BBC micro:bit pong game

Overview

Play pong over as single player or Bluetooth between two micro:bit devices.

The game works by controlling a paddle with the two buttons of the micro:bit (labeled A and B). Initially the playing mode is selected: use button A to toggle between single- and multi-player, and press button B to select the current choice. To start the game, the player with the ball launches the ball by pressing both buttons.

When multi-player mode has been selected the game will try to look for and connect to a second micro:bit which has also been set into multi- player mode.

If the board has a piezo buzzer connected to pin 0, this will be used to generate beeps whenever the ball hits a wall or the paddle.
