I sketched a list of commands to implement and some ASCII symbols to use. For this project, I decided to use single-character codes instead of strings because they are more straightforward for the controller to recognize. For example, sending the controller "HELP" will move the puck to the "P," but if I send "?" it will respond with helpful instructions.

The acceleration style is the most important to me since I should be adding new types, so they all have a unique symbol. The character corresponds with the number row of a typing keyboard and pressing shift.

While parsing out the styles, I added a medium acceleration profile, which I can delete later if it becomes unimportant. The best-looking technique was to set the speed pseudo-randomly, which looks like a ghost struggling to move the puck. Another big improvement was using the "+" and "-" symbols to increment or decrement the speed limit.
