||CueClub v1.42 Description:|
is a comprehensive and highly playable pool and snooker simulation. Preferring an overhead view of the table, CueClub allows you to play the entire game using only the mouse, making the game instantly playable and highly addictive. With a choice of table designs and a healthy selection of games, there's plenty to keep you occupied. Also thrown in is a handy practice mode, which is an excellent environment to test out the stunningly accurate physics, and hone your ball control skills. Side, top, backspin and swerve can all be applied to great effect, enabling you to pull off some incredible shots. You can even get rid of the cue altogether and just hurl the balls around with the mouse!
What makes CueClub really unique though, is its innovative Virtual Chat mode. This allows you to hook up with other players from a virtual chat room (which is generated by the computer), and chat with them just like you do in a real Internet chat room. Each member logs who they've played against and chatted to, forming a relationship in the process. These relationships determine the pecking order, who gets to play who, while progress is made by beating opponents to improve your reputation. By beefing up your rank, you eventually get to play the big boss.
There are a plethora of pool games to choose from, including: US 8 Ball, UK 8 Ball, 9 Ball, Snooker, Speed Ball, and Killer. Full customization lets you change the table, cues, ball sets, and even the rules. An in-game reference manual and tips help you on how to improve your game. Photo-realistic graphics give the balls reflections and real shadows and accurate real-world physics model collision, swerve and spin to full effect. From the smack of the cue to the subtle rumble of balls rolling inside the table, CueClub captures the pub atmosphere of pool like no other game in the genre.
