Thanks for posting the video.  That looks really close to what I grew up with.  :)

Another mode: Brick Pong
Break through opponents wall to score. Defend your wall.
Colors are customizable in every mode.

This is something I'd be very interested in and seems like it would be a lot if fun. :)

We both use the same tv, a sears video arcade and a modded flashback. I guess great minds think alike. :)

When I first saw this, i thought it was an April Fool's Day joke.

But it looks like it is something real.  Good.

Am I missing something or is the Jai Alai mode what others called Handball?

Or squash as someone previously mentioned.

 

On some pong systems the soccer variation in that video was called hockey (Radio Shack Color TV Scoreboard).

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.

On a somewhat related note, Rev and I will be wearing matching green circa 1970's size small squash shorts to PRGE. Just sayin.
