Game description:

The Billiard game simulates one of the most popular games of Billiards. While playing the player can activate any billiard ball to strike and to move any other balls he wants. The player has an opportunity to select different modes of the game. After pressing the “Billiard” starting icon the menu of modes to be selected appears on the screen.

Mode 1: ( One Player )

In this mode the player can play with himself. In order to start the game it is necessary to enter the player’s name and to select the option of the balls amount (16, 11, 7, 4) which are going to be used on the billiard-table. After that it is necessary either to activate or to cancel sound effects and then to press the “Play the game” button. The “Edit” option is available for this mode.

By pressing this button you get the opportunity to position the balls at your discretion. For positioning the balls you should mark the ball to be moved and the point of its destination on the billiard-table – as the result the ball will automatically move to the new position. After balls positioning is completed you can revert to the main menu by pressing the “Done” button. In order to start the game in the edited mode it is necessary to press the “Play the Game” button.

Attention! After the edit mode has been completed if the “Edit” option marker is cancelled the game starts in the standard mode with the balls amount selected before. In order to start the game in the edited mode it is necessary to activate the “Edit” option marker and press the “Play the Game” button.

Mode 2: (Two Players)

This mode allows two players to play simultaneously. In order to start the game it is necessary to enter the names of the first and the second players, then to mark the player who is going to start the game as the first. After selecting the required “Sound”, “Text”, “Animation” options you should press the “Play the Game” button.

Mode 3: (Palm Opponent) (Coming soon Billiard v.2.0)

In this mode your game partner is represented by Palm. After entering your name you should select the Palm mastery level. The “I’m first” option selected by you allows you to start the game as the first (the first stroke). After selecting the required “Sound”, “Text”, “Animation” options it is necessary to press the “Play the Game” button.

Starting the Game:

Depending on the selected mode after pressing the “Play the Game” button one of the following three billiard – tables appears on the screen:

.

The name of the player who is going to start the game is black high-lighted. The amount of balls pocketed by this player is indicated near it. Before playing, you may place the starting ball in any point of the field's first quarter.

There is an information field below where statistics about the “balls in each pocket” as well as text information are displayed. The billiard-pocket where the latest ball has been pocketed by the certain player is black high-lighted. In the centre of the information field there is an information about the balls which haven’t achieved the goal (that means that the ball hasn’t touched any other balls on the billiard-table after a stroke). Later on, the ball in the pocket will compensate every penalty points ( it means that the value of the "F" must be equal zero, in order to increase your points).

Attention! The information field displays only the information concerning the active player (the player whose name is black high-lighted).

In order to start the game:

1. With the help of Stylus by single pressing – to select the ball intended for a stroke.

2. With the help of Stylus - to select the point of the movement direction on the black active rectangle around the billiard-table.

For more precise correction of the stroke direction you may use the following correction buttons:

3. To select the stroke power.

The stroke power is graduated from 0 up to 100 with scale division equal to 2 units. The digital value and graphic image of the stroke power are displayed in the two neighboring windows. You may select the strength of the stroke by pushing buttons "up" and "down", or by touching the strength's indicator.

4. Press the “Go” button

By pressing the “New” button the main menu is displayed where you can change the option parameters.
