Made in about two days, this is my entry to the informal TIGSource Love Letter Competition. It is a game about a little lovesick positive electrical charge, who wishes to meet with the object of his affections: a negative electrical charge. The game has a lot of meaning, both with respect to the competition theme and with respect to certain physics concepts.
Place positive charges with the mouse; these positive charges will repel the main character, hopefully guiding him through the level in order to reach the negative charge.
Magnetic fields will also adjust your trajectory.
<R> or <SPACE> restarts a level.
The game features a custom-built physics engine (for the repelling charges, as well as the magnetic fields and gravity), which I am quite proud of considering it was made with GM4.3. I made it on Vista, so it should work on Vista. There are a few minor glitches, but nothing is detrimental to the gameplay.
As far as background information about the title, "Coulomb's Law" describes forces which act on charges from other charges, "Biot-Savart's Law" describes forces which act on moving charges from a magnetic field.
