By: Mike Young - Pong on roids (besides the fragrent use of parenthesis, that is my goal). Super Ping is an remake of my pong game. This remake boasts much beter game physics due to trigonmetric function usage. My old pong's eight directions of movement just didn't cut it. Super Ping has many features such as items like speed bursts, shrooms (like in Rise of the Triad), and bonus points. I hope to add more items in the future. Also, you can toggle through midi music files by pressing "M". The graphics are also improved over Pong's VGA 320x200x8. Super Ping is 640x400x8 and utilizes VESA SVGA modes thanks to Allegro. You can play against another person or against a few different simple artifical intellegences. The speed of the game is still dependent on the your CPU speed and your video card's 2D VESA SVGA capability. If VESA 1.0 is too slow (it usually is in this game) then see if VESA 2.x or VESA 3.0 will work on your card by switching modes in Super Ping's options menu. In future versions I hope to make it more CPU and video card independent through better use of my user interrupt game loop counter. I also hope to add a high score-keeping feature and maybe a tournament edition.
