The Official ULTIMATE PONG thread - IntellivisionRevolution


Recommended Posts

Are there any options to how the paddle is controlled?


This would only apply to the classic single-axis pong variation but here are some ideas:

1) disc up/down - problem with this is its only a single speed so its a trade off being able to get there and precise movement

2) multiple speeds - from Intellipongola; paddle moves faster further along the disc; allows for four (or more) different speeds but may be unintuitive

3) discrete position - divide the screen into say 11 paddle positions (or 13 positions) corresponding to a disc direction

4) disc as rotary/spinner - paddle speed based on rotation; clockwise moves paddle down and counter-clockwise moves paddle up


I'm not sure how well using the disc as a rotary/spinner might work but I sure would like to see a simple proof of concept if someone has the time.
