Free Billiards Pool Game - Lightning Break

Rating: 6.5/10 - 279 votes

Do you love the action and intensity of pocket billiard sports? If so, get a load of Lightning Break, a fun and fast-paced version that combines some basic snooker rules, pool, and super-fast cue action! Take on 15 awesome challenges where you have to alternately pocket reds and colors – scoring as many points as you can in a race against the clock. While this difficult ball game is based on the break-building skill of snooker, it takes place on an American-style pool table – which adds to the unpredictability and fun! These billiards balls fly around the table!

This ball-potting extravaganza requires a little appreciation of physics and angles; predicting the path of each ball as they ricochet off the sides is vitally important. You need to be totally focused – you always see snooker superstars in deep concentration – and this is no different! Each challenge tests different aspects of your potting ability – you need to pocket those balls quickly, accurately, and skillfully. Ok Potting Shark, that’s your ‘cue’ to show us what you can do!

How to Play: In each of the increasingly difficult challenges, you have a specific objective that must be completed within the time allowed. The game is loosely-based on the rules of snooker – which means that you must start each game by potting a Red Ball. After you pot the lone Red Ball (which automatically re-appears near the center of the table each time you pot it), you must pot one of the other Color Balls next. In early levels, your task is simply to pot 1 Red Ball, then 1 Color Ball, etc. As you progress through the levels, more difficult break-building challenges are set, such as making a ‘Break’ of 30 points.

A ‘Break’ is basically the amount of points you have scored through alternately potting Reds and Colors. Each Ball has a Points Value: Red = 1; Yellow = 2; Green = 3; Brown = 4; Blue = 5; Pink = 6; and Black = 7. The trick is to try and pot high-value Colors after each Red to keep your score ticking over. The rules of Lightning Break are slightly different from snooker in that you don’t have to hit the exact ball first that you’re trying to pot. You can hit any of the balls in order to line up the ball you want to pot; It’s the pot and color sequence that counts. However, if you pot the wrong ball (like a Color when you’re supposed to pot a Red), you get deducted 4 seconds from your overall time. Likewise, if you accidentally pot the Cue Ball (White) or miscue for an air shot, you lose 4 seconds from the time (indicated in the center of the table area).

Use your computer mouse or touchpad to take a shot. Aim your mouse cursor where you want the white ball to go. Press and hold down the Left mouse button, and release the Click when you have the desired power. The Power Bar is in the top left corner of the game screen. Your ‘Break’ score is indicated in the bottom right corner. If you complete the task before time runs out, you progress to the next level. If you fail, you replay that level. Happy potting!
