That is far more entertaining than I'd expected.

Usually I’m not a fan of gravity or golf, but put them together and they’re pretty fun.

I liked Weak Nuclear Force Curling better.

Your search - "Weak Nuclear Force Curling" - did not match any documents.

Kinda disappointed about that. Cortex, code it up.

Yeah, Gravity Golf is fun.

...

If you haven't tried electromagnetic Bocce or x-ray dodgeball.

(seriously, this was good and fun and well and I'm really not too good at it)

That was way more fun than I expected.

20M for me, hooray! I must admit, I do like a game where you don't die and start again from the beginning... more sandboxy this way.

fun!

I liked that too, Squid Voltaire. After a couple of holes where I had to shoot 21 times, I was grateful.

I'm reminded of the bit in Red Dwarf where Lister is playing billiards with planets.

And I got a hole in one; because I am a master of both heavenly bodies and gravitational forces.

Bow before me and my ability to move a little pointer thingy and press a button.

Bow, damn it!

Better than the similar flash games I've played. I'm pretty sure the similar game is linked on the blue somewhere, but I can't be bothered to find it. No extra link points for me.

Our second friday flash fun post of the day! Here I thought everyone had forgotten about it.

Also, the game looks cool but, as always, I am total crap at it. Won't stop me from continuing to try!

I didn't come close to 455sm's 60m, but I did get a bunch of blackhole in ones, including the last level.

Which actually kinda sucks, because the longer you spend floating around, the more points you get.

Still, quite a lot of fun.

Sort of reminds me of Gorilla.bas. But waaaayyyyy harder.

Now get off my lawn.

Have a look at this beautiful motherfucking cat.

This is just like Spaced Penguin (previously).

42,972,131 for all 36 rounds. Fun.

Good game. It reminds me, just a little, of Orbital, from Nintendo's Bit Generations series of arty Gameboy Advance games.

This is AWESOME!!

Also, More levels.

I gave up after I hit the seemingly impossible z-shaped pinball bouncy level. Every goddamn time I bounced the thing out of the starting area, it ended up missing the hole and ending up in a planet. Maybe I should have used fuel, sure, but there really ought to be at least one angle that actually makes it go in the hole without hitting tilt...
