This is a project to build a general ball and paddle game similar to classic games with the same premise. The field starts with walls on the top, left, and right, but an open floor, and a paddle at the bottom, which the player scrolls left and right. There is a set of blocks that just be destroyed and a ball bounces around, damaging whatever it touches, except for the walls, the paddle, and other invincible things. Various small powerups fall from the blocks randomly doing things like stretch the paddle, make the ball stronger, or speed things up. This continues until all blocks are gone, and then the next level is loaded. This continues until the end of a level set and if you beat the top 5 players of that level set, you kick out a member of the previous top 5 and submit your name.

It is written in C++ and will be designed to be extensible. The idea is that you could emulate other games of the type and create all sorts of graphical styles.
