Play pool against computer players in tournaments to become rank #1. American 8-Ball Pool is on of the best free pool games with computer players.

Play Pool Challenges, Time Attacks and Single Matches against your friends to improve your pool skills.

Win over 50 trophies for top score, big runs of balls and special shots.

This game has excellent physics - with spin control - and simple controls. The computer players are quick thinking and range from easy to very hard - so you'll be able to find the perfect match for you.

The tournaments are 8-Ball Pool (with customisable rules in the settings) and Straight Pool against 15 computer players with a ranking system. You have to win both types of cups to become the rank number 1.

Aim with the mouse. Hold down the left mouse button and move downwards to set the power. Use the scale that appears on the left to judge the shot strength.

Cancel shots by setting the power to zero - as close to the cue ball as possible,

Add spin to the cue ball by pressing the ARROWs or WASD keys.

I hope you enjoy my pool game - cheers \(^_^)/

The computer is so abnormal

It's been done...

Very little to tell between the games "Pub Snooker"; "English Pub Pool"; "American 8 Ball Pool" and this title, to be honest. This leaves me with the question: Why not just have them all together? That way, you could save up for the 1,000 pints medal on one game, while being able to play all forms of the game, which to me would be much better, as it would be less boring.

The gameplay is average at best - the physics doesn't work, with the cushions even more unforgiving than those at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield. In addition to this, the angles generated when balls make contact can seem a little odd, as the white ball seems to fly true into the pocket, from the most bizarre of angles.

All in all, this is a great series of games, but I'd have preferred to see the one game, with medals combined across all of the baize based games. Perhaps you could add Billards, as well. That's a very different game, that takes a lot to master, while only being based around three balls on a snooker table at the same time.

i really enjoy this game, the only thing i ask for you to do is fix the computer gameplay. just played a game where they got 8 shots in a row -.- and thats on the very beginner level

The biggest blunder I see here is that you didn't explain the up and down action of the mouse to control your shot power (which happens to make this game shine above the rest of the shitty billiards games that show up here on newgrounds). Online PvP play should be your next goal.

Excellent pool game. Too bad I'm not very good at pool!
