The implementation of the amoeba control algorithm involves potential fields, but there is one large NO.
 
 
The physics of motion in the game is given here by the following equations:
 
speed_x + = (nx * max_speed - speed_x) * INERTION_FACTOR /mass;
 
speed_y + = (ny * max_speed - speed_y) * INERTION_FACTOR /mass;
 
It turns out physics with friction and inertia, which all spoils. If physics is not taken into account, and direct the force vector (nx) directly to the nearest target, then it ...
