You’re not a curling fan? Try Curling3D anyway and you’ll fall in love with curling and our game.
Curling3D is one of the best curling simulation games for one or two players. Similar to shuffleboard, the game is played on a flat ice curling sheet, roughly 15x150 feet. Players slide round stones of about 40 pounds towards bull's eye targets at either end. Two teammates may use brooms to sweep the ice in front of the moving stone.
Curling3D attempts to simulate the excitement of the game by incorporating many aspects of the actual sport. Fundamentally, curling is about force, mass, friction, momentum, rotation and collision. The app exploits the sophisticated physics engine built into the Android OS to generate a convincing simulation of all these elements as they interact. In the terminology of curling, the weight is the velocity of the stone; the turn is the rotation of the stone (which affects its trajectory); and the line is the direction of the throw or delivery. Curling3D allows the player to continuously and independently control all three, permitting advanced tactics such as the guard, takeout, and tap. In addition, the app allows the player to sweep the ice while their stone is moving, adjusting trajectory after the delivery.

A quick explanation of gameplay follows.
As the skip, you'll see the house in fullscreen, place the arrow on the ice wherever you'd like. You can drag the target around the house and the area in front of the house. This target will provide a line for your rock to travel but does not guarantee the placement of the rock. Your rock will curl off that line so keep that in mind when you choose your target. Once you are satisfied with the placement of the arrow click the ok button.
Now it is time to throw your stone. Choose a handle for your rock by clicking either the left or right arrow. To throw your rock, drag your finger along the screen. Watch your speed at the top of the screen, and lift your finger when you have reached your target speed. This is where your curling skill really comes into play! As a rough guide, a rock thrown at less than 6.5 will not reach the hog line and a rock thrown greater than 8.5 will pass through the house.
Once you have released your rock, you can sweep by brushing your finger across the screen. This will allow your rock to travel farther and in a straighter line. Watch the bar at the top of the screen to see how far you are from the centre of the house and to track your current speed.
Once the rock has come to a complete stop the screen will return to skip view and you repeat the process.
