An extract on #special_shots
The story is set in Pakistan against the backdrop of the War on Terror and the prevalent consequences of the war that have stigmatised Pakistan as a country that breeds and indoctrinates terrorism. The filmmakers intended Son of Pakistan to enlighten the masses and the world at large about Pakistan and its people against the backdrop of the War on Terror's consequences. The filmmakers intended to counter a negative prejudice about Pakistan and its people as terrorists and to show their perspective that the people of Pakistan follow a peaceful way of life.
The movie tells the story of a dutiful police officer S.P. Islam who comes from a patriotic upbringing as does his brother. Son of Pakistan depicts uncertainty in the concept of patriotism while taking the protagonist's perspective of compassion towards his fellow citizens when he cannot be certain that everyone shares his beliefs. In a place of uncertainty being an enforcer of law where he comes across a potential terrorist every day, he can't trust anyone and has only himself to trust.
Son of Pakistan mostly faced negative reviews. A critical review published in the Express Tribune stated "Son of Pakistan disappoints." There are some sources who praises the film, especially the director and producer for their courageous effort.
The film opened to an occupancy of 30% - 40%. It was released after a long delay and got just few cinemas for release. Son of Pakistan got a poor start but managed to do good business. The critics are rating it as a "Below Average" movie.
PangYa had servers in Japan and Thailand. On December 12, 2016, PangYa's servers in North America shut down, along with the official website and forums, while the Korean servers were closed on August 29, 2016.
PangYa's publishers were Gamepot Inc for Japan and ini3 for Thailand.
From 2005 until March 2009, the game was known as Albatross18 in North America. On March 8, 2009, control of the game was passed from OGPlanet to SG Interactive (then Ntreev USA), which closed the game for a month for technical upgrades and re-released the game as PangYa a month later.
Late in May 2014, SG Interactive transferred the publishing rights to MAYN Interactive and transferred the publishing rights to SmileGate Europe in late 2014.
PangYa's gameplay is designed similar to most other golf games. The power and accuracy of a shot are determined by a meter located at the bottom of the screen, using the "three-click method": one click to activate the meter's bar, one click to set power, and one click to set accuracy. Clicking is either done by moving the mouse pointer over the bar and clicking, or simply pressing the space bar.
Should the player hit the ball with perfect (or almost-perfect) accuracy, the shot is called a "PangYa". Missing a PangYa will result in a loss of power, and either a 'hook' (where the ball angles to the left from the intended trajectory) or a 'slice' (where the ball angles to the right from the intended trajectory).
The similarity of PangYa with other online golf games end here. The game's graphics are anime derived, with many of its features stemming from creative imagination, as opposed to realism. Golf clubs resembling household products or baseball bats are used by some characters, and courses such as Silvia Cannon and Wiz Wiz are set in fantasy realms. Additionally, physically impossible special shots can be performed.
