This is an in-development Curling game that displays in a tall window. I play it on a rotated 24" display in portrait orientation running at 1200x1920. The taller your display the longer the window and play area.

Note: playing on a less tall display will mean the game runs faster in a smaller window.

Controls

Use the cursors to play (space bar is optional). Some controls are only available when the rock is within certain sections of the ice, as per official rules.

  • up/space = add power
  • left/right (whilst adding power) = adjust aim/heading
  • left/right (whilst not adding power) = adjust curl
  • down (after rock is past red hog line) = sweep in front of rock

How to play

  1. Hold up/space to set power
  2. Whilst powering, adjust aim
  3. After powering, set curl
  4. Once the rock passes the red hog line, you can sweep
    (causes rock to move quicker and be less affected by curl, slightly)

Scoring

  • Closest team and number of rocks are shown
  • Winner is shown after 16 rocks
  • Game resets after 16 rocks

Rules

Project goals

  • accurate physics
  • tournament structure
  • working on size display

Known issues

  • CPU rocks are currently added randomly before every player turn
  • no visualisation of CPU turn power/aim/curl
  • physics scaled only for display with portrait orientation, 16:9 aspect, non-retina display (window height ~1850px)
  • playing on a display less tall will result in a faster game
  • if you move the window onto a display that is less tall you'll see the shot values at the top of the screen but won't be able to see your rock until it's nearing the tee
  • ...may well be broken in other ways!

How tall is this window!?
