Hi.
Actually its not that simple.
I started my first project with a pong game and hit a lot of walls for the ball mechanic.

for movement how do you want it to move? (mouse/touch/controller)

Also for the ball mechanics can be different depending on what you want.

For example the angle can change depending on where the ball hits on the paddle.
you can also change angle by the paddle movement.
