3D Pool Game

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
Play Billiards in a different style; Time Trial, Matrix Mode and 2 Player 15 Ball Mode.
In Time Trial you have a time limit of 4 minutes, in which you have to pocket balls as fast as you can to achieve more score. When you pocket more than one ball back to back, your multiplier will increase and which will boost your score and time.
In Matrix Mode, when you pocket a ball your score will be multiplied by the difference of your previous and current ball number if the current is more than the previous; but if the current is less, then your score is divided by the current ball number. So be careful.
In 2 Player 15 Ball Mode you can compete against your friend.
3 Different Modes.
3 Different Control Schemes.
This game is…okay. More like 2.5 stars. If you want a quick game of pool, with 3D graphics, then this game is okay. It doesn’t follow standard 8-ball rules (or any rules of the sort) and instead gives you points for each ball sunk until it is no longer possible for your opponent to gain enough points to beat you. If you play a one player game, it just keeps score for you for each ball you sink (the points are the number on the balls). You get three “lives” and lose them when you scratch. It has automatic aiming aid which I wish I had the option of turning off when I want a bigger challenge, but I can’t. There are no other choices for games…no 9-ball or 10-ball or other choices. Players cannot adjust English. Game physics are okay. Sometimes it feels right, but at other times the balls react strangely relative to the power you give the cue stick. I cannot recommend this game to anyone who like pool or billiards and wants a more authentic video pool experience, but you might like this game if you just want a really casual pool app for an arcade-style app.
I enjoy the graphics and realistic game play. The advice i would urge the developers to do is make a tutorial and give add the dynamics of “cue” or “spin”. Without this crucial property i would say this is a game is alright. Has a lot of potential to be a good Billiards game and hope to see updates with some added features.
