A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

This project is on hold, but there's still a lot to do! If you want to take over this project, send me a little mail.

Impetus Spheroid is a dynamic arcade game where you must touch a lively target with your sphere with high momentum. Gravity, time and obstacles will try to stop you, but you can rely on your bonus to overcome them. Try to blow up your score !


Okay, it's just a ball-shooting game, but, to tell you everything, it's just a mini-game to train myself toward more important projects. However, I'll try to start with panache !

And there I need your help: it would be awesome if I could have some feedback about this game, about its gameplay, graphics, bugs (even if I dare you to find one that I don't know!), etc...

And, if you want to be scared or just to laugh a little, the code is available here : http://github.com/Epholys/Impetus-Spheroid

If you want to read some (french) articles about its creation with some details about its conception and programming, or just about video game in general : http://epholys.wordpress.com/

To chat a little, you can send a mail to epholys [at] gmail [dot] com.
