I have a slow machine, I got 21 first time.. :)
I actually got more than 50. After 25-30 the cpu player didn't play well at all. Maybe it got to chaotic, or the cpu was too busy with the dynamics. I'll have to try a faster machine tomorrow.. :D

Nice find, I like it!

14,20 then after maybe 10 more games experimenting with techniques 26.

The frame rate caps at 60, (displays 59). I cant even imaging how you could get a score of 50. Unless the game just displays very slow on a slower machine.

I made 21 and then 27 on a faster machine. Framerate about 58 I believe.
One the slow machine the framerate was only 12-13, but game didn't move that much more slowly, just more choppy..
The score of 54 seems to be more or less a bug, since the cpu starts playing really bad, sometimes not even showing it's paddle to block the ball, after about round 30. This is on the slow machine, I don't know if it happens on the faster machine too, since I only got to 27 on it...

Interesting that a slow machine would effect the AI more.
