8 Ball Pool: Get It Rolling! Review

Review Standarts
Our main goal is to provide full and useful app reviews. Our authors strictly follow the rules: minimum 15 hours of the real app usage experience or gameplay, test on main Android and iOS versions, test on phones and tablets.

Pool games are obviously among the most popular videogames since the industry rise. The reason is obvious: though balls movement seems chaotic, in a perfect world we could have calculated them all within Newton’s physical conception. So it was easy for digital modelling and required no extreme hardware, especially in 2D mode.

The situation became more complicated as it came to the graphics along with the engine. Pool games are still popular, there’s always something new, but the difference affects graphics and atmosphere rather than game physics.

Miniclip’s 8 Ball Pool game is one of the most popular takes on billiard games for Android or iOS. But if you use any other platform, that’s OK, as the game is also available as a Facebook app from any actual browser. So it’s hard to estimate the real popularity of the game, considering that many users have downloaded 8 Pool APK from third-party sources.

Graphics 8/10

The game icon may deceive you; it’s not as 3D as it pictures, in fact, it’s not 3D at all. The view of the table is quite plain, you see it down before you.

Though the developers have given up on 3D, the graphics are quite a good simulation. The balls roll and show their sides and numbers, the sounds are quite realistic, the backgrounds are stylish and fashionable, like you’re in a real pool hall.

The game field is organized logically. In the top of the screen you see your balls by numbers, the ones in the pockets and the ones you are yet to lay. The chat, your and your opponent’s profiles and system messages are also viewable there.

It’s the place to say that the game is greatly localized into most popular languages. And if you’d like to play in any other language, you can just switch it in Settings.

Gameplay 10/10

As the online game requires constant connection and authorization, first you have to log in via Facebook, Google+ or Miniclip account. You can play as a guest, but then you get no access to numerous bonuses.
When you’re in, you can select between four modes: playing 1 on 1, tournament mode, Mini Games or playing with your friends. At the beginning only the first option is available, but, as you advance, other sections also open out for you.

At the first start the game offers you a brief training course. It only contains instructions on how to aim and how to strike. If you have ever played any pool game, you already know it: drag the cue and preview the ball track before you hit it. The power of your shot is controlled by power bar in the left part of the screen (in Settings you can move it to the right).

The 8 Ball pool rules apply here in full. After the first ball in a pocket it’s defined whether you play stripes or solids. You have to put all your balls into the pockets before your opponent does his, and then crown your success with the black 8-ball. Time for each strike is limited, though the limit depends on your cue.
Each 1 on 1 game requires a bet. Select the place with suitable bets (London pub is 50 coins, Sidney Marina bar is 100, Moscow Winter Club is 500, Tokyo Warrior Hall is 2500, and so up to 15 million bet in Mumbai and 25 million in Berlin). The winner gets it all.

So it is for tournaments, with other virtual halls in Barcelona and other cities. The bets grow as well here. You start a tournament at the quarter-final and then (if lucky enough) advance to the final. The second prize winner gets his/her bet back, so there’s a reason to reach the final at least.

When you're playing a tournament, you even get a feedback from players you have to await, so you know approximately how soon they are in. And if your real or potential opponent goes offline, you win automatically.

Of course, you can but your coins and banknotes for real money. That’s why Miniclip doesn’t ban 8 Ball Pool free download from third-party sites; you still have to connect to its servers for accessing your account.
Another way to spend your virtual (and maybe real) money is equipment. There are multiple cues with different parameters (force, aim, spin and time, they also look different), coins and banknotes, and also mini games and scratchers as a built-in lottery.

Mini games (offering you prizes in virtual coins) make you feel like you’re in a large entertainment center with a casino, and pool is just one of the many pleasures available here. They also allow you to earn some coins (in case you have run out of them).

Controls 8/10

Though the instructions in the beginning are clear, it seems hard to apply your knowledge when playing on a small phone screen.

But lucky tablet owners may enjoy this game fully. There’s enough space to aim, to position your cue and to make a good shot. The pleasure to play 8 Ball Pool grows along with the screen size.

Whatever cue you have bought, you can adjust its sensitivity in Settings. There are also options like “Tap to Aim”, sound and vibration controls.

Replay Value 10/10

This app has preserved this feature of real life pool: if you like it, it never bores you. The more powerful you get, the larger bets you can afford and the stronger opponents are there for you. The replay value of this game seems almost unlimited.

The replayability is upped by constant social elements. You can invite your Facebook or Google+ friends to join you, or share your success in Twitter or other social media. There’s always more coins to win and more opponents to defeat. So replay value of the game is almost absolute, unless you get bored by its graphics.

The Bottom Line

Though there are many free 8 Ball pool games nowadays, Miniclip seems to offer one of the best ones. Sacrificing graphical splendor, it brings out a well-balanced, attracting and realistic game with a lot of bonuses around the main course.
