netPong

Play Pong by tilting your computer! Play alone or with a friend over a local network.

To play alone, just launch it. Tilt your computer to control the paddle. To play with a friend, make sure both of you are in the same local network. One of you has to start his copy of Pong, and the other should start his after 5-10 seconds... No other setup needs to be done!
netPong looks for an opponent the first time it's launched.... If none is available, it creates a server. The next netPong application that is launched will connect to it, creating a two player game. That gives the system opponent randomness, so every time you launch it, you might get a random opponent.

The only thing that could make this better would be if it had scores. It might in multiplayer, but in single it doesn't. :(

Oh, and possibly a wider playing area.

Cool idea and works well. However, it must be noted that you need a recent notebook computer to use this (MacBook, MacBook Pro etc.) - doesn't mention that anywhere on the description or site. So don't go tilting your Mac Pro, okay? :)
