Great billiards game!
Play this mostly on my iPad2...seems to work well on the bigger screen rather than my 4S. The physics are spot on and a great way to hone your skill level.
Would like to see better graphics when the ball goes into the pocket...small request, but with all the other superb ball action, this seems very doable. Two features that would receive a 5 star rating would be a practice module where you could practice bank shots, etc. Also, having a "rewind" mode of the previous shot would really improve upon building up your skill level. Great game...well worth the $!
great game, needs a little work still
this game has killer graphics and very realistic physics, and a number of really great game play options. however i would love to see a few key improvements in the next update.
1. stability...it crashes quite frequently, especially when choosing certain games.
2. RULES...several games like Killer do not have RULES text. no idea how to play them.
3. Landscape flexibility...it *does* work in landscape and portrait but only in one of the two landscape positions. i have to turn the ipad upside down, given how i have it in my case, in order to use it in landscape.
4. view options...each time you're a shooter, the game sets up the view in terms of how close it is to the balls. i would love the ability to BACK UP the view as i see fit.
a couple of these are critical, but overall this is a great game. i look forward to improvements.
I have played a lot of mobile pool games and this I have to say is the closest to the pc game VP3 the mechanics and physics are great and I love the fact you can change the table speeds. Also the competition feature is awesome. The English is realistic and the game is a great get away for a few moments at a time. I play APA and love the APA rule system. For a buck ninety-nine it is more then worth it.
