Took YRHHRW7LLFEF

Perpetually interested, never mustered enough courage to purchase it.

My impressions are likely to be WOOT DIS GAM IS AWEZOME! type affair. I can almost remember the amount of time I lost in primary school classes playing this type of games with my friends

Just like the real thing! Except everything is digital and conveniently drawn/placed/moved/removed for ya! Now I missed 'accidentally' messing entire battlefields with the rubber to invalidate an impeding defeat

Love the degree of randomness and pencil pushing technique that mimic the real thing so closely. However, I don't remember curved shots being able to curve around objects so effectively though (it almost feels like cheating).

Wish the pencil can move faster to imitate the thrill of a flying (read: traveling) pencil.

Plus: drawing on paper never sounded so good

*Edit: I'm not too far into the tutorial but, can I rotate the paper?

Good to see people still enjoying this. Possibly the best "relatively unknown" iOS game I've ever played.

Yep curve shots were added to give that extra skill element and add variety - it is indeed pretty much impossible in real life, but is theoretically possible (if you could move at lightning speed / were Superman). The game effectively slows down time during the move, allowing the direction of slip to be changed mid-way through. I thought this added an element to the game the real version really would have benefitted from. So yes, it is a bit of an embellishment

I have always wanted to have the pencil fly off under physics when you release it (and fall if you let go and have it roll around freely on the paper) - this is something I definitely plan on revisiting for a future update.

Oh and yes the paper is fixed to the screen orientation, so to rotate the paper you need to rotate the device (the HUD will rotate to always be the right way up). This is because I found it would often suddenly rotate the paper when you don't want it to (not ideal when you're in the middle of taking a shot!)

Great to hear new people are still discovering and appreciating the game!
