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.

The show began with a quiet voice whispering to...
Each year, smartphone makers attempt to one-up each other in features and specs, but time and again these improvements feel incremental rather than revolutionary. Samsung hopes to break this trend with a new hardware and software design philosophy, and press details of the new-and-improved cameras shared by the S6 and S6 Edge show that they are off to a great start. Once you get past the curved displays and wraparound Gorilla Glass 4, the most striking feature on these slabs is the...
