Solo Defense is the first game that I released for Android. Before I get too far into an explanation, you can click this link: Solo Defense on Google Play to download the game.
The premise of the game is simple, you just keep the ball within the page, check out the video below if you are interested.
Anyway, as I was saying. You just keep the ball on the screen. The user starts with only one controllable paddle. As the game goes on another paddle becomes available, and then the final two start working. It behaves similar to Atari’s pong, except for the fact that there are four paddles and you control all of them. I actually released this game under the name Solo Pong. It stayed on the market for a little over a week before I got a nice letter from Atari asking me to take it down. It turns out using the name Pong counts as copyright infringement, hence the renaming of the game. Unfortunately the business with Atari is the most interesting part of this project. I’ve written this game concept in nearly every language I know. Instead of the basic “Hello World” app I normally right solo pong. It forces me to get a grasp with graphics, input, and a bit of memory management, but I doubt you care about that.
