  Description     : massively multiplayer pong game

mmpong is an ATARI-pong-like multiplayer game, where a moving ball
reflects on impact from paddles on the left and right sides of the

A special feature of this variant is the ability to play the game
with far more than two players. Players are split into two teams, and
the position of each team's paddle is determined by the mean value of
the positions of all the players' paddles on the team. mmpong supports
a number of different paddle profiles (like flat or round).

The mmpongd server is capable of serving hundreds of clients 
simultaneously and scales sufficiently well on SMP machines 

Currently, there are two clients at your disposal:
* mmpong-caca:
  basic console-style client based on libcaca
* mmpong-gl:
  graphically advanced OpenGL client available for Linux, Mac OS X
  and Windows
