If you’ve ever thought that billiards can’t surprise you anymore, here comes Cuebox – the first real 3-dimensional billiards game developed by 3rD World Games. What makes this app exceptional is that the balls are floating inside a box that replaced classic pool table. It is a change of perspective on traditional billiards that provides the whole new dimension of fun with zero gravity.
“The idea behind Cuebox was to create a game that brings whole new set of possible movements while keeping classic rules of billiards and typical user interface known from popular pool games” – says Daniel Korczak, the founder of 3rD World Games.
The app enables you to play the most popular 8-ball and 9-ball games in a completely new version. The rules are the same as their classic equivalents, the novelty is that you get to aim in every possible direction. Above that, Cuebox introduces 3D-Ball – a game with bigger number of balls, which makes it better suited for the extra space.
What’s more, you can personalize the settings according to your taste. You may pick the table, that will suit you best, out of the given 6. What you have on your disposal are different shapes, sizes and the locations of the pockets. Then, thanks to awesome HD graphics, you’re free to select your favourite skin for the table and for the balls.
If you’re done with choosing your personal settings, pick the player mode. You can enjoy Cuebox either with friends in 2 player mode or you can play alone against a computer-controlled opponent with 3 various levels of difficulty. If that’s all a piece of cake, you can change the size of the pockets or shorten the aiming lines to make the game more challenging, and off you go!
There are different camera movements to give you a whole and clear view of the table. Track the actions from different perspectives and change cameras to see the table from whatever angle you want. After each shot the camera swings to a different mode, including fish eye, which gives an additional and interesting visual effect.
Apart from all that, Cuebox comprises also many other options. There are, for instance, statistics where you can check how your accuracy improves the more you play in 3 dimensions. To make the beginnings in the 3d pool easier, a quick tutorial is available for the users to have a grip on the controls. The game is optimized for both tablets and phones with the possibility to adjust graphics quality so that it runs smoothly also on weaker devices.
