How to play

Bat and ball is inspired by the classic video game Pong. The aim is to hit your ball back and forth using the paddles that can be moved left and right across the game screen. If you miss the ball, your opponent scores a point.

It can be played as single player, with player one using the dial and the computer as player two, or two player with one player using dial and the other using slider, or with two dials or two sliders.

If you move the paddle left or right you can put spin on the ball as it leaves your paddle but be careful not to use too much or the ball will spin back towards you!

The first player to reach 10 is the winner.
