Explopool, a fun and entertaining game with billiards balls and explosives. Challenging, but easy to play game, that requires both skill and some luck.

Your target is to clear pool table and get all balls to the pockets by using explosives. A bomb is placed and set with a left mouse button. Besides normal pockets, there are special pockets marked with "?". If ball hits that, a special feature is activated. Most of them will help you clearing the table.

It seemed like it was a really fun game at first, but then I noticed you kept running out of bombs. Well, it will still motivate me to work harder! I actually have in fact played pool in real life and I wasn't too bad at it. I like the idea of using bombs. The graphics probably could be better. It reminds me of that Billiards game where the balls themselves are bombs.

I think this was actually more enjoyable than that. For one, I'm better at it. It's hard to find a game with medals that I hadn't played on the Top 50. Well, you learn something new every day. The sounds were quite good.

This game is extremely addicting, however I have to be a Picky Pete and point out one major flaw:

If you ever use the very last bomb and can't manage to get the last balls in, the game will start fading to black even if you manage to gain extras with the last explosion. I think the game should wait to see if you gain any extra bombs before it wraps up, but it never seems to do that.

Thanks for your feedback (and bug report)! :)

I believe your finding on "last ball flaw" is correct, even though I did not manage to get it visible in my quick playtests today. However, I found a block of code that probably causes such behavior in certain conditions. I will probably fix when I am preparing next build of Exploball.

It's a cool game. Figuring the multiple angles gets complicated .. at first you think oh it's just kind of random but no! Yeah it might look a little better but the game play is great.. it's a time slayer
