Laser Pong

LaserPong is a simple but surprisingly fun variation on the traditional game Pong, played on one keyboard by two players. Players can fire lasers from the center of their paddles. If a laser contacts an oncoming ball, the ball switches direction. If a laser contacts a player’s paddle, the paddle shrinks! Note, that the score is always displayed in the terminal window throughout the game’s duration.
