#MidnightPool #Gameloft #GamesSky
This entry in the Midnight series focuses on pool. You can either play 8-Ball US, 8-Ball UK or 9-Ball. There are tournaments for cash, with a bet before and a trick challenge after each match, versus matches for up to two players, challenges, and quick games against an AI-controlled opponent.
For each shot, you have to rotate the cue into the right direction. Short lines show the general direction the balls will be moving. You then determine the power by timely pressing a key. Advanced controls let you perform jump shots, massé shots or add effect by repositioning the tip of the cue in relation to the ball. The colour of the cue can be selected at random, and upon progressing in the tournament, you unlock new characters.
The game’s theme music is an electronic version of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Sweet Home Alabama.
