good! like it

This is a pretty good little physics game that unfortunately highlights a problem with BASIC... It's incredibly slow! However, if you rack up the speed in your emulator, it plays very nicely indeed!

Developer

Thank you.  Without wanting to blow my own trumpet, I'm really enjoying playing it too.

I've actually been thinking how I might make the game work if I re-made it in assembly.  I *think* I could - my z80 skills are okay (though the maths might prove challenging in such a low level environment).

I love this game!

Really nice game! I included it in my ZX Specturum Basic Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look :)

This is great, some really clever tricks to make it seem more polished than your usual BASIC fare. I'm terrible at it, though! :-D

Wow! A lot of work went into this...looks great and like a Speccy game of old but with mobile-app type game mechanic...really nice work!

Developer

Thanks.  I've actually spend some time on presentation, and the like.  I actually think the game is very hard (hence the not-at-all-hidden cheat mode to start on any level).  The later levels are - in my opinion - the more entertaining ones, the first half a dozen are about teaching concepts, which is a bit of a chore, if starting afresh.

Not bad! I must say it plays much better than last time I tried, and makes more sense as a result. It's not my style at all, but the quality is obvious. Bonus points for the concept, too.
