What's NewImproved graphics, game play, and Help. Can reset any table or the whole game.
App DescriptionHave you ever wondered what it would be like to play on a polygon-shaped billiards table? You can easily line up a shot that would hit one bumper before it goes into a pocket. How about a shot that bounces twice? Three times? How about ten times? PolygonTrix™ is a digital arcade game that lets you explore the geometry and dynamics of these polygonal spaces.
Geometry? Don't worry! You'll have precise control over your aim. You can drag the ball around if you think that will help. A trace of the lineup is always shown, and the Tracer lets you know whether your shot will succeed or just stop on its last bounce.
Each time you "bag" a pocket, PolygonTrix shows (for fun) a geometric pattern made by extending your lineup through 512 bounces on a magically ideal table with no pockets or friction.
Trix is more about geometry than physics. Shooting a ball through ten bounces without the aid of the Tracer might be fun, but you'd go insane trying to hit a pocket. So, this is more of a puzzler than a physical pinball or billiards game. In a future version, when you bag a pocket we will show the ball bouncing around and into the pocket and show the balls moving in the magazine to add some action and fun. For now, follow the bouncing ball in your imagination.
PolygonTrix has seven tables in the shape of regular polygons, from the triangle up to the nonagon. The portion of the first screen shot shows the first ball being played on level 11 of the triangular table. The shot is very nearly lined up — just a tweak of a degree-minute or two will bag the pocket. Or, maybe the ball could be moved to the left (or would it be to the the right?) to line the shot up. Try it and see!
