Use the Spacebar or the Enter key. Pinball games usually use
one of those, or maybe the cursor down control to simulate pulling back
a spring-loaded plunger. The longer you hold the plunger back, the
harder it strikes the ball when you release it, sending it to the top of
the machine, where it will then fall down again towards you.. You then
use paddles to bat it back to the top again, or at specific targets.
These paddles are generally simulated with the left and right shift or
control keys, as the Alt key is reserved for opening menus in Windows.
Imagine your tiny self at the bottom of an inverted milk jug
with a baseball bat in each hand, trying to keep the milk from spilling
out, and you get the picture.
The only problem is that on either side of the jug are channels
the milk can slip through, around your paddles. The paddles are also
about a ball's width apart, and the milk can slip past you, between the
The tricky part is trying to hit targets on the left side of the
jug with the right paddle, and targets on the right side of the jug with
the left paddle. Skilled players can flip the milk from one paddle to
another to perform this, but keeping the milk in the bottle for as long
as possible is the general goal. Eventually the ball will hit something
really point-worthy. HTH,
