Magnetic Billiards: Blueprint


Pick of the Week - MacBreak Weekly #297

Through the magic of twitter we were alerted to the MacBreak Weekly netcast video blog, where Jason Snell, editor of Macworld, was kind enough to name Magnetic Billiards: Blueprint as his pick of the week.

The whole netcast is a great watch, but if you don't have an hour and a half spare then you can jump straight to the Magnetic Billiards: Blueprint mention at 1 hour 25 minutes.

Jason suggests that maybe we made a mistake putting in an achievement for playing the game for one hour, as it's going to come as a bit of a shock when new players realise they've lost a whole hour to our game without realising it. What's he going to think when he sees the achievement for playing the game for a week?!

We've very honoured to be compared to Orbital though, which is a great iOS game, and one that I still play regularly to this day.
