Pong

You will create an app that will let you play pong. Pong has a ball that you can hit with a paddle. Each time you hit the ball with the paddle you will increase the score. The ball bounces off of the paddle and the left wall, top wall, and right wall. If the ball makes it past the paddle to the bottom wall you lose.
