Tennis anyone? Play a match against the computer! Move your paddle up and down, to find the best angle to hit the ball where you want to. For extra power, "spring" your raquet by pressing space just before the ball hits it. Two sets wins!
NOTE: To play the game, you must keep the applet area "active" on your terminal. This may involve leaving the mouse pointed at the purple or white area, or even "clicking" on this area before you begin. To adjust the size of the applet, try the larger or smaller version. Press 'R' to restart the game or 'p' to pause/unpause, and use '+' and '-' to adjust the computer playing level.
Commands: . . . . . . . k = move up . . . . . . . j = move down . . . . . . . [space] = spring!

In addition, space-adventure enthusiasts might enjoy my spacetag game, and perhaps also my manymoons simulation.
