A downloadable game for Windows

DESCRIPTION

Sling your away around planets and smash into asteroids!

Click and hold on planets to pull yourself towards them. Release and hit asteroids. As you glide through space, your momentum will increase! The larger the asteroids are, the greater momentum you'll need to hit them.

Holding space will allow you to move if you don't have any planets to grapple onto, however it won't increase your momentum.

I think it would be really fun, as a cool next version feature of your game, to allow player's slingshot projectiles to bend to the asteroids' gravity wells, thus enabling the player to use one smaller asteroid as a ricocheting unit to hit a larger unit that's obscured by several other units, say, and in doing so, smash a whole bunch of smaller stellar rocks  (maybe including the one you ricocheted around) in one fell swoop. That would be really cool. Please consider adding this feature, if it isn't already in there. (I couldn't tell if it was, based on your blurb above.)

That's an excellent idea! Good thinking.
