This is our version of the classic early computer game "Breakout" ( itself a development of the even earlier "Pong" game - we prefer that name ) where a player controls a bar that knocks a ball or puck around the screen.
In our version of Pong/Breakout, there are 3 types of bricks for you to break: green bricks are worth 2 points; yellow bricks are worth 50 points; white bricks which are worth 10 points and result in a German language question for the topic you have chosen.
You start with 5 lives. If the ball goes below the paddle, a life is lost and you lose 200 points.
The game ends if you you answer all 10 questions or lose all your lives.
This version of Pong is a one player game to learn or revise German vocabulary
Our Pong for German is a scoring game - play a few times and set a personal best score!
Addictive! You may end up trying to avoid the white bricks so that you can play for longer...
