This is air hockey, with a shuffleboard element. You can bounce the other pucks out of the circle, to stop them from accumulating points, and you can also bounce off the walls for trick shots like in Air Hockey. All together, it's quite fun- and I love a good physics based game. The only challenge here is that even on easy, sometimes it seems like the AI is a little too physics knowledgable, I seriously saw him explode my pucks with the expensive puck- knocking mine out, bouncing back, to knock his into a perfect 20.. I personally suspect cheating if someone managed that in real life.. and considered themselves the 'easy' mode. Serious puck control, I think I'm being hustled.
