What is it?Play Pong by tilting your computer! Play alone or with a friend over a local network.
How to use it?To play alone, just launch it. Tilt your computer to control the paddle. To play with a friend, make sure both of you are in the same local network. One of you has to start his copy of Pong, and the other should start his after 5-10 seconds... No other setup needs to be done!
netPong looks for an opponent the first time it's launched.... If none is available, it creates a server. The next netPong application that is launched will connect to it, creating a two player game. That gives the system opponent randomness, so every time you launch it, you might get a random opponent.
Is it free?Yes! If you really want to, you can always contribute to my Pay-Pal account. If you want to include it into any CD-ROM or other media to mass-distribute it, please email-me!
Known IssuesNot tested on all machines. The Paddle could move too slow/fast or not move at all. Requires both computers to have a dynamic IP address for a two player game.
Special ThanksNetPong uses the UniMotion library to retrieve the current orientation of the computer. Daniel Hirschman for his original idea! Fabrica.
