You'll find that this game is quite a brainteaser. Strategically placing your Deflector and predicting a bouncing ball's trajectory is no easy task.
This is an adaptation for the 5K or 8K VIC of Fred Dunlap's Deflection program (from Vol. I, Number 3, PET User Notes).
Deflector was written by Frank J. Tyniw and published as type-in source code in Compute! Issue 36, May 1983. Versions were provided for the VIC, Atari 8-bit, and Apple II systems.
