I have a 2D side-view game with object attributes such as x, y, speedX, etc. Now I want to throw a given object from any place on the screen onto a defined goal place, in such a way that its trajectory looks somewhat normal (with gravity, it making a curve and such). Imagine an enemy is destroyed and what he stole flies from him back towards the stolen object's origin. (I do have physics via Box2D in this game, but for this particular need, it seems I require a manual approach; for one thing, the object is allowed to pass other bridges and such for the time it flies back to its main bridge.)
How would I go about this? I've tried moving manually by adjusting towards a target speed and such, but the trajectory and timing looks very unnatural. Thanks!
