It needs some tweaks
That's a great pool game with the best graphics I've seen in a 3D pool game. The balls are just perfect, tho the screenshots don't show how good they are. Sound and physics are top-notch. However to get 5 stars it needs some tweaks: - Aiming guide options: (1) none; (2) just white ball line; and, (3) white ball + destination line (the current method) - Ability to resume a started tour - Statistics for Quick Play (winnings/losses) and even for tour mode - A way to revel the balls number when in top view - An option to disable the camera zoom when a shot is make Of course a real career mode would be wonderful considering the qualities this game has but it's something not simple to add. Considering this is the first game version for iPhone it's quite impressive.
What a great game of pool, but...
Strictly from a gameplay point of view, I think this game is the best pool simulation out right now on, bar none. But unfortunately there is a glitch in the career mode where even if you defeat your computer controlled opponent, the game still credits you for the loss and gives the win to the AI. This error makes the most important feature of the game unplayable becaue you can never advance to the next stage. It is a shame because this game is truly fantastic. I would rate the gameplay a 4.5, but as an overall product, until they fix the aforementioned issue, it is more along the lines of a 3 at this point. Hopefully the developers acknowledge this problem and fix this issue.
Great game, could use a practice mode
Great game, clean graphics, and very habit forming. I would give it a 5 if you addressed the following:
1. When the cue ball is against the rail, stick raises too high to select and pull for power. I have to go into overhead mode, and in that view, I can't pull full power cause the stick is at the edge of the screen.
2. Would very much like to see a practice mode where I can repeat a shot so I can fine-tune my skills. This is especially helpful when learning bank shots, kick shots, and multiple ball shots (hit the 4-ball into the 9-ball which then goes into a pocket).
