Description

The analog joystick controls the position of the cue ball and you move the cue ball around ramming into the other balls trying to get them to drop into the pockets. It is a timed game so the quicker you can sink those balls the better. Don't get the cue ball to close to the pockets or you'll scratch and loose your turn.
