Pong Mobile!!!

Kinda Pong
run the sketch—view the code

How do you use it?
The LEFT and RIGHT direction keys move the paddle. 1, 2 and 3 on the keypad adjust the speed, and the “Sound” soft key toggles the sound and vibration feedback.

You can play with it in the emulator, download the .jar file and bluetooth it to your phone, or visit http://p365.armatodesign.com/mobile/ with your phone’s browser and download it directly to your phone.

What is it?
Just a little game for your phone. It’s a little buggy, but it works. And, it runs on my phone! If you turn on the sound it uses Mobile Processing’s Sound and Phone libraries to generate tones and activate the phone’s vibrate motor. (I’ve noticed on my phone that it will crash if I turn on the sound when the phone is set to a mode that has application sounds and/or vibration turned off.)

Why is it cool?
I tried to program something like this in Basic on an Apple ][ in 8th grade. I couldn’t get it to work back then. Now I not only have it working, but it runs on my phone!
