Vector Ball

Vector Ball is a game based on Ink Ball, instead of a pen, you use vectors to move the ball.
There are 4 difficulties: easy, medium, hard, and very hard.
Each difficulty has 5 levels.

--------------------------
How to Play Vector Ball:
--------------------------
You use your mouse to place down vectors.
When a ball hits a vector, it will gain speed according to the direction and size of the vector.
Click up or w to increase vector size.
Click down or s to decrease vector size
The lowest vector size possible will stop the ball
Click a or left to turn vector placer left
Click d or right to turn vector placer right
Remember, don't let the ball of the wrong color go into the wrong colored hole!

This is a really cool idea, but there are a few bugs. It sometimes seems to randomly tell me "Game over" even when nothing went wrong. Also, on level 4 I got orange balls, but there was no orange hole - it was covered up by the green hole!! I think it would be better if the levels had predefined layouts rather than being randomly generated. Also, it's really easy just to put a "stop" vector at the launch point, so that you get a ball which isn't initially moving. It's kind of cheating, I know... but maybe there should be some way to prevent it from happening.

thanks davmac, I have fixed these issues, and fixed the algorithm on which the random board is generated. It should be 100% flawless now (except for a few cases)... Just wondering, should the ball not be affected by friction? Because friction really makes this game a lot easier than I thought.

abd what i mean by not stop is that even if I exit greenfoot completely, it still won't go away. Sometimes even if i quit my browser it still continues.

You have to have three hands to really be able to play this game. One hand on w/s, one on left/right, and one on the mouse. I would recomend changing left/right to a/d, respectively.
