Introduction to 8 Ball Pool
For all those who love to while away their time away pocketing a few balls this is the game for you! With responsive and accurate game physics and a clean, polished design 8 Ball Pool by Miniclip.com is great fun for experienced pool sharks and novices alike!
Features of 8 Ball Pool
Above the overall sharp and definitive design is the actual gameplay itself. Playing online in either head-to-head modes with friends or randomly selected matches with people all over the world, players can compete for points and in-game currency which allows for levelling up and unlocking new items and stages. Furthermore, there is the tournament mode which allows for even greater prizes.
Gameplay of 8 Ball Pool
With levels staged at international locations such as London, Sydney, Moscow, Tokyo, and Las Vegas, upon gameplay two lines show the trajectory of the cue ball and the ball at which you are aiming for. Once set up, drawing on the power meter determines the strength of the strike. Players have a 30 second time limit to prepare and execute their shot. If players exceed the allotted time then not only is their turn forfeited yet the opponent is rewarded by being able to move the cue ball to wherever they like! As in real life pool, to win players need to sink / pot all of their solid or stripped balls and then finish with the infamous eight ball (of which standard foul rules apply!)
With thousands of players online at any given time there is always the chance to test your skill and garner more experience points and in-game currency to level up! Encouraging further playful relations between players is the ability to share some stock responses and remarks to either compliment or jib opponents. To maintain interest and fuel the fever to play more and more, players can bet (with in-game currency) on the outcome of each match to earn more coins which enable you to enter higher stakes matches or to invest in custom cues and tables etc.
