The description of 8 Ball Pool
8 Ball Pool is an addictive billiards app colorful graphics and a robust online community. Developed by Miniclip, this billiards game lets you play with friends from both the Miniclip and Facebook communities.
You can start playing as a Miniclip member, a Facebook user, or (my favorite) a guest member -- that last requiring no registration or username. Once you're in, you can either play with friends or get matched up one-on-one with random users. 8 Ball Pool consists of five levels, London, Sydney, Moscow, Tokyo, and Las Vegas. To play a round, each player pays the entry fee in in-game currency; the levels have progressively higher fees. If you win the game, you'll win twice the amount you paid -- basically, you win your coins back, plus your opponent's share. If you lose a game, you can lose coins, but you won't drop below zero.
To play after the rack is broken by the cue ball, you simply adjust the angle of your pool stick with your finger. Two lines will then appear, one showing the trajectory of the ball you're aiming for, and the other the trajectory of your cue ball. Once everything is adjusted to your liking, pull back the power meter (initially situated on the left, but you can move it) to determine the strength of your strike. The farther down you pull and release, the harder you'll strike the cue ball.
