8 Ball Pool GAMEPLAY AND REVIEW
At the start, you can either play as a Facebook User, a guest member or a member of Miniclip. To play as a guest, you are not required to either have a username or be registered. When you’ve already been listed and allowed to play, you can make a choice of either to play against a random user or your friends. However, the game has an option to play in a tournament which is yet to be made available. 8 Ball Pool has got a total of 5 levels. These are Las Vegas, Moscow, London, Tokyo and Sydney. Every player who wants to play a given round needs to first pay using an in-game currency as an entry fee. As the levels progressively go higher, the fees charged also increase. When you win a game, you’re paid back two times the amount that you paid as entry fees. Essentially, you get your fees paid back plus those of the opponent. On the other hand, when you lose the game, you’ll lose coins as well though you will not drop to less than zero. Once the cue ball breaks the rack, the pool stick’s angle is simply adjusted with a finger. You’ll then see two lines. One will be showing the direction that would be taken by the cue ball while the other indicated the path of the ball is aimed at. After sufficiently adjusting your aim, you then pull back the power meter. This is what will determine how strong your shot will be. Each and every player is given a duration of 30 seconds within which they need to prepare and take their shot. If you fail to complete within this period, your opponent is awarded a ball in hand.
