Tossing A Frisbee

so i posted a vertex hit tester a few days ago. it was my intent to build something like this game i'm building in unity 3d for the iPad...

....in qc and the vertex hit tester was my first step. i think all the components are in qc all ready like forces, mouse, track ball etc...

so i decided on going with a frisbee golf type of game instead of a tower defense sort of thing.

was wondering if i could get any feedback as to how intuitive steering the disc is etc...

the first shot is a mid range.... you need to steer the disc into diamond inside the basket to load a new level.....

the second basket is a long range shot...

both shots are make-able....

you aim the disc with your mouse xy and can pump the disc up for extra loft until gravity brings you down.

there are a few basic components. power, hook, range, and loft. all of which are derived from quaternion rotational attributes of the frisbee object.

eventually i will get around to designing 18 levels with a regular golf type of logic. right now its just a hole in one challenge until i get the physics worked out.

this is a fun shot as well...

a sort of sky dive glide type of thing. i made the targets easier to hit while programing....
