Ok on first glance (still playin) this is for those that want to control EVERYTHING. More sim'ish than arcade'ish. Very good quality with a very high polish. Table is slightly on the small side due the plethora of shooting controls that you have at your disposal. You can make the ball dance if you want to. There's a game save option, but if you exit it will auto restart to your game. Your saved game can be loaded when ever you like from the menu. Sounds are realistic, ipod music fades out upon game start The CPU skill can be changed to suite your skill. There are two methods of controls, the standard way I guess using the controls on the side or by the easier "joypad" method which gives you arrows to tap.

I like it and especially like the ability to control everything. Will be a challenge to beat the CPU on 9 ball in a single run. And for $0.99 I wouldn't think twice if your a billiards fan.

The interface for shooting curves is pretty cool, but I wonder if there is any online multiplayer planned for this game.
