How to make a game like circle pong?

Hi, I want to make a game like circle pong. So when my ball collides with my Stick I want it to be like this http://prntscr.com/5rofn7
So when my ball collides with something it should bounce away from that object in a random position. And how do I make it start in a direction to the E.G Wall?

    I've attached a file with a lil project I made testing this out. Might not be the most conventional method, and I didn't feel like figuring out the circular paddle movement (so it just follows the mouse), but it seems to work pretty well.

    I attached a zippy export-to-mac file, so you'll have to unzip it, and if you happen to have PC, then I think just copypaste another .gameproj 'file' into the folder and hopefully that'll work... :p

    Good luck!

    GS-helper already has his tutorials for making an actor moving in circles and making the rotation follow. Just do: When mouse key is down, rotate in opposite direction (I think just a minus in front of it). Collide, move ball and done!!

    I tried it myself.... and I failed hard.....
    Good luck!!

    @nickname5862 You will need to upload the file to a file-sharing service and then post the download link here.

    @tatiang's suggestion was that you upload your file to a file-sharing service and then post the download link here, you don't need a Pro account to do that.

    Try something like Mediafire or WeTransfer or Dropbox . . .

    Aha, I get it. I will try. And EmrikAhl, my file is just a shortcut, but not the whole thing. The only thing I have in that file is a way to let the actor circle around a point and let it change direction when touched spacebar.

    I think this will do...
