PingPop - An old-style arcade game with elements reminiscent of Breakout
Version: 1.0An old-style arcade game with elements reminiscent of Breakout. And no, we're not claiming it has a shred of educational value (or originality).

Operating System: Mac OS X
Try it and decide if it's worth to play again.
Most of the animation math was handled by ArcadeEngine, a Revolution add-on by Malte Brill. Trigonometry was never our strong point so having a good motion / collision math resource (with a well thought out help section) was essential. Also, Malte supplied several example games with source code - a great learning tool that really helped get PingPop off the ground.
