See here on Killer and here for WC Pool. General consensus is VP No.1, followed by WCP and then Killer.

Agreed on all counts. WCP 09 is the only real contender to VP right now. For the price, gameplay, shooting mechanics, ball physics, opponent AI, graphics, and developer dedication to updates - VP is the clear winner.

I have been discussing VP with the developer. Of course details can't be discussed here, certainly not by me. Suffice to say, VP is the best already, and future updates will completely blow the rest out of the water (or should I say 'pool' hehe).
Stick with VP

WPC is a serious threat to VP if they get rid of the Championship bug and add some more depth. Killer doesn't play nearly as well as VP or WPC imho.

Going good.. I will be requesting beta testers for the online version within the next day or two. The goal is to get a 1000 or more people playing so that we can evaluate the server load. Since the adhoc distribution for the iPhone is limited, the only way we can do this is with a PC version. Thus you will need a Windows PC to test. I'll post more details in the forum when we are ready.
