I've just got a very nice, 2600-style, color animation effect on the balls. >As for game control, the only controller that I think could work to get >you to avoid all of the balls is a trackball (in TB mode). Trackball control could be great but would limit the game to a small number of users (and I haven't a 2600 trackball). As I've explained in another message, you must not necessarily avoid all of the balls, just minimize the number of hits.
