Don't expect to jump right in and master every level.
Give yourself plenty of time and don't head right for
the advanced levels of play, even if they are available
Getting power-ups is half the battle. Sometimes it's worth
missing a point to keep the computer from gaining a power-up.
Catching the power-ups that let you "grab" the Pong ball is
a must. Once you've caught one, pressing the Return key just
as the ball hits your paddle lets you aim the ball to your
best advantage. This skill becomes important as you move
through the levels, so perfect it quickly.
