Made a little puzzle game based on a HP48 / TI calculator game. Although I never played the originals, I played a version on the Jupiter Ace and wanted to make a version for Arduboy with some extras to make it more fun to play.

Move the ball with the directional buttons and collect all bubbles.
The ball will continue moving into the same direction until it hits
a wall or the blocker.
The blocker can be moved in same way as the ball except it also stops
when it hits the ball or a bubble.
Press the B-button to switch control between the ball and the blocker.
A joystick will wiggle its way from the ball to the blocker or vice
versa when changing control.
Moving the ball or blocker into a new direction will count as a move. You have
1024 moves to complete all 25 levels.
As an aid you get 5 special balls. A special ball can be used to either
retry or skip a level. Skipping a level will also cost a 100 move penalty.
