Instructor: Rebecca | Difficulty: Intermediate | Series: Turtle Pong

Turtles play pong too! This series takes you step-by-step through the process of creating a pong-style game using - oh yes - Python turtles. Your finished project will allow you to play against yourself or with a friend, using movable paddles and a bouncing ball to earn points and win the game!

In this episode, our pong paddles take shape and get into motion. We’ll create a pong paddle each for Player 1 and Player 2, and code these new objects to move up and down their respective sides of the screen.
