Killer Pool update

Hi everyone,

Morgan from Sauce Digital here. We have updated Killer Pool with the most popular requests. It should filter through onto the store in the next 24hrs, it includes:

Player names auto-saved.
"Player X at table" message removed, so no need to click "ok" every time.
Table design options: logo, skull or none.
Render style options: original or realistic.
Top down view option.
Auto ball select.
Accelerometer sensitivity reduced, for play with device laid flat.

Thanks for all the feedback on the game, keep the suggestions coming and we will try and get them into the next version.

Cheers

Morgan

We are thinking about it, but would probably be a different App.

Thanks Morgan

update sounds great

Any chance of the 'Open table' rule after foul in UK rules? - so any ball is potable after opponent's foul and carrying two shots - seems only way game is played in London

Snooker would be great - but a separate app is fair enough - I'd def' buy it at a similar price to KP - snooker is very big in China too btw ;->

cheers

Edit: Update is live here in UK 10:00 GMT - downloading now - feedback to follow ...

quite possibly, we are thinking about rules customisation and it could go in there.

Update 1st impressions

overall seems a nice solid update

only played on 'Black Ball' (UK rules) and there's a bit less OK's to tap - but still a few - for foul shots and also when it's the carry over 2nd shot (would prefer if they just 'popped up' as notice and didn't need tapping

the realistic render option is easier on the eye - certainly for night play

top down view is useful (though I still mostly zoom out a lot)

and yes - I opted for non logo table for less distraction

all in all it's a tidy improvement - cheers
