Flashy Orbit

Thursday, November 09, 2006 | 12:39 pm

Continuing my one-post tradition of bringing you probably not-new yet remarkably fun Flash games, I present for your consideration ORBIT. It's a very simple exercise in the attractive laws of planetary bodies, and suits my definition of great Flash games– quick to learn, fast to play, and very 'control' un-intensive (i.e. not lots of key mashing etc).

I leave a window open in the background, and when I need a 1-minute break, I try to beat it. Currently am at level 10, but having no joy whatsoever beating that constellation.

If they could improve anything, I think they need a little marker showing where you have started already. If you send your asteroid off with a little momentum, it moves your mouse away from the starting point, and you can't find it precisely again to fine tune. And this game is all about choosing your starting point.
