Pool Jam is a skill and strategy-based pocket billiards (pool) game where you have to pot as many balls as you can in a 3 minute time limit. This straight-forward table sports game has all the elements of classic 9-ball pool action. Score as many points as you can by pocketing the 9 colored balls with the cue-ball (white ball). Perform cool trick shots, and bank the balls in off the cushions (sides).
Good hand-eye coordination and a little understanding of the motion and geometry involved in your shots will help here. You’ll have to calculate the correct angles from which to shoot the cue-ball to succeed. Your decision making will be tested, as you have to strategically choose the right shot depending on the position of the balls on the table. The clock is ticking, so try and pocket as many balls as you can under pressure to get that high score! Ready Pool Wizard? Pick up your cue and let’s get potting!
How to Play: Control your pool cue using your computer mouse. Move the mouse around to aim (you can see your aiming line coming out of the end of your cue). To hit the cue-ball, Left Click and drag your cue away from it. Your Power Bar at the bottom of the game screen indicates how hard you are going to hit it. Try to pot as many balls as you can before the clock runs down; Keep an eye on it in the top left corner. You score points for every ball you pot. Earn extra points if you pot the balls quickly.
If you pot all of the balls on the table, they re-appear and you can keep going (for Hotshots!) At the end of the three minutes, you can see your final score in the top right corner of the game screen. Keep playing to try and better your score each time! Try to avoid letting the cue-ball into the pockets, as this deducts points from your score. If you accidentally pot the cue-ball, you can re-position it anywhere on the table.
Tip: You don’t have to hit the balls at full power all of the time. Sometimes it’s easier to just flick the balls into the pockets. This also gives you more control over where the cue-ball is going to end up. Plan your shots ahead.
