3D Pool Ball is one of the offerings of the developer CanadaDroid. 3D Pool Ball separates itself from the mainstream pool games with its 3D view option. Most of the pool games available on mobile offer a standard 2D view for playing the shots. The 3D Pool Game takes it to another level by introducing a 3D view which puts an entirely new spin on the pool game for mobile. With different gaming modes, fine controls and nice graphics, 3D Pool Ball is one of the better options available for pool lovers.
When you download the app and start it, it offers a great tutorial where you learn how to play the shots in 3D. Once the simple controls are explained, you are setup with an online game of 9-ball pool. Afterwards, you take control of your destiny and can choose from a wide range of options. The simple layout of the homepage makes it easy to choose from the wide range of gaming options available.
The game offers you the chance to play one-off 8-ball and 9-ball pool games online or offline. Unfortunately, there is no feature through which you can play against a friend as the choice for your online opponent is made randomly. This is deeply frustrating as the game is extremely well-rounded otherwise. There are defined levels and you would only be matched with a player on the same level. You can also take part in 8-ball online tournaments where you can play for a bigger share of coins.
In the offline option, you can play against the AI or against a local opponent on your own mobile. The local opponent option is the closest you can get to playing 3D pool game with your friend. There are no points on winning against a local opponent though your achievements are recorded if you play against AI.
The gameplay is interesting and offers a lot of options. Apart from the 3D and 2D view on offer when playing your shots, you also get interesting options to maneuver your strokes. You can choose where to strike the cue ball while you can also change the angle at which you hit the ball. You can also change your cue stick and improve the accuracy of shots. However, you would have to use your coins in order to purchase a better cue stick.
The 3D Pool Game has a great rewards system. The rewards are essential as this is the only way you can keep playing the game and keep increasing your experience and stature within the game. It assigns a list of daily tasks and on completion of each of these tasks; you can claim a good reward. The app also has a slot system where you can try your luck with a number of rewards available.
The 3D Pool Ball has a fine achievements section as well and it records each and every record you make in that list. You can match your achievements with the best in the game as well with the leader board compiled by the game.
