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.

I like the concept, and it plays well. It’s much more enjoyable than I expected.



Shockingly more fun than it looks, because it looks terrible. The graphics look like something you'd see in 1993, but the mechanics work well enough. I don't understand why it looks so unforgivably awful, but this is a decent way to burn five minutes.

Give it a play.

Thanks for your feedback! I think there are two main reasons for bad graphics quality:
1) We have no artist in our team at the moment (ok, bad excuse, we definitely should have one)
2) Game was originally designed for 800x600px size (for mochimedia), but Newgrounds did not support such a size. So we had to shrink it to 640x480px and lost some details.

Let's see if we can make an updated version with newgrounds compatible size. Also, it would be a really good idea from us to get an artist to join our devel team... :)


creative game, it s cool, and addictive!
also the game idea, and general gameplay is very original, and quite easy-to-play.
good game, man! congrats...
keep it up, and do more stuff like this!

Thanks for your encouraging words! We have started our game development activities about half an year ago, and this is the very first game that we dared to upload to newgrounds.

New projects are under work, so be tuned! :)
