Rong is Round Pong, to see if I could do it. Super simple game. You are trying to keep the ball away from the blue zone. The game gains speed in time, so you will die eventually. The goal is to survive as long as possible.

Space: Start game/Play again
Esc: Quit
Right: Turn clockwise
Left: Turn counter-clockwise
F: Turn FX on/off
M: Turn Music on/off

Submit your scores:<your name>&score=<your score>

I know the game itself was supposed to submit the scores, but this is so simple a game (less than 200 lines of Lua code) I didn't want to put net code in it.

Good for a small little game like itself, however I would certainly like the game a lot more if there were some sound effects.

3/5 Stars.

Really nice game, it got me hooked for a while trying to get better scores. Probably going back to ir later.

Had fun playing the game, the music was good too. The idea is solid and works well for a highscore based game.

162 - does that make me first ?
Cool game, great music. The Win32 and win64 versions didn't work for me I get a weird blue windows box saying your computer cant run this application. Running windows 10. I had Love lying around though could run the .love version ok.

Thanks automatonvx! I tried the Windows versions, I they didn't work. Weird. Before upload they worked. Anyway, I'm updating them. They should now work.

Thanks for the heads up!

You have time also to put a the code to upload the score to the statistics page. The code is so simple:

include this on the begining of the code

local socket = require "socket.http"

include this after "if dead and not isgoing then"

you should include a part were you gets the name of the user and store it in variable name. And it is all. :)
