Description
Twigatelle is a simple game developed in Java inspired by any number of those pachinko-type games where little thingies bounce around hitting other thingies in a slightly hypnotic way. The name is a contraction of "Twiggles" and "bagatelle"

I chose to code up this game since:
(a) I like playing simple pinball-type games

(b) I was interested to see if I could develop a little game in Java that ran at a good framerate on any reasonable PC, Max, *nix box

(c) I wanted to see if I was capable of coding up various maths routines (collision and rebound of odd-shaped objects, procedural textures etc.) from scratch without nicking anyone elses source

and (d) I have not yet grown out of coding for 'fun'

Features: Java 2D game with animation, sound, simple particle system, simple physics effects, simple everything really. What can I say? I'm a simple kind of guy...

Features

* Bouncy balls.
* Things that bouncy balls hit.
Planned Features

* Further items for the bouncy balls to collide with.

Thank you :)

By the way, not saying I didn't nick anyone else's algorithms. Mr Perlin just kicked the back of my chair.

I think they're quite serious though:
in order to make $1million or more from winning the NANY competition.
