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.
