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
