Game Play

You aim your shots by moving a dot clockwise and counterclockwise around the bumper edge of the table. Your shot speed cycles through three levels, and you choose one by hitting the action button at the correct time. Missing three shots in a row results in losing a player. The scoring is odd, giving you the number on the ball times a multiplier on the pocket, times ten. Multipliers change for each shot.

Billiards The KLOV/IAM 5 Point User Score: 0.00 (0 votes)
