Satellite Launch Prototype


How many satellites can you keep in orbit? Click to place satellites in orbit and set them on paths that won’t collide.

This prototype is a bit of a dead-end; it’s too shallow. I’ve put it up here as a headstone to the last few days of effort trying to turn it into something more. I experimented with flinging the satellites with mouse motion, but it was inferior to what you see here. It made it really hard to set a consistent orbital velocity. I also thought about adding an opposing team of bad satellites, but it’s pretty clear that there would be epic collateral damage every time you try to deorbit one.

Still, the randomised news-flash messages are fun. Get the Windows version here (5 MB).
Play it on the web.

    For what it’s worth, my high score is 18.
