Arkanoid 2.7 with Pygame – Mouse control

To avoid losing the control over the mouse when you go out of the screen, you can use this:

You will have to use the escape (pygame.K_ESCAPE) button to exit, because you cannot use the mouse to close the window.

A solution to this could be the add of pygame.event.set_grab(False) when you press, for example K_SPACE, when you pause the game, so that you are able to close it then with the mouse. You will have to redo pygame.event.set_grab(True) when you unpause the game.
