I had tried a different pool game, but didn't like it's format, too busy for me.. This, at least so far, looks like it is more like what I wanted. All I wanted was to play pool. This has a fairly decent aiming design. It shows different arrangements of balls on different shaped tables. All you do is shoot all the balls. I found that the different shaped tables can make for more interesting shots. The same basic rules of how to shoot apply. All I've been doing is the daily games. I like it.

Excellent graphics and fairly good playability. However, as noted by several others, the speed control can have a hair trigger and make a shot without intending to. Also, the speed/power is inconsistent. A shot taken with the same setting can have greatly different results. Also, I'm caught in an endless game with no apparent goal or way out. I'm up in the 230 levels and can only keep going up a level at a time. Finally, without any help or documentation, the user is left to guess at certain objects, such as the hand and different cues. All in all, a decent game that needs just a bit of refinement to make it an excellent one.

Intrusive and sound-based advertisements after every single pool table (including the intro missions) makes for a terrible experience. Game wise, I was liking it. I would have recommended it. Different table designs provided variety and a different kind of challenge. The game is very intuitive and the intro missions provide the player the necessary information on how to play the game. I just wish there wasn't an advertisement seemingly every 10 seconds.
