Gravity Golf

Many moons ago, in 2009, I was on holiday with the family in New Zealand. I made a little planet gravity game thing in Processing. The game is called Gravity Golf.

Recent advances in Processing means that I can publish it on the web. The aim is to find a really cool path of a particle around whatever planets there are to the pink target. The longest duration path is the one that is rendered.


The controls are:

  • Left Click – Launch Single Projectile
  • Right Click – add/remove planet
  • Space – Move Arrow
  • T – Move Target
  • R – Launch Randomly
  • M – Rapid (Machine Gun) Launch
  • Z – Reset to a random configuration
  • H – Display this help
