What the heck is this?

PlasmaPong is a game that is, most concisely, a psychedelic pong-like game. It is sort of a cross between an MP3 player visualization and my own variation of a paddle and ball game. Here's how it works:

You use the mouse to control four paddles, one on each side of the screen. The top and bottom paddles respond to left-right movements of the mouse, and the left and right paddles to the up-down movements of the mouse. This is where it starts to get tricky... The pairs of paddles move opposite each other, so up moves the left one up but moves the right one down. A left movement moves the bottom paddle left, and the top one right.

Of course, that's not the end of the brain twisting. The "ball" is more like an atom with a spinning cloud of dots around it, and all the while, there are trippy special effects going on in the background (I'd give you a screenshot, but the current working version doesn't seem to want to give me one).
