8 Ball Pool™ By Miniclip.com
Why it’s cool
8 Ball Pool is a cool because you can play pool with friends and family from around world. You can compete with them in games and tournaments.
Also, if you win the pool match, you win coins to buy new cue sticks and move up to better, more challenging tournaments.
Is it entertaining, educational or a little of both?
8 Ball Pool is both entertaining and educational.
It is educational because you are learning about using angles and force (my mom says that’s “Physics” & “Geometry”!). You can also improve your game by learning from your opponent. If the opponent is better than you, you can pick up new tricks and ideas for winning. If the opponent is not so good, you learn from their mistakes.
The app is entertaining and also slightly addictive. The more you win, the more you want to play again. Sometimes, you can watch a commercial or an ad and get free coins. Also, every day you get a “Free Spin” to earn coins so that you can enter tournaments. I play on my parents’ iPhone and they get daily reminders for me to take my “Free Spin”.
