An one-button way to control the player coming from the past

I always loved one-button games. First, they can be played with just one button. Second, in the mobile game era, it’s easy to port an on-button concept to an one-tap concept.

Almost five years ago (ages!!) I showed a strange way to move the player with Flash made with AS2, and I find it interesting to port it to AS3, to be ported again in other languages.

Since you can find the complete theory in the original post, I will just post the AS3 source code:

and this is the result:

Press and keep the mouse pressed to move the ball with a given direction and speed

During next days I’ll port this prototype into the most famous formats.
