If you wanted to avoid using the root mode, you could copy the desktop
file onto ~/.local/share/applications in the home of every user who
wanted to play the game. If the application folder wasn't created in
.local/share, you could made it without root permission too.

Besides, you don't need to write any path for an icon in the desktop
file. A generic icon will be showed if it's blank. And the text in the
exec line can be the command which starts the game from a terminal. It
must be pong2, then exec=pong2 would be enough.

The folder for user's icons is: .local/share/icons. Changing an
ordinary image into a very simple icon doesn't seem very difficult. It
should be a square PNG image and the most common resolution are:
16x16, 32x32, 48x48 and 128x128. You may find those four folders in
.local/share/icons/hicolor.


PS: I don't know that game, but if you run man pong2 or info pong2 in
a terminal you may get some information about the game options.
