Angle Ball

An old idea with a fresh twist. Well, admit it. Very few of the games released today are purely rehashes of old favs. Everyone likes pool. Let's give the table 6 sides instead of 4. And there you have it, a completely original concept.

Angle Ball has 6 sides, 8 balls and 6 pockets. The idea of the game it to pot the balls in any order, potting the black last. You must position a cursor over the ball of your choice and in whatever direction. Then you must select spin and pull your cue back to as far from the ball as you want to signify power of the shot.

This game is great and its great fun.

Overall Summary

The most playable simulation in this field, but like most falls on being a little monotonous.
