Here's another little demo of one of the new features coming in Magnetic Billiards: Blueprint version 2.0 - REPLAY!

This feature is kind of a cousin to the UNDO feature, but more cosmetic, and just added as a bit of fun really.

After taking any shot you have to option to REPLAY that shot, just to watch it all over again. That's it really! You get another nice new paper stip effect, and get to see your awesome skills playing out again right before your eyes. There's no gameplay benefit or reward or penalty, it's just a nice little cool feature that we wanted to add.

There's an extra wrinkle to it as well. Whenever you take a record-breakin shot - getting the most BOUNCEs or BUZZes or your highest SHOT SCORE, the shot taken is automatically remembered by the game. You can access these record breaking shots, and replay them at any time, via the Data & Stats menu.

So you really can show off your amazing 100 BUZZ shot to your friends, or grab a screenshot / video of it later to prove you really did it.

Possibly a subtle joke on your part, but "#3" is a replay of the number used for the "undo" feature.

Ooops, yeah, typo. Cheers!

 

I really like how it has been integrated into records, the coolest use for such a feature by far!
