When you play a game against the CPU you control the Ball speed and the CPU speed, as it is displayed in the next screenshot.
The Ball speed controls how fast the ball is in the field, and the CPU speed controls how often the CPU will make a move.
Even though when you change the CPU speed you do not make the CPU “smarter”, you do increase the level of difficulty, because you need to act faster (or slower).
The default CPU speed is at the normal level. But, there are 4 more levels to select from:
- Very slow, about 20% slower than the default speed
- Slow, about 10% slower than the default speed
- Fast, about 10% faster than the default speed
- Very fast, about 20% faster than the default speed
In addition to the above changes in the CPU speed, in the versions 1.2 (Android), and 1.4 (iOS) we added the dynamic CPU speed. This means that if you play at one level (i.e., Very slow), and you are getting really good at it, the CPU speed may be higher than the Slow or even the Fast level.
