Nice game—could be a 5-star with a couple improvements

The game plays well, but I can’t figure out why the developer didn’t orient the table to match the screen, which would allow the game window to be much larger. I don’t think it would have adversely affected game play. Also, the rules should be adjustable in the preferences. For example, I prefer to pay call pocket for all shots and to not allow slop shots (spot them or at least end the turn. Lastly, it’s a bit too hard to get a good break. I have yet to not leave a cluster of balls after the break. Oh, and it might be nice to be able to adjust the cue-ball contact to apply some english.

Despite the above comments and suggestions, the game really does play well and is fun to play.

Fun, but a bit disappointing

First off, for a free game, I really can't complain. The game is beautiful. It really looks nice.

That said, the AI is a bit lacking. It is so purposefully bad its kinda like watching a really bad actor try really hard. Funny, but sad too.

The other thing, I just sank the 8-ball on the break. The game is not over! It's wanting me to take another shot? The game should be over and I should win… 8-ball on the break is an instant-win.

I have screenshot if needed…

Update: After returning to the game I sank a ball and it awarded me the win. Still, it should have been awarded after the break.

Fun 8-ball game for mindless fun

It's a fun game that I play sometimes for mindless fun. Some of the other reviews take the game way too seriously. You should be able to figure out the rules of play as you actually play it or you can look them up. I'm fine with the novice level of the computer player and how it seems to purposefully flub on certain shots that seem really easy to make. It's quirky at times in how the computer player gets to place the cue ball where it likes for seemingly no reason, but it's not a big deal. It's just light, mindless fun between work tasks.
