Graphics are pretty but the physics are way off. The ball always seems to get alot of extra roll and I can't seem to carrom the ball because it never comes off the bank the way it should.

Thanks for your comment! Actually, we tweaked the physics and gravity in an update that is waiting to be approved by Apple.

I didn't get to play the game, but I do like the style you're aiming for, but then again I might be biased as The Great Gatsby is one of my favorite books. Judging from the gameplay video I could only hope that isnt the game's soundtrack. I would lean more towards music fitting the era - 1920s ragtime, jazz - "Hello ma Baby, Hello ma honey, Hello ma ragtime gal!"

Great game! I appreciate the numerous minor updates over the past few days. I like the old-tyme theme and appreciate the nod to the F. Scott Fitzgerald era. While it works well for the short-medium range shots, the control scheme esp. on longer shots needs some finer-tuning. Also, the swing sensitivity takes some getting used to even with allowing gamers to personalize the touch.

One suggestion would be to have as an option the ability to track shots. This is key for the longer shots where users aren't sure where their putt would ricochet. This can be denoted by dashed lines. Additionally, you can have users choose "no tracking", "one track" (dashed lines up to first ricochet point), "two tracks" (dashed lines up to two ricochet/carom points) or full tracks. I've seen this implemented on some billiard games for the old Palm OS back in the day, and not only made for more accurate gameplay but better study of the angles as well.

Anyway, just a thought..good lookin' game overall.
