For FREE, it is an excellent value!

Just got through with my first full game. The graphics and the physics are very good! No help, and no score keeping, but it’s 8 Ball. The table tells it all. In 8 Ball, the player to get the first ball in determines stripes or solids. If you drop a striped ball, you are stripes. If you drop a solid ball, you are solids. If the computer drops one first, whatever he got, you are the opposite. On your turn, you must hit one of your balls first, but you can choose any ball to get in the pocket. Once all your balls are cleared, you must then make the 8 ball. You’ll have to call your pocket for the 8 ball.

A lot of people in different regions play 8 Ball a little differently, but the differences are usually minor rule changes. For that reason, my short appraisal may have missed a rule or two. But all in all, it plays well.

Use your right mouse button held down to adjust your aim. Aim can be fine tuned by the clockwise and counter-clockwise arrow buttons. Adjust the power with the meter on both the left and right. Shoot by pressing the Shoot button. Enjoy!

It

Okay, so my first thought was "this game is awesome!" Alright, something else. I don't know much about pool, but I know enough to know that the game is cheating a little. How do i know? well, i know that if you get the black ball into a pocket before all the other balls are in the pockets, you lose. But the computer got the black ball in the pocket and at least 5 balls were remaining, yet the computer won. (The computer's name is player 2, so that's what we'll call it) Another thing. I know that if you shoot a ball into a pocket, you get an extra turn well it seems as if every time i get a ball in a pocket, I don't get another turn. Yet when player 2 gets a ball into a pocket, it gets at least 3 extra turns. i don't get it. Would I recommend this game? Maybe. Is this game fun and addictive, besides all the cheating? Absoloutly. Am i going to keep this game? Yes, or at least until the cheating gets annoying. Thanks for reading my review. (Oh, one last thing: I wish there was a "help" button to this game, because i had to look up how to play pool on the internet in order to win the game.)

Stupid AI

You know what I love this game, but I’ve played it too much to notice some flaws that I would love to point out. Firstly, there should be a level of toughness option, because the AI is just not programmed to win or be competitive. If you do a couple of bad shots, the AI just starts to play really bad, hitting stupid shots and stuff. Try scoring all the shots for the AI and it will start play really bad. And I noticed when the AI has a chance to win sometimes, they just blow it, doing something stupid. Please put a hardness setting to it, would love to play a tougher opponent. but overall this game is great to pass time, thanks for making it!
