Over on the QJ forums, Hardrive has released his own version of Pong, which now allows for both vertical and horizontal movement. Besides the game, however, he's also releasing the source for his creation so that it can help people who are learning how to code SDL.
Here is Hardrive's announcement from the forums:
This game started as a mini project that I worked on to teach myself the ropes on programming for the PSP as well as programming games using SDL. As a side effect of using SDL, this game also runs on Linux, Windows, or any other platform that is capable or running SDL.... The main reason I am releasing this is the source.... If this code can help even one person out there use SDL, then I'm happy. However, that said, I'm not saying I'm using SDL correctly or in the most clever and efficient way possible.
The addition of horizontal movement happens to bring some added tension to the game. That being said, we're also happy that the release comes with the code, since that may be of use to some of the SDL coders out in QJ land. Enjoy the app and the source code, and make sure you check the readme for clarifications.
