Question: The purpose of this week's programming assignment is to learn how to deal with events from multiple sources. In addition, we will learn how to use some of Java's graphics capabilities for drawing shapes in a display area.
The programming assignment for this week is to implement a simple paddle ball game. Paddle Ball Game Overview The paddle ball game is a simplification of the Pong game. In the Pong game, a ball is moving around the display, bouncing off walls.
The player moves a paddle in one dimension, trying to hit the ball whenever possible. If the ball hits the paddle, it bounces off and continues on its way. If the paddle misses the ball, the ball goes off the end of the display area and the player loses a point. In our paddle ball game, the ball moves around the display, bouncing off walls just as in the Pong game.
The player controls a paddle trying to hit the ball just like in the Pong game. If the ball hits the paddle, it bounces off and continues on its way. The main difference in our game is that if the player misses the ball, the ball simply bounces off the wall behind the paddle and continues to travel. There is no scoring in this game
