Voicepong is inspired by traditional pong which is one of the earliest arcade video game. The aim is to win the simulated table-tennis game by making a sound to control the paddle's movement and being the first player to earn 5 points. Players can move their paddles based on how loud they talk or yell. The more they make sounds, the paddle moves upward, and vice versa.
To start this game, players will access to certain IP address and be assigned with an unique peer ID. Once each player enters the opponent’s ID, the game will begin. For the audio input device, a microphone will be connected to the computer.
This game can be played by more than two players as long as the number of players on each side is identical. This multiplayer game will provide interactive and collaborative experience.
