Title Hung Pong
Description Not surprisingly, this is a Pong clone, but wait! It has some credibility! It was my entry for the Pong clone programming contest on GreenFire (a TI programming site) in 2004, and it was voted first place for BASIC graphics! Around that time, some of us were still laughing about William Hung, the American Idol contestant who sang "She Bangs" by Ricky Martin in a unique fashion. This Pong clone is based on William Hung's memorable performance. The title screen is actually a photograph of his face, which I converted into BASIC code, in what is referred to by one of the voters on GreenFire as "the face effect." When the ball makes contact with paddle, messages flash on the screen saying things like "She bangs!" and "She moves!" It's winnable and has an ending, as well. I'm completely aware that the collision detection is a bit odd. It actually works as planned (it's not a bug in my opinion) but it may take some getting used to. Anyways, I hope you enjoy the game, and here are the instructions: download Hung_Pong.zip, unzip it, and send HUNGPONG.83P to your calculator. Then run prgmHUNGPONG.
