iPhone Pool Game Updated – Now Does Two Player

iPhone Pool game

Pool – the billiards game for iPhone – has been updated to Version 2.0 today.  It has added quite a few major new features, and has also now switched to a limited free version, full version only available via donation / activation model.

I’ve only tried the new version out for a few minutes (though I’ll get to know it real well tonight I’m sure) – so far the biggest new features are:

  • There’s now a two-player option and play vs computer option
  • There are Plus and Minus buttons at the top of the table that make it easier to fine-tune the angle when lining up your shot
  • More options to choose from
  • You can now go from with a game to the settings and main menu without having to exit out of the game itself

The free version of the game is now limited as follows:

  • Allowed only 7 games a day (Two-player and vs. Computer modes)
  • Save/Load option is disablediPhone billiards game
  • Match length is fixed to 1.

And the full set of features now includes:

  • Single-player mode
  • Two-player mode
  • vs. Computer mode
  • 8-Ball and 9-Ball games
  • Autosave game on exit
  • Easy cue direction and ball speed adjustment
  • Two ball sizes (16 and 18 pixels)
  • Fully customizable view and behavior 

I’m not sure as yet on how much of a donation you need to make in order to have the game activated and all features made available.  I’ve done a $1.00 donation just a while ago, and it looks as if that will get me activated – but I’ll update this later to confirm one way or the other.

Pool Version 2.0 is out on Installer now.  If you get a chance to try it out, let us know what you think of the new features and the new limited / paid model …

UPDATE: My $1.00 contribution did get me an activation for the full product.  I’m also happy to report I got a very fast and helpful response when there was an issue with my Paypal confirmation email address (my fault, not the developer’s).  Have also had a chance to play a couple games in ‘Vs. Computer’ mode tonight and have been enjoying it mucho 🙂
