This game is a computer science project made by students at MIPT. The greater part of all programming was made by me with some help of Roman Prokofyev, the model of a billiard table was made by Vladimir Muzychenko. The game has tons of bugs, but somehow it works 😅
By the time I started this project, I had about 1.5–2 years of experience with computer; before that I was not even able to copy a file in Windows. Despite the game is quite poor, this page is here to keep memories about the very beginning of what later became my career.
