Intergalactic Curling Leagueby stevecochrane - 48 Hour Compo Entry
My first Ludum Dare entry. It's for two players and it's like curling with a dash of Marble Madness. In space!
When it's your turn you can press left or right to line up your shot and hold space bar to begin your throw. The sooner you let go of the space bar, the faster you'll throw it. So if you want to knock someone out of position, let go immediately. If you want a short-range throw for a defensive position, hold on for a second or two.
Once the brooms come out you can mash the space bar to reduce friction and keep the rock rolling. In short, sweep if you want to go faster. At any point after you've thrown you can hit the left or right arrow keys to steer in that direction.
The player with the rock closest to the middle of the house (the target at the end) wins! Good curling, and thanks for playing!
