improvement over my original Containem, besides being 3-D.

3/31 - UPDATE: Arrow key support added to the mouse wheel support!

Sadly, the controls don't seem to work for me ;(

Sorry, but thanks for the feedback @Tijn, I'll try to make my code less mouse-specific next time.

I just found out the arrow keys do work :)

It's a pretty cool game, paul. It's more difficult than I thought at first. Maybe its an idea to add left & right arrow support as well? Just map the left arrow to the same thing as the down button. I think that would help me at least.

Really well made. I included it in 6 of my Mini LD #58 compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :)
