I Stand Corrected
THIS is the best billiards app. I think Pro Pool & Snooker is a little more refined in graphics, but this is the superior overall app. It's the only one with Straight Pool, which I greatly have wanted to play a while now; it has Snooker and all the same variants as PP&S, but it's quick "play as many frames as you feel like" approach allows for more lunch break friendly play (hence the double-meaning title Pool Break); AND it has the best carom billiards play of all the 3-cushion apps out there!
Short of adding English Billiards, this is near perfect! It's all the best variants in one app, so you don't need several!
My only request is making one of the cue balls in the cushion billiard games to yellow, instead of off-white with dots.
Very nice app - highly recommended.
Wonderful for practicing the mental aspect of pool. The physics feel quite realistic although I am still an intermediate player at best. Three features that could improve the experience; first I would like to have a button that could zoom out directly overhead to see the entire table and balls. Currently the zoom is positioned dependent on the cue ball's location. If the cue ball is at one end of the table, it is hard to see possible shots at the other end. Second, I would suggest in the practice, place and shoot module, the option of a button to reset a prearranged shot repeatedly. Third, I think an optional ghost ball in the aim setting would be quite useful as in other games.
Great pool, multiple live players
First, the pool simulation is fantastic, rules thorough for several types of games, and physics beyond belief (literally). It's not easy to program that, and it runs fast across devices and iOS releases. Never crashes or hangs; very rare network latency.
Second, and as important, is the social aspect, if one ventures into the Network games, pitting oneself against others on wifi or cellular. The "Server" keeps stats and arranges games, and therein one meets players of varying behavior. That's network multiplayer games, unmoderated.
Lastly, some abandon games or if chat's on you meet friendly or otherwise. Some of the names people choose I wouldn't want my kids using as words.
But after days of mostly joy and seeing wizardry rarely seen in a real table, the "fair" server usually pairs me with a player for whom the game works well.
If you like AI, could be good. If you want to interact, it's not like Sony or Xbox platform for massively parallel multiplayer. But it's a start and shows what can happen.
