gball: The Console Ball and Racket Game
NAMEGBall - The Console Ball and Racket Game
DESCRIPTIONGBall is a simple yet nice implementation of the well known ball and racket game. It is designed to run under the GNU/Linux console (including terminal emulators). The aim of the game is simple: control your racket and move it around to bounce the ball and hit all the bricks. If the ball hits a wall, it will bounce. If it fell down the screen without bouncing on the racket, you lose. The game includes 10 levels with an option to play levels randomly, and a high score board.
The racket is controlled by using the arrows keys, or the "a" and "d" keys as shown below.
