A downloadable game for Windows

An entry to the informal TIGSource Love Letter Competition, Coulomb's Law is a simple game about attraction (and electromagnetism). In order to bring a positive charge toward the goal (a negative charge), you must place other positive charges to repel and guide it through the level. The game placed fifth in the competition.

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.

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.
