    Finally broke 2000: 2378 Something I hadn't noticed before before is how the change in direction of the ball works. I had always assumed when the ball moved faster horizontally, it was because I had hit it on the very edge of the paddle. Instead, it happens automatically after you hit the ball the first 8 times with a new paddle, and resumes normal movement after another 8 hits. The arcade game seems to work the same way. Kind of disappointing, honestly. The player really doesn't have that much control over the ball. Still, I remember playing a DOS clone of Breakout where you had no control of the ball's direction at all, so it's better than that, at least!

    One thing I found that helps me is to not focus on the bricks, but to watch the bottom half of the screen. 🙂

    Welcome to "The Squad" @Gianna 🙂 I generally hit the launch button right away out of frustration from losing a ball. I did have to leave the game once between balls and the screen went in color-shift mode but hitting the launch button picked the game up from where I left off. It's easy to burn through 5 balls in this game ... even though they are square.

    Keep on trying @Gianna! Practice really helps on this game. When you lose a ball, take a moment to catch your breath. Breath in and out a few times before pushing that button. That's what I do.

    Awesome! Yea, you really have to kind of be in a trance when watching where the ball is going. Thanks for the compliments. This is a fun game.

    Here is my score so far. I played using paddle controllers. It seems like I go a while on the first ball, and then once I lose a ball I go through them really quickly! You guys have really good scores!

    The game does have an inherent issue with that variation. The captive balls are brown and flicker, which allows them to sometimes pass through a brick and even your paddle. Here's 2 videos I just put up. The first shows one of the captive balls going right through a brick multiple times. I was only able to knock it out using the blue ball. The other shows a captive ball going right through the paddle.

    @atarilbc Would you like me to look in my stash for an extra set of paddles this weekend?

    I kept playing last night and all I got for my efforts was a busted paddle set. The brittle plastic gave way on both paddles. 😭😭😭🤷‍♂️
