Play 8-Ball pool against a friend or against the computer: Doyu 8-Ball is a slick and easy-to-play pool game for virtual billiard enthusiasts, and anyone who enjoys online table sports games requiring good judgement and skill.
Reasons to play this classic American 8-ball pool simulation game: Many virtual pool and snooker games have a clunky, difficult mouse control cue mechanism for shooting – but not Doyu 8-Ball! This is a very smooth and easy-to-play mouse clicking activity which allows good hand-eye coordination, observation and prediction skills, and use of savvy cue spin to come to the fore. Enjoy this game in single player or two player mode.
Strategy to win: The key here is good strategy and deft / steady mouse control. Just like 8-ball pool in real life, you must use canny attacking and defensive strategies to defeat your opponent. Spectacularly potting balls is all well and good – but you must also try to make sure you have good table position for your subsequent shot. Make it difficult for your opponent by putting their balls in awkward positions, and utilizing ‘safety play’ to your advantage.
