Bug#178611: RFP: xspringies -- A mass and spring simulation game

Package: wnpp
Version: unavailable; reported 2003-01-27
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : xspringies
  Version         : 1.12

  Description     : A mass and spring simulation game

 XSpringies is a mass and spring simulation system.  It's intended use is more
like that of a game, than some design package.

  It's written using Xlib only.  No Motif or any other widgets sets are used.

  The animation in XSpringies is done using an off-screen Pixmap.  The next
frame is drawn on this pixmap, then is blitted onto the screen.  Since the
frame rate is about 30 frames per second, slower machines (or machines which
have poorly written bit-blitting code) will be deathly slow and blinky.
  But now, in the days of fast happy machines, you might find yourself turning
down the timestep some so you can see what's going on..
