Slingshot is a free and open source two-dimensional, turn-based simulation-strategy game for Linux. It is gravity based space shooting game. This highly addictive gaming experience offers a dynamic challenge, ensuring that no two rounds are alike, courtesy of its ingeniously crafted randomly generated playing fields.
You need to propel your spacecraft through the planetary field to hit your opponent. Yet, the gravitational forces exerted by these celestial bodies add a layer of complexity, turning every move into a carefully calculated maneuver. To outsmart your opponent, you wield control over your spacecraft’s orientation, allowing you to rotate it in any direction. Additionally, you can adjust the launch power of your projectile, determining its initial speed as it hurtles through space.
