Dont Be Fooled!!!
I absolutely love this game yet loath it at the same time. The game modes and controls are fantastic. Your opponents on the other hand are ... Well they beggar belief, the shots they can play in the later levels i promise will have you on the verge of throwing your handset across the room. However its this that makes the game so much more playable. The shots are so unrealistic and just outright impossible it charges a determination to beat them and delivers a great sense of accomplishment once you have!
A fun a challenging app to keep you entertained for hours!!
Good game, some rules are wrong
The game is essentially a good pool game, though there are a few issue. One being what many have said, is that the AI opponents can make some impossible shots sometimes, cleaning up the table. The other issue is that some of the rules are wrong. One major one being in 9-Ball in that even if you hit the lowest numbered ball first, then manage to pot the 9 ball (in the same shot), you won't win. The 9 ball just get puts back on the table.
I also encountered a foul when pocketing the 8 ball from behind the baulk line after a foul by an opponent in 8-ball. It was the only ball left!
Controls can be annoying
Like the style, game modes and graphics but controls are toooooo annoying.
If my finger slightly slips : miss the shot.
No undo option (although i can understand why there wouldnt be one to prevent cheating).
Worst part is that if there is an alert on my phone during a shot - it messes up my shot.
I think this could be easily fixed by introducing a new feature that allows you to line up shot and power and then have a button in corner you can press to say 'take shot'.
Other than that its a good game.
