How is an ion engine like [and unlike] a soccer game?

  • Instead of a soccer ball, there's a positive charge ejected from the blue/green gun.
  • Instead of kicking the ball with their feet, players guide the charge using their own positive and negative charges.

Your opponent? Your computer!

  • You control the purple Plus and the purple Minus.
  • The computer controls the Blue players.
  • If the charge ends up in the Purple Goal, you get a point.
  • If the charge ends up in the Blue Goal, the computer gets a point.
