ArkaPyGame 1.3 – Adding a background

Now we added a background to the game

I made it 500×500 and saved it into a folder called img.

I loaded with this function that makes it a surface

And I blitted it in the while loop at the start replacing screen.fill, because now this one deletes the previous blits on the screen so that it is all nice and clean.

I also used another way to draw the ball

I imported this

And substituted the ellipse, in the move_ball() function with this

The whole code

Now it looks a lot more the original
