Play pool against the computer.

This is a game where you play a simple game of pool against the computer. Your goal is to clear away the pool balls so that you can be the winner. The game is rather simple, and it does not require a lot of space on your hard drive if you download it. Scores can be posted to social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.

The game begins when you break the colored balls. It is a little difficult to figure out how to turn the cue stick as you use the mouse to move it when you want to hit. Once you get the stick lined up with the cue ball in the position where you want to hit, you will click on the strike button located in the lower right corner. This will activate the cue stick so that you break the balls or when it is your turn. If you sink a ball, it will determine whether you are colors or stripes. If you do not sink a ball, the computer will take a turn. The computer can be hard to beat, so you need a little skill in where to position the cue ball if you want to have a decent chance at winning. If the computer sinks a ball, you will be the opposite of what sinks. For example, if the computer sinks a striped ball, then you will be solids. The game continues like a regular pool game until all of the balls are cleared. The power of the hit can be adjusted if you do not want to hit with a full force.

Pros

  • Game to pass the time

Cons
