This is my entry into the Medialess Challenge set on February 2007 which was to re-invent a classic (rather than remake). This has turned into quite a fun game!
This game is not called Pongish - as I keep typing it!
How to Play
Player 1 uses left shift/ctrl and player 2 uses right shift/ctrl. This will move the paddle up and down its arc. Currently there are no options to set controls yourself - this will be in future versions. Score points by getting the ball off the side of the opponents screen edge (eg, player 2 scores by getting the ball off the left of the screen). No points if the ball drops down the gap between the floor and the screen edge

This game is configured to run at 800x600x16 - so it should run on any machine - as long as you have the latest version of Direct X 9.0c.
