This is a clone of one of the first video games ever made: Pong.

I implemented three game modes; single-player with three difficulties of AI, two-player local, and two-player networked (multiplayer). The multiplayer is really horribly done and almost too laggy to even be playable, but it does work once you clear a specified port in your router settings. As usual, I wanted steer clear of swing, and therefore created my own button class, with the ability to use either a coloured background, or an image.

This was just a personal project, which I worked on over the span of several months. Overall I’m pleased with the way it turned out, and other than the horrid state the networking is in, I feel this game is finished.
