Nice... However I've a feature to suggest to simulate the dual-touch
(and so to use both the right and the left flippers together):

Simply, while playing, move away the "play" option and then place
between the "left flipper" and the "right flipper" buttons a listener
for the mouse pointer (something like an event box).
So, if the pointer is between the right and the left flipper (i.e. if
the user is pressing on both the flippers), you sould make both the
flippers move. Maybe you could also decide which one should move before
than the other looking where the mouse is (if it is more on the right or
on the left).

Nice work, btw!

PS: what about a little bigger screen too? :)
