Total Pool Free Brings a No-Nonsense Billiards Experience

For those gaming aficionados out there who enjoy the occasional round of virtual Billiards, you’d notice that there hasn’t been too many really great billiards games out there since the one from Candystand 10 years ago. Some have come close, but most overshoot the simplistic nature of billiards and just try to make it more than it really is or really should be.

Enter Total Pool, a game recently released for Android by XDA Forum Member The Friendly Monster that focuses more on the graphics and physics of the game than ridiculous showboat features. No exploding 8-balls, no silly themes, and no monster struck announcer-style voice overs. Just pool, the way it should be, with balls on a table.

That, of course, does not imply that the game has no features. It certainly does. With pool games types from 8-ball to 10-ball to Straight Pool and several other modes, mixed in with 80 challenges and 30 sets of balls and tables to eventually unlock, the game offers more than most billiards games on Android while still keeping to the clean, polished look and feel of the game. Additional features include:

- Realistic ball physics
– Intuitive touch controls; apply spin and swerve with ease
– True-to-life American and British style tables

The game hasn’t been out for very long, but customer reviews are very positive and, best of all, it’s free so there’s really no reason not to try it out. The only negatives to the game is that there is no player vs CPU mode or network play as of now.

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
