Dark Matter Search

Use your three probes to discover the location of dark matter blobs in this cluster by observing the probes' paths through space.
Click on Start to start get to the story, press Enter to start the game (yes it doesn't make sense)
Click and drag with the mouse to launch your probes, once all probes have been launched you have four guesses to find the dark matter. Click the left mouse button to make a guess; dark matter will be revealed if it lies within the shown radius.

Game complete!

I made a submission! I'm fairly happy with the concept and think I will work on it a little more. I already have a version that shows the positions of the dark matter at the end of the game but I wrote the couple of lines after the competition entry so I may upload it but not mark it final. It would be nice to be able to restart or have some progression of levels but it's currently a one and done and then you have to restart the game...
It shouldn't take long to check out the game as it's pretty short unless you just like watching the simulation.

Congratulations to everyone else that finished and thanks to the organisers.
