[prMac.com] Arlington, Texas, USA - Idle Diversions announces the release of its second iPhone game, Quantum Pool. Quantum Pool is what Pool could be if reality didn't get in the way. A unique blend of pool, pinball, putting courses and crazy physics, QP is in a category by itself. Each table has unique features and challenges including square and triangular balls, fission, pinball bumpers and even a black hole.
Gameplay is easy, there is no cue ball, just two sets of colored balls, select one ball and try to knock in balls of the opposite color for 10 points, or lose 10 points if you wrongly hit the selected color in, and lose 1 point if you put nothing in. The holes include the usual pool ones, holes in the floor, and of course the black hole, which sucks in errant balls.
There are 11 tables to play on. Select a ball, drag around to give a direction, pick the power and go. Many settings of the physics engine are available to experiment with such as bounce, friction, damping, mass, inertia and ball size. Make it easy, make it hard, or even make it weird. Settings and high scores for each table are saved to the device.
Quantum Pool the first in a line of 2d physics based games to be released. This game is free and ad-supported. Quantum Pool requires a minimum of iPhone 2.2 and is compatible with both the iPhone and the iPod Touch.
