I've been going through major hell trying to get just one. damn. simple. little. game. working. I can't even complete ping pong! There's almost no game easier than ping pong, and I can't even do it after so much stress trying, and I'm becoming so frustrated over this that I want to kill everyone.

I don't have any clue on how to post code tags here.

This is my best code so far, and not enough enough to do anything decent, and I'm dead tired after spending hours writing this:

Of course you will have to come up with your own pictures and background picture to make the previous code work but it does run

A pong game requires (like any other game) planning. Even though it is the simplest game to write, it can be frustrating if you don't aquire knowledge on how the game works. I know, I know, you're thinking what more can be to it than just the ball moving around, and two paddles hitting it back and forth? Well there are a lot of dynamics in the game that simple developers would realize, and sometimes even advanced developers look over it.

Basically there a few things you will need for each object in the game:
Player: Location, Sprite, MoveSpeed, Score
Computer: Location, Sprite, MoveSpeed, Score, BallLocation, DistanceDetection (usually a float value for pixels)
Ball: Location, Sprite, MoveSpeed, Velocity

General: Screen Width, Screen Height, Player/Computer Sprite Widths

The workings of the player is very simple. If the player inputs the button or key (or other action) to move up or down, we simulate the paddle doing so. So for example in pseudocode:

// Psuedocode (C++ Syntax):
const int MoveSpeed = 5;
VectorVariableType Location;

const int ScreenWidth = 0;
const int ScreenHeight = 0;

// Update player movement:
Location.Y += MoveUpCondition ? -5 : 5;

With the computer we would just detect how far away the ball is to see if we should move the paddle to try and hit it. So in pseudocode:

// Pseudocode (C++ Syntax):
VectorVariableType Location;

BallVariable Ball;

const int ScreenWidth = 0;
const int ScreenHeight = 0;

const float DetectionDistance = 100f;

// Check distance:
Location.Y = Ball.Location.X >= ScreenWidth - DetectionDistance ? Ball.Location.Y : Location.Y;

You can also make it move at a specific rate, but I just make it follow the ball after it gets so close.

With the ball it gets a little more complex. We need a function to spawn the ball after it goes off the screen, as well as to randomize the direction in which it travels. Pseudocode example:

Psuedocode (C++ Syntax):
const int MoveSpeed = 5;
VectorVariableType Location;
VectorVariableType Velocity;

PlayerVariable Player;
ComputerVariable Computer;

const int ScreenWidth = 0;
const int ScreenHeight = 0;

const int BallWidth = 20;
const int BallHeight = 20;

void Spawn() {
    int Random = // generate random number between 1 and 4.

    // Handle each outcome for direction:
    switch (Random) {
        case 1: Velocity = new VectorVariableType(MoveSpeed, MoveSpeed); break;
        case 2: Velocity = new VectorVariableType(-MoveSpeed, -MoveSpeed); break;
        case 3: Velocity = new VectorVariableType(-MoveSpeed, MoveSpeed); break;
        case 4: Velocity = new VectorVariableType(MoveSpeed, -MoveSpeed); break;
    }

    // Reset location to center of the screen.
    Location = new VectorVariableType(ScreenWidth / 2, ScreenHeight / 2);
}


// Update the ball:
Location += Velocity;

// Check left wall for scoring
if (Location.X < 0)
    Computer.Score++;

// Check right wall for scoring
if (Location.X > ScreenWidth)
    Player.Score++;

// Check top and bottom for inverting Y.
Velocity.Y = Location.Y <= 0 || Location.Y + BallHeight >= ScreenHeight ? -Velocity.Y : Velocity.Y;

That's your basic inner workings of a simple pong game. It takes a little longer than we all think to write it, but no where near as long as some of the more complex games like Pacman, Tetris, Space Invaders, etc.

Hope it helps,
