Stadium Billiard

Doctor How Caught in Chaos Pool!

You will assume the role of Doctor How Inhell, an unfamous alcoholic scientist. One stormy monday, while he was playing Billiard with some friends something strange happened... He had been caught into a chaotic ray shoot by Professor Lyapunov, an unknown mad pseudoscientist, and sent to a strange interdimensionless place called Chaos Pool (somewhere not so far from this universe). During his epic adventure he will have to understand the chaotic behaviour of a stadium billiard shape, and adapt his play skills... only empirical knowledge, luck and you will save him from an uncertain destiny... Do not try to integrate it.

Just two stages...

Some problems in my job didn't left me time to prepare more billiard shapes... But well, the game is playable and reasonably fun. Thank you all for the comments and hope you enjoy it.

Brand new version! Now with real chaotic stuff

Just uploaded the first chaotic version of the game.

Also an intermediate stage with just some aesthetic issues and story.

Score 10 points for the first chaotic stage: The Stadium Billiard

Seems easy, doesn't it?

Gameplay

In fact this will be some kind of a billiard game with simple rules. One blue ball and two red ones. You shoot with the blue one and have to kick each of the other ones with it (2 points) or kick one making it kick the other one (1 point).

For shooting, you will simply point and click. How hard you kick is inversely proportional to how long the pointing line is (lighter red line means also harder kick). This makes as much difficult to make an accurate kick as much harder you want to kick. Just like in real life ;-)

I have simple but enough realistic punctual particle kinematics in a square billiard. In next stages there will be a stadium, a Sinai and maybe some other fancy shapes as a cardioid, a mushroom or so.

For more information about chaotic billiards, you can take a look at wikipedia.

Doctor How Caught in Chaos Pool!

He had been caught into a chaotic ray shoot by Professor Lyapunov, an unknown mad pseudoscientist, and sent to a strange interdimensionless place called Chaos Pool (somewhere not so far from this universe).

During his epic adventure he will have to understand the chaotic behaviour of several billiard shapes, and adapt his play skills... only empirical knowledge, luck and you will save him from an uncertain destiny...
