You can download the source from here though you will need a base64 decoder to extract the images. You should be able to persuade Netscape (or some other browser) to extract these for you, but I'm not about to go to the trouble of maintaining them...
Hot Tips! You can capture the
ball within the bat if you move a corner of the bat towards
the ball at exactly the right moment. Doing this right takes lots of
practice, and usually ends up with the ball hitting the bottom of the
screen. Getting the ball out can be even more interesting.
Watch out for the rubber blocks (they flash, but don't go away when you hit them) and the counter blocks (which need to be hit several times to disappear).
Performance Issues The game runs
not too badly on a SparcStation10 (a little slow, but the SS10 is a
slow machine anway) and it runs better on a Pentium system running
Linux (mostly due to the faster integer handling). If this game works
at all on a Windows system, it is a tribute to the guys at Sun, as it
is not kind to systems at all (especially with respect to
colour management). I considered making the tclet allocate its own
colour map, but this doesn't have much effect (sadly).
