Hi,

does anyone know how to recreate the bouncy ball effect in this game (Tangerines):

The most I can do at the moment is Pong-like rebounds off the wall...

Kind regards,

// Ball.java
class Ball
{
    public static final double GRAVITY = 6.0;

    public double x, y; // position vector
    public double vx, vy; // velocity vector

    public Ball(double x, double y, double vx, double vy)
    {
        this.x = x;
        this.y = y;
        this.vx = vx;
        this.vy = vy;
    }

    public move(double seconds)
    {
        x += seconds*vx;
        y += seconds*vy;
        if (somehow_collide_with_something)
        {
            x = collision_point_x; // that would be the same as x for floors
            y = collision_point_y; // that would be the floor's height for floors
            vx = reflection_of_vx_on_surface; // that would be the same as vx for floors
            vy = reflection_of_vy_on_surface; // that would be -vy on floors
        }
        vy += seconds*GRAVITY;
    }
}


or something like that (i would begin with something like the above and move forward modifying that).
