New Addiction?

New Addiction? You bet. 3-D Pong using shockwave. It's pretty sweet. I feel like I should be listening to the soundtrack of "Tron" while I play it.

I think it's horribly obvious that the computer cheats a lot. *grumble grumble*

Oh yeah, I can feel the burn already. This is soooo good. Thanks!

Reminds me of Shufflepuck Cafe!

i'm officially putting in my request for i.q. points lost. time i can spare, but i was saving my points to buy a set of steak knives.

Oh, I linked this in my second "What I did during my MeFi vacation" post.

I can beat the computer. neener neener. It usually takes around 440-450 points to beat it. Then again, I lost one where I scored 465 to the computer's 472.

Dang, I couldn't be a goalie in the NHL. I keep getting beat in the corners. Ugh.

Well, there goes the rest of my free time.....

The game's easier if you compile code or do something processor/hard drive intensive since it'll slow down on the client-side. Hehe.. Just a thought.

And this game has basically been the source of non-productivity for about 3 coworkers at my office since I emailed it to them last week.

Someone has to say it.. but 'not as good as the original' ;-)

Is it me, or does the computer get 40 points per win and the user only 20 points? Damn technology.

The 40/20 split is real. Keeps it challenging, eh?

what about your high scores? i just got 464. i lost 3 (or was it 4) points the whole match. my previous best was 430, but i usually score in the 250 range. job? what job?

My best so far is 513. The computer got 337.

I think my best so far is 0, but I might be exaggerating. I only played three-quarters of a game because I didn't win a single point.

If you played past the first ball, you scored. Serving the first ball gets the human player a single point. The computer receives no points for scoring.

See, you're doing better than you thought.

The computer cheats.
