Atomic explosions causing evolutionary changes? I'm in.

Can't wait till Friday Flash Fun: Atomic Kaos 2 Orbits is a puzzle-ish game where you are trying to remove all the atoms from the playing field through a chain of explosions.

Am I nerd for liking the math aspect (having to calculate the angles to make everything line up) more than the game aspect (having to move the mouse to time the movements)?

<spoiler>YES</spoiler>

I was playing through this yesterday and it got the point where I just got frustrated with moving my mouse around to get things to line up, and I just gave up. I might try again now though.

Great, simple idea. Poor execution. I agree with DU.

I didn't find the mouse control issue much of a problem: it actually works a bit intuitively to move in on the subject of the click and have it slow down so you can click on it. I was more for completion than speed, though, so didn't mind about letting things crawl through. Arguably some of the levels are out of alignment in terms of difficulty.

I like the control. I am looking at the orbits anyway, I just place the mouse infront of the one I want to click. Works great.

I have changed my mind. I went back to reading thru links and find I am very reluctant to move my mouse. I creep it across the screen, perhaps afraid that if I move it quickly things will start flying around.
