Introduce Ghost that can be eaten for additional points. Just make sure you know which side hit the ball last as to whom gets the points.

Allow power ups that alter the game such as modifying the gravity/speed of the ball/paddles.
Change direction of paddles up is down and down is up.
Make paddles rotate, shorten, lengthen, put a gap in the middle.

Modify the color of pacman/paddles. Maybe put in a strobe mode where everything goes crazy, background, ball, paddles.

Add a multiplayer element (if not already there).
High Score Feature



In fact heck I may just make this for android ...could be a fun little game to play!
