Slingshot

Slingshot is a gravity based physics game, where you control a small spaceship.
You get points for being close to planets, but once you run out of fuel you lose.
The Sun allows you to refuel – risking a slingshot maneuver that will throw you out of the solarsystem.
The original idea was related to the theme in a manner that we wanted to allow the player ot enter his own weight and size, and use those values for the spaceship – however, that turned out to be impossible to balance within the limited timeframe.
The game may be played with an XBox 360 Controller.
