A downloadable game for Windows

An entry to the informal TIGSource Love Letter Competition, Coulomb's Law is a game about love and attraction (and electromagnetism). In order to guide the lovesick positive charge to meet with the object of his affections (a negative charge), you must place other positive charges to repel him and guide him 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.
