Title
A greatly underappreciated ball and paddle design, Rebound adds gravity to the Pong formula. Players compete to bounce a ball past their opponent, with the ball bouncing at different trajectories depending on where it hits the paddle.

The game takes a bit of practice to master, since it can be difficult to align the paddle with the ball's curved (and accelerating) trajectory. Still, I had fun building that skill. It also has a naturalistic feel, since the ball moves just as it would bouncing off of a racket; that is, with a uniform acceleration.
