Fans of traditional billiards will certainly be impressed with what Pool Cueshot has to offer.
There is indeed a science to billiards as much an instinct and a bit of luck are required. Pool Cueshot seems to have captured all of these elements within a single platform. Utilising a three-dimensional approach, the player will be able to perfect his or her skills while simultaneously enjoying a stunning background and realistic physics. However, we should note that this game is not as intricate as others on the market. It is therefore more suited for those who are just starting out as opposed to seasoned gamers.
The Addition of Variable Geometry
All technicalities aside, the concept of variable geometry signifies that the balls will move in a much more realistic fashion than in similar platforms. The player can expect the movements to mimic how they would appear on a physical table. The benefit here is that an added level of realism can be enjoyed. The downside is that those unfamiliar with the game could find it frustratingly difficult at first. However, honing one's skills is one of the primary intentions of Pool Cueshot.
Pool Cueshot relies upon three-dimensional technology. Therefore, the performance of this game will rely heavily upon the processing power and the video chip of the computer in question. Older operating systems may have some difficulty providing the smooth movements which define this platform. There are still multiple different customisation options available that the player can adjust to enhance the overall performance.
This game can be played against the computer or multiple players. It is worth mentioning here that this is not an online platform. Only other players that are connected to an offline computer will be able to participate. While this may limit the ability to challenge random participants, this aspect is excellent for those who enjoy a match between friends and family.
Pool Cueshot is compatible with Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP. It is recommended that the Direct X 9.0 video codec be employed to ensure smooth graphical interfacing.
Although some may consider Pool Cueshot a "no-frills" option in comparison to other games, there is still a great deal of fun to be had. What are some of the benefits and drawbacks?
- Accurate physical geometry
- Three-dimensional realism
- May be sluggish for those with less memory
