Nine-ball is a unique form of pool in which players take turns pocketing balls, in order, beginning with the lowest numbered ball on the table and continuing until the last ball has been sunk. Turbonuke uses this premise as the basis of play in its latest game, Blueprint Billiards, a single-player, straightforward billiards game with some very nice features.
The mouse is used for aiming your shots, just aim the cue ball at the lowest numbered ball on the table (a flashing circle will highlight the next ball in play). While aiming, you are given some very helpful guides that show the trajectory, which really serve to make the game a lot more fun. Use the [arrow] keys to change the spin of the ball. This is very important in the strategy of causing the cue ball to rest where you need it for the next ball after taking a shot. If any player fails to sink a ball on their turn, their turn ends. If any player fails to hit the correct ball first before sinking a ball, the opponent player gets to take a free shot by placing the cue ball anywhere. Play continues unil the last ball has been pocketed, and the player who pockets the last ball, wins.
Play against an array of opponents of increasing skill levels as you prove who is master of the cloth. A really nice physics engine along with the guides and the spin capability makes this billiards game a lot of fun!
