More information:
DX pong is a neat pong game that uses DirectX 7. I wrote it in just one day and the graphics are smooth - over 50 fps! There are sound FX too, but the best thing about the game is the computer AI. It doesn't simply chase the ball, it predicts the balls path even if it is going to bounce of several walls and moves accordingly. Clever AI doesn't mean it is impossible to beat - it means it acts like a human player making the game more fun. So - have fun!
