Have you tried out PICO-8 yet? It's pretty cool.

I whacked together this game over a day or two while offline at a cabin near Winter Park.

Figuring out how to make the paddle angle the ball was surprisingly hard.

Fun fact: The entirety of the game's code is contained within the image of the cartridge, so that PICO-8 players can literally send and share cartridges with each other. Algebraic!

Play it here. Enjoy!
