Miniclip 8 Ball Pool – The Best Pool Game For Android
A while back I wrote about World Championship Snooker for Android. It’s a great game for any snooker fan, but it’s a little too realistic and it isn’t free. So what if you want a fun, quick to pick up pool game that’s also free? Well, enter Miniclip’s 8 Ball Pool.
I’ve been meaning to write about this app for quite some time as it is a really simple, yet brilliant game. Not only can you play “normal” games across the internet with other people, you can also play tournaments. The whole game is based around coins which are the in game currency which you can use as an ever increasing stake on your matches.
As you build up more and more coins you can also trade these in for customised cues and tables. Although, the tables only currently work on the desktop version of the game. As well as this you can also buy perks like increased power, longer guide lines, and increased spin.
As you progress in the game you gain XP points and your rank increases until you reach the dizzy heights ofÂ Grand MasterÂ at level 100.Â You can also check the stats for each person you are playing against from within the game, as you can see from my stats below, with nearly 1500 games under my belt, and 63% wins, I’m not too shabby at this game (practice makes perfect).
8 Ball Pool is a game, it’s not a simulator, so therefore the physics within the game isn’t really true to life. However, once you get used to them you can pull off some pretty brilliant shots that are a lot of fun. At first I found the inaccurate physics to be pretty frustrating, but now that I am used to the game I have to say that I really do love it and I play it most days.
Phone, Tablet, Computer
Obviously 8 Ball Pool has a free Android app that you can get from the Google Play Store, but you can also play it on your laptop/PC from inside your browser using the Miniclip website. If you already have an account from the mobile app then you can sign in to the website and all of your stats etc will be synced.
Overall 8 Ball Pool is a simple, well made game that has a lot of features to keep you entertained for a very long time, and I have to say that I’m pretty addicted to this game. So, if you decide to download 8 Ball Pool and we cross paths, I wish you luck!
