Four-pong (4-pong) is a twist on the original PONG. One player, but you must control four paddles to keep the ball from going off screen. It looks simple, but it's quite challenging!

I made this as a learning exercise -- keep it simple, but make it challenging and fun.

Best wishes and happy playing!

Hi there!

New PICO-8 programmer and relatively new programmer in general.

I'm making a very simple "pong" game just to get the hang of PICO-8 and Lua, but I can't figure out how to start a game paused. I considered setting a variable "paused" and flip it between 0 and 1 using keyboard input (and then running the update functions when paused = 0), but then it would have to be the Z or X key which I might use later on for something else.

How does everyone else handle this? Or can you point me to a web-resource that explains the best way to handle this?

Thanks for putting up with newbie questions!
