I have played some pong programs before, albeit not many and not too many good ones. This one is the best I've found so far and I really like it. It uses the graph screen instead of the home screen so it is really smooth and looks cool. As mentioned in another review, this program doesn't have too many additional features and gimmicks but it is only 1000 bytes or so, so I'd say that is a good tradeoff. It is user friendly because it is simple but well done. Ok, so maybe it isn't original per se, because, well, is pong original? But, the maker was smart and didn't just make another stupid pong program. This is different, and fun. 11/10. You really should try this program. I am a novice coder, but I can appreciate the time and effort this took. Great program!

“Bounce” is a very addicting game, although it is very basic concept. All you do is hit a ball with a paddle (like “Pong” against a wall), but once you start, you can't stop! The graphics are okay, but are nothing special. There aren't any additional features besides the high-scores, but that also means that the file is only around 1000 bytes and doesn't take up much space. The only thing I would really like to see would be to have the ball speed up at later levels, but it's really not that bad as it is. It is very easy to play (left and right arrows are all you need!) Overall, I would recommend this game to everyone because it is very small, but addicting

Gameplay: 8
Size: 8
Originality: 8
Speed: 7
