Subject: Magnetic Billiards: Blueprint
Well, it took us far too long, but we've finally got the big update to Magnetic Billiards: Blueprint out today. This is version 2.0, with lots of new features and content. We're still planning further updates in the future, but probably on a more modest scale than this one, and maybe a bit more frequently as well.
If you like the game, don't forget to rate / review us on the App Store, as releasing an update hides away all the reviews from the previous version.
Release notes below:
• Pegs - a new Classic Game feature, where balls start off fixed in place on the table.
• Struts - a new Classic Game feature, where balls of different colours start off connected to each other.
• Undo - instantly undo bad shots, saving lives and protecting your Tariff!
• Replay - instantly replay the last shot taken, re-watch your brilliant shots!
• Record-breaking shots - the game stores some of your best ever shots to replay at any time.
• UNDOllars - earn and spend UNDOllars to Undo shots.
• Auto-resume - the game automatically saves if you quit the app mid-game, letting you continue playing later without losing your progress.
