After one day of trying and researching on Silverlight I implemented a simple game. My intention was to create a game that runs in fullscreen on a tablet PC including the usage of the stylus pen. I thought it could be pretty cool to build a billard table, because it feels like a real game, if you use the stylus as cue while playing with virtual balls. And here is the result.
For sure it’s not that realistic, but it shows the features that Silverlight may afford for a new web experience. Another idea for a game project that matches this kind of gameplay could be a minigolf application. Hmmm. I can see myself staying in front of my lowered tablet while swinging a stick (with my attached stylus). ;-)
If you are interested in the sources of the billard game, you can download the xaml, js and html files here.
