Spirograph. I found the original version of that game a couple years ago, and I've played once a month or so since then. I love trying to make pretty patterns, or see how long an orbit I can get into to rack up my score.

Oh wow, I got a couple sorta like that, but nothing with that complexity! You're very good!

That was one of my better ones. More frequently, the orbit is a lot more spaced out, with a quarter of an inch or more between one orbit and the next. Pure luck was that one.

Practice makes perfect: if you play it enough, you'll start to get a feel for how to get a good orbit. Obviously, the more gravitational bodies there are, the harder it is to do. I've never managed a really long, drawn-out run with more than two planets.

I managed to do the same thing (only not as tightly) by totally fluke. Looked really cool!

Yeah, I got a spacier trefoil at one point...

Oh, and level 16 sucks!!!!! I'm giving up on it. I always get sucked back to those two grey planets right in front of my slingshot...

Wow, I'm surprised, how many tries did you give it?

A bunch, and then I got tired and went to bed. It had been a long day...
