Billiards Club is a pool simulation game that has surprisingly realistic visual and sound effects. It is a free game that features a total of 12 billiard games, namely Pyramid (Russian, Moscow, and American), Carambole (Straight and single), Snooker, and Pool (3-ball, 8-ball with order, and 8-ball), which you can play in three difficulty levels. You can compete against your computer, another human player at the same computer, or with other players through the network.
The pool room recreates a sort of bar with very nice details, where you can move around to find the best possible view. The table and cue, as well as the balls, are beautifully rendered, recreating the real game elements. Precise, subtle movements and strikes, on the other hand, are possible thanks to the impressive game physics engine.
You control the position of the cue and select the strike strength with mouse movement and shoot with the right click. Strength is reached by dragging the mouse backwards while holding the left mouse button. To get the best angle, you can smoothly control the camera by moving the mouse in the desired direction, and zoom in/out with the mouse wheel.
In the options, you can adjust the music and sound volume, and other aspects like the screen resolution and graphics quality. Additionally, the program integrates an MP3 player that you can use to listen to your favorite tracks while practicing your billiards skills.
