Polyhedra in a computer game

Polyhedra in a computer game
It is not often possible to meet polyhedra outside of math textbooks. And if such geometric shapes as a cube, a prism and a cylinder are found on a daily basis, then the Truncated Octahedron and the Small Stellated Dodecahedron are simply not found.
The creators of the computer game Color Bump 3D built all the action around geometric solids, including using stellated polyhedra.

Color Bump 3D is considered an arcade game. The creators of the project from the studio Good Job Games (https://goodjobgames.com/) have released several similar toys, but this one is considered the highest quality. The player will go through the levels of varying difficulty, while showing ingenuity, dexterity and speed of reaction. You need to take control of the balls of different colors and lead them through the game strip, without touching objects of a different color. And also to break all barriers on the way to the end of the round.

Color Bump 3D game can be interesting from the point of view of two school subjects - mathematics and physics.


Color bump 3D in terms of the subject of mathematics.

All obstacles are made in the form of geometric solids:
- Cubes;
- Prisms;
- Balls;
- Conuses;
- Quadrangular pyramids;
- Cylinders;
- Truncated octahedron;
- Stellated polyhedra in the form of the Small stellated dodecahedron:
and etc.


Color Bump 3D in terms of the subject of physics.

All movements of objects obey the laws of physics. Each geometric solid has a mass corresponding to the visible size.
When a game ball pushes a larger object, the latter will slowly move. And if the ball gets into small objects, they will fly apart.
Playing in Color Bump 3D we can feel how such a thing as “impulse” works.
In classical mechanics, the momentum of a solid is equal to the product of the mass of a solid by its velocity P = m V
A game ball, colliding with other objects, acts on them, shifts them. Since the mass of the game ball remains always constant, then for a different impact force we can change its speed. In other words, we can increase the momentum of the ball by increasing the speed.
The harder we push the ball, the more impulse it has and with more destructive force acts on other objects.

About the game itself
In each round, you need to wreak havoc on the surrounding space. This contributes to the victory and allows the player to rise in the rating list of users. With the passage of the levels of the player is not limited in time, so you can safely and carefully dodge obstacles on the way to victory.
The essence of the game is to bring the ball through the entire strip to the victorious finish. In this lane, you will interfere with various obstacles such as small groups of figures. They need to be completely destroyed. The whole difficulty lies in the fact that some of them are very easily destructible, while others are not heavier, so it will be much more difficult to pass the level.
The creators have offered users about a hundred fascinating and challenging levels that differ from each other. At each successive level, the obstacles become bigger and heavier. The game even has levels at which blocks of obstacles can be in motion and it becomes very difficult to break them.
