I've been playing this game for a couple of years now and have really, really, liked it. Until this week. Some ppl just can't leave well enough alone. The commercial content and coin collecting aspect of it had been tolerable until the latest changes. If you want to play slot machines, and trash talk with friends, then maybe you will get some enjoyment out of it. But for the pool purist, or someone interested in actually playing an accurate computer sim of the game, keep looking. This game is now catered to the kids... A pool stick that you have to continually pay credits to recharge? Ridiculous. So sad to see the end of my favorite ipad game... Hey guys at Miniclip, how about reinvesting in making the game actually better? Instead you're just constantly inventing different ways to get another few dollars out of everyone. Also, it's a little fishy how out of my thousands of daily spins, I seem to land on $100 about 80% of the time... and, I don't EVER recall winning anything other than a thousand bucks or so on a "Scratcher." I wouldn't play these at all if I weren't forced to, so if you're going to force ppl to play, you could at least make it fair. Oh, and enough with the bazillion different pool sticks! Geeeez!
I understand the concept of having people constantly play this game. Send your coins to recharge your cues, that way people would keep playing. I get that, but at the same time, what if you would happen to lose all your coins in a game and all your cues are low on battery. I feel as if they should at least charge over night or to start to charge if you haven’t played the game in a couple of hours. Because having to constantly pay 567, 715 coins or higher to use your favorite cue starts to add up. Could you possibly make the battery for the cue 100? Or when you update the cue the battery life updates as well? Just a thought. Also another concern I have, when I go to the “get more coins” section I would click on something to do a survey, basically a complete an action type of thing but it seems to be a never ending cycle of doing random things, asking questions but I pretty much never get any coins out of it. It says “complete an action” not complete actions. And it shouldn’t be where every single thing ask for your information. This is how people get their information stolen, I don’t feel as if most of these sites are safe. I love the game don’t get me wrong, out of all the apps I’ve ever had this is the only one I never gotten bored with. I’ve played for a couple of years now, off and on. Hopefully you guys will take my review in consideration to make the game that much better.
So I’m not one to normally complain however this app has been messing up lately. I’ve lost 20k total while playing this game. I recently unlocked Los Vegas and I’ve play two different people. In the first game, I would say it was fair up until they tapped their ball with the cue ball. I assumed that I would get the ball in hand since it didn’t touch any of the rails. I was wrong, I did not. However when I did the same thing they did, right after them (because my hand slipped and my phone almost fell out of my hand) the ball was in their hand now which was weird because we just did the same exact thing and I was the one who got penalized for it. It wouldn’t be that big of a deal if there were more balls to be hit but both the striped and the solids were almost gone. We both had 1 or 2 balls left. I went back into the app a little bit later, and I played Las Vegas again. This time my opponent broke. They had a straight Ballin and they continue to hit almost all their balls until they had about two left I believe. When it was my turn, I went to hit the ball and I tapped it but unfortunately I did not aim well enough and it hit the wall instead of the going into the hole. So my opponent had the ball in their hand. My opponent ended up doing the same and I did not receive the same advantage. I normally wouldn’t care if the game was fair but it wasn’t and 20k just down the drain.
I like the different game goals (rings) and the look of different tables and options it gives, but other than that I’m not impressed. One problem is it doesn’t match you with players in your “ranking or experience”. A beginner may end up with an opponent that has been classified as a pro or better, depending on how long they’ve been playing. Also too many interruptions when playing with challenger banners or wanting you to challenge your FB friends. The cue stick charges don’t last through a game if you have a bad break then you may have to recharge more than once for consistent shots and that’s in addition to placing a bet. The balls sometimes can hang half over a pocket to drop then it jolts back towards the table, but the cue can too often roll with ease for a scratch. It’s just a bit fishy when you AND your opponents ball should have dropped but jolts back from the hole. There are a few more minor issues that are annoying like not being able to type your own text for chat. I’d rather it was emojis than some of the stupid pretext messages and then you have to buy more if you want to add some. Shows a lot of greed. Plus it’s anybody’s guess as to who is going to break. If you play 5 games in a row with a different player each game you may not get to break on any of those even if you lost previously. All of this is even after purchasing the app. 🙄
Would of given this five stars, but sometimes I get booted from a match and lose my coins, even if I'm winning or I get booted then it brings me back, I missed my turn and the other player has ball in hand! Really?!? Sometimes in the very beginning of the game when you get the spin to win I will start spinning and it will automatically click into update mode and then I won’t win whatever the spin table lands on, it won’t even show me what it landed on. It just goes right into the game and I lose that turn. Then, I’m a level 50 and consistently the game puts me up against a level 120+!! are you +*^%#*# serious?! Needless to say yesterday I had over 1 million coins now I’m down to not even half that. You should have the option to see who you’re up against and you should have the option to back out of that match before the match starts and before your coins are dropped into the pot.! I mean think about it, when you go to a real pool hall in real life you get to see the person or persons play before you play them and then if they ask you to play them you can decide whether you want to or not before the match starts or before you put up any money. I’m just saying give us a choice on whether we want to play against that guy or girl that is 70+ levels ahead of us!
