Bat and Ball V0.5

Inspired by the BBC classic game of bat and ball this is enhanced to use a circular bat leading to advanced bouncing technique. The ball accelerates by 2% on each hit and your score goes as the square of the speed of the ball - those extra hits at high speed are worth many points.

For those of you who didn't read the rest of the instructions before pressing S to start the game here are the keys

The mildly insane amongst you may also wish to use the S key to speed up the ball once the game is in progress - the more evil amongst you may work out how to get infeasibly high scores using this method - about ~100 000 per ball is possible if you know how.
