CodeJam entry (Pong)
theangryepicbanana (1635)

For the 4th codejam competition (challenge was to make a game in the terminal), I decided to recreate the game Pong. It is single-player only, but does have a computer player.


  • "w" / up-arrow = move paddle upwards.
  • "s" / down-arrow = move paddle downwards
  • "1", "2", "3" = set game speed to "slow", "normal", or "fast".

Any feedback would be appreciated!

It runs faster and is a bit less jittery.
