Wow, I think this is amazing and deserves to be seen more.

I like your idea on how to get rid of the score in Pong. At first I thought this was just gonna be the same game but without the actual score, but you added a twist that gave the game a different flavor.

Also, the vintage aesthetics of the screen suits the game very well. I like it very much! 

Although it is a very simple game, I think it fits the theme very well and it also well implemented. Amazing job!

P.S. I'd like to invite you to try our game as well! We are in need of more ratings. https://itch.io/jam/gmtk-2018/rate/300343

I like the game its very fun, only the ai is a bit dumb but the game itself is very fun and is a nice concept

I've actually made a similar concept to this in the past and I quite like this take on it. The visuals are simple but done well and I like the 4:3 effect that kicks in partway through. The only minor issue I can immediately spot is that the paddles are a bit jittery when you try to move them into the wall (the CPU is especially guilty of this).

Very nice mashup of two great games. Since you have to dodge but every time a ball hits your paddle, your paddle shrinks, it creates a natural negative feedback loop; which is kind of cool, as you usually artifically create those negative loops.

It gets a bit frustrating when the ball moves on a very narrow vertical angle and you have no way to dodge, but other than that, it's pretty nice.

I really like this idea, it's simple and fits the theme wonderfully

I had a ton of fun playing this. The menu buttons are a bit iffy to click on, but it's great overall!

Thank you! That really made my day, if I have the time I'll see if I can adjust the menu buttons before the deadline. 

EDIT: Menu buttons are fixed now.
