I’ve just finished writing a first version of a JavaFX web game called Orbitals.
To play, click, drag, and release the small spaceship to launch. Use the gravity of the planets to attempt to reach the spinning starbase.
Lost your ship? Unlikely to get home? Press the RESTART button and start the level again.
Can’t solve the level? Press AUTOSOLVE and the computer will show you how it’s done!
Want to try a new configuration of planets? Hit the GENERATE button and try a new challenge.
Try to beat the par time. Sometimes it’s easy, other times it’s hard. Really hard.
Bugs? Recommendations? Comments? Post below and I’ll consider them for the next version.
04/09/09: I just noticed a bug that stops the game working properly in some browsers. Should be fixed now.
04/09/09: I’ve also taken out the signing – the program’s not accessing the local computer or any other site, so it wasn’t needed
