An Uber-engineered PONG clone

Project description

Uber Pong!

An *Uber-engineered* and somewhat overthought multiplayer implementation of a classic game.

![]( ![](

**NOTE: Uber Pong! is currently on its first alpha state, meaning that everything
is subject to change!**

* [python]( >= 3.3
* [pyglet](
* [pymunk](
* [docopt](
* [lz4](
* [simpleubjson](
* [bson](

## Features
* Painless installation
* Client-server paradigm, meaning it comes with multiplayer support out of the box
* Powered by **pymunk** physics
* Powered by **pyglet** for almost everything else
* Fun and simple


There are a bunch of ways you can install **uberpong**:

### The *pip* way
pip3 install uberpong
uberpong # Create a session
uberpong -H # Connect to someone else's session

###The *git* way
First of all, you must clone the repo ...
git clone
cd uberpong

From this point you can run it standalone ...
pip3 install -r requirements.txt
./ # Create a session
./ -H # Connect to someone else's session

###BTW: you need an opponent to play
By default, *uberpong* runs in server mode, if your opponent wishes
to join an existing *uberpong* session, he/she must do in client mode, like so:

uberpong -H <server ip address>

uberpong [-H <ip_address> | --host <ip_address>] [--port <port> | -p <port>] [--lz4 | -z]
uberpong -h | --help
uberpong --version

-z --lz4 Use LZ4 compression algorithm
-H --host <ip_address> Server to connect to
-p --port <port> Port to connect to [default: 54212]
-h --help Show this screen.
--version Show version.

* Dead-simple execution of the game

* Connect to an existing session
uberpong -H <host ip address>

* Create a session using a different port number for listening
uberpong -p 54201

* Connect to a session listening on an arbitrary port number
uberpong -H <host ip address> -p 54201

* Activate lz4 compression for network traffic on you *uberpong* session
uberpong --lz4

* Connect to a session using lz4 network traffic compression
uberpong -H <host ip address> --lz4

##How to play
* Press `F12` to exit the game at any point
* In-Game: Press `W` to move your paddle up
* In-Game: Press `S` to move your paddle down

There are many ways in which you can contribute to *uberpong*.
Code patches are just one thing amongst others that you can submit to help the project.
