The accidental paddle ball...

Here's a development prototype for an arcade game I dreamed up by virture of a programming mistake! What I mean by this is that I was after a certain behavior and in hacking together the main algorithm in assembly language, I stumbled across a totally unexpected emergent behavior that was far cooler than my original intentions.

I put the algorithm in a game framework and it's pretty complete with sounds, and relatively advanced hi-res graphics for the time. It has score keeping, a timer and multiple lives on top of the uncanny paddle ball action. This game prototype utilizes a joystick for control. Watch out for the invisible fly paper on the floor!
