Sling shot, golf like, player movement mechanics

I have an idea for a top down game that uses a sling shot, pull back, pinball style of locomotion for the character. This would be for touch screen devices like ipad or android. I tried to search it but I wasnt very able to find any into regarding this. I’m sure it’s a super simple mechanic to program with c++ or blueprints but being that all my knowledge is in content creation(environments, fix, etc) I’d like to see if anyone can link me to a thread or to a tutorial that can get me started. I’d say this is 60% of my game programming wise, so building a prototype of that would be a huge boost of confidence to learn the rest of the workload I would need to learn.
