Windows 8 has given developers the chance to start developing apps on a new and exciting platform, and the best way win over lots of users is to create better and better games. Other mobile operating systems have thousands of games ready for gamers worldwide, and we are glad that the new platform is getting much attention.
Mobile gaming has picked up drastically in the last few years, mostly thanks to the advancements in mobile phones and tablets, nowadays being capable of rendering much more complex graphics than before. One important part of game development was physics, the main feature that made games realistic. And now, we can safely assume that mobile developers have nailed it, and one more example of a physics game is 3D paperball for Windows 8/RT.
3D Paperball for Windows 8/RT
When this type of game appeared on the online stores, many though they weren’t going to last for too long, mostly because the main idea was to throw an object (be it a basketball, football or a paper ball) and hit the designated target. There wasn’t much passed this, and some had their doubts (like they had with endless running games, and look how that turned out), but despite this, these games have flourished.
Today we have an excellent example of such a game, published by A Trillion Games Ltd under the name 3D Paperball. The game is very similar to the Android Paper Toss, and players have to shoot a paper ball into a trash can. Although this might seem simple, sometimes it is far from it.
Unlike the Android game mentioned before, Paperball has the benefit of offering the player a fully three dimensional environment, where the entire room is the playing field and the skill of a player is measured by the most tricky shot possible.
The player’s goal is to throw the paper ball in the trash bin by making as many bounces as possible off different objects in the room. The scores are compared via a leaderboard, which makes the game competitive.
In terms of aspect, 3D Paperball for Windows 8 has some pretty good textures and nicely designed environment, but it misses the “wow” factor, which makes a good game, great. Even though the level designers have done a great job in creating the game esthetics, they don’t seem that realistic.
We don’t see this as a major disadvantage but it was worth mentioning, so if you are in search of a good and competitive physics game, then we recommend giving 3D Paperball a try.
