JeremyBilliard Blitz Pool SkoolFancy yourself a pool shark? Do you like wearing snazzy vests, love the feel of blue cue chalk on your hands, and, if someone were to take a peek at your Netflix queue, would they find that you've watched The Color of Money about a million times? No? Yeah, well, me neither. But give me the chance to play a sleek little pool simulator like Billiard Blitz Pool Skool by Richard Hoddinott in the comfort of my own home on a lazy afternoon with no one but my cat and the mail carrier to laugh at my ridiculous shots? Oh hell yeah. That blue chalk is probably toxic anyway.

The mechanics of Billiard Blitz Pool Skool are elegantly simple. Just line up your cue stick, watch the white direction indicator, ram up the power bar for more umph, and slide the spin control to your prefered setting for a little extra pizzazz. Oh, it all seems so easy. But, before you start filling out the paperwork to legally change your name to Minnessota Fats, you best brush up on your kiss, kick, and kill shots if you want to rack up some bonus points and make it to the final challenge.

Billiard Blitz Pool Skool keeps it neat, simple, and does exactly what you'd expect. Unless, of course, you expect it to propel you into a full blown career on the professional pool circuit with your own line of merchandise and movie tie-ins. For the rest of us, Billiard Blitz Pool Skool will provide more than enough relaxed fun to satisfy us for the day.

There's a few annoying bugs with the controls. Space doesn't just shoot; it resets the speed to average then shoots. R doesn't reset the spin as it says; it restarts the entire level.

Other than those, pretty fun though - much better physics than most pool games online.

Loved this one, until I "ran out of time".

Gorgeous graphics and excellent physics. Maybe add a "casual" option to eliminate the clock, and I'll come back and play it again.
