Update launch date confirmed

To confirm the update now has a confirmed launch date, (yey!) next wednesday 5th November, this is due to a number of bug fixes highlighted from our kind beta testers and a fix for the spectator bug online that has been brought to our attention via the Steam community, where you would play online and be unable to take a shot - this is fixed in this update (or so it seems) but this did cause a few other issues that need vigorous testing.

We would not like to send it live tomorrow before the weekend, when the office is unmanned, we want to be on hand to support the update, should anything need our attention, so I hope you will all join us for a game on Wednesday :)

Those who want to get help beta test over the weekend please do get in touch the more the merrier - we really appreciate all your help.

Thanks again and Happy Halloween

Reviews

“Yes, it’s a pool game, and you could argue that there’s not much more to say beyond that. But pool is a rare sight on the PC, unless it’s of the top-down Flash variety, and this is a bloody good example of the form. ‘Hole in one’, as they say at the Crucible.”
ROCK, PAPER, SHOTGUN

““In fact it could be the shiniest game to ever grace a console. Now as Pool Nation nears its North American debut, Cherry Pop Games shows that this is anything but a port to another console but rather an upgraded version that took everything that made the 360 version great and added even more.”
97/100 – Game Focus

““It’s easy to suggest that Pool Nation is the finest example of virtual pool... but to do CherryPop Games’ work justice it must be said that they have delivered what is in fact one of the best pool videogames ever to grace a console.””
95/100 – Bio Gamer Girl

Ich habe dieses Spiel im Sale gekauft, aus Langeweile und weil ich es früher im RL mal gezockt habe. Es gibt hier und da kleine Bugs aber beim ersten Update (..hoffe das es eins gibt) werden die sicher behoben werden. Die Grafik ist sehr gut, frisch&cool, schöne und abwechslungsreiche Austragungsorte. Skins für Queue (=den "Schläger"^^), für die Kugelsätze und verschiedene Tisch-Bilder sind freischaltbar. Es gibt bald einen Workshop. Multiplayer ist Open&Closed möglich. Der Sound ist Ok. Karten und Erfolge sind dabei. Es ist kein Pool-Simulator sondern eher "Arcade". Die Steuerung im Spiel ist (finde ich) sehr gelungen. Man kann präzise zielen. Singleplayer-"Kampagne" fehlt auch nicht. Dialoge sind gut übersetzt und teilweise lustig. Und das alles für 0,99 Cent. Screenshots dazu wurde hochgeladen. Auch DLC's soll es bald geben. Ich frage mich nur, wenn schon halb Arcade, wieso nicht gleich GANZ Arcade?...

BUY IT!

Mich hat das Spiel Total überzeugt. Man kann im Spiel unglaublich viel einstellen den Winkel, Spinn, Bögenschüsse und noch vieles mehr. Die Tische sehen hervorrangend aus und die Kugeln glänzen im Licht. Vom Preis kann her kann man nicht mäckern. Was sogar noch toll ist später kann man im Game Trickshoots machen. Dazu stehen dann verschiedene Bauteile zu verfügung so das man seine Ideen richtig freien Lauf lassen kann. Zwar ist kein Snooker Tisch da aber das ist nicht wichtig. Dachte am Anfang auch wie schade aber das ganze Game macht ne menge Fun. Multiplayer fähig ist das Game auch so das man mit Freunden ab und zu zocken kann. 100 verschiedene Tische stehen zu Verfügung. Und jeder Tisch hat verschiedenen Aufgaben zu lösen. So wird das Game nicht langweilig. Von der Punkte zahl gebe ich dem Spiel 8/10 Punkte.

Pool Nation ist eine der Besten 3D Billard (Poolbillard) Simulationen, die durch brillante Grafik sowie der Ball Physik auf ganzer Linie überzeugt. Es ist für Anfänger & Profi's gleichermaßen zugeschnitten, in 13 hervorragenden Tutorials wird einem alles beigebracht was man wissen muss. Im Spiel gibt es viele unterschiedlichste Modi wie zb. 3/8 oder 9-Ball, 14 und 1, Top Shot sowie Golf. Ball Trick's wie "Swerve", "Kick/Bank Shot", "Knife Edge" und viele andere sind ebenso möglich.

Nette Pool-Simulation für Zwischendurch mit vielen spielbaren Varianten. Die Optik ist schick, wenn auch vielleicht etwas zu poliert an der ein oder anderen Stelle. Aber das tut dem Spielspaß keinen Abbruch!

Pool Nation ist ein typisches 8-9 Ball Spiel, was auch ein Ausdauermodus beherbergt, in dem man unter angegebener zeit Die Kugel versenken muss!
Es wird mit Ranglisten gespielt die als Ki gesteuerte Spieler agieren, es wird Sieg um Sie gehen, so das man ein fortwährenden Wettkampf mit den Spielern ablieferen muss, was auf die Dauer und Zeit sehr viel Spaß macht. Den je mehr man in der Rangliste aufsteigt werden die Spiele schwerer.

Das Negative in Online Spielen ist; das man bei Xbox Live angemeldet sein muss.

Pool Nation macht ein sehr starken eindruck. Die Pyhsik stimmt, die abwecheslungsreichen Gegner machen das Spiel nicht so langweillig.

Spielspaß: 6 von 10
Steuerung: 8 von 10
Grafik: 8 von 10
Sound: 6 von 10

Ich habe mir das Spiel im Okt. 2013 gekauft und gesehen es soll eine "Box of Tircks" geben !
Ich fragte mich wann, denn 3 monate nach meinem kauf hatte sich nichts getan bis auf ein paar kleinen fix'es !
Jetzt über ein jahr später (Nov. 2014) gibt es entlich die "Box of Tricks" und sie ist echt minimalistisch, es gibt, Ich glaube 8 verschiedene Rampen und Booster, Ich habe mich echt Verar5cht gefühl wo ich das gesehen habe,
Aber ein Blick auf die Shop Seite von Pool Nation hat mir dann Verraten das man sich die anderen Rampen und Booster erst alle kaufen muss (5 DLC's), obwohl der "Box of Tricks Teaser" alle Pips und Booster zeigt !
Für mich ist das eine darstellung falscher Tatsachen oder auch Irreführung

Desweiteren wurde ich heute von einer meldung meines Antivieren Progammes überrascht:
Objekt: Pool.exe
Pfad: [...]\Steam\steamapps\common\Pool Nation
Status: Virus gefunden
Virus: Trojan.Generic.12213462

dazu muss ich ja nichts weiter Sagen oder?

Auf grund der tatsachen das es über ein jahr für das "Box of Tricks" update gedauert hat und dieses update mehr DLC's enthält als es ein update war und dieser schönen meldung meines AV Programmes kann ich dieses Spiel nicht weiter empfehlen !

PS: ein DLC 2 Preise =)

I preordered it ( 1 ♥♥♥♥ing year ago) with the promise of the devs, that snooker-mode will come soon and it will be for free for the ppl who preordered it. Well guess what one year later still no snooker and still beta of the trickshot mode.
serious i am dissapointed and thats the reason i cant recommend this game. hate those liars

If you are looking for a super realistic pool game, you are in the right place.

10/10 Physics
10/10 Display
10/10 Music
10/10 Game modes

Online match system is just super good, but sadly you rarely see people playing.

the only problem is that the table has a high friction, if you are a real-life pool player, you would expect balls to go a little bit further but they don't.

Pool Nation is one of my favorite games on Steam. The solid gameplay and controls were not enough for Cherry Pop Games, they went ahead and added some beautiful locations each offered during day, sunset, and neon lit night time. The amazing soundtrack gets you in the mood whether you want to relax or get pumped. The game modes for single player include 3ball, 8ball, 9ball, endurance, golf, killer, rotation, speed, and straight. In addition, you can play online versus friends in a friendly match or choose to be competitive in tournament mode. The most recent update includes "box of tricks" free of charge, allowing you to create a custom trick shot that you can share with the world. This game is the complete package.

Excellent and believable pool sim. The accuracy of the ball mechanics is a real make or break for this game, and it excels in all departments. Controls are fluid and easy to learn. A few different game modes to keep everyone happy. It has 8 ball and 9 ball, as well as 'golf' etc. The balls are shiny, the tables look good and there is also a variety of locations to play in. Definiely worth every single penny i paid for. Highly recommend it!

“8-Ball - Corner Pocket”

‘Pool Nation’ is a fun, polished Billiards simulator and a bargain at its $1 pricetag (Steam Fall Sale 2014). Released as the maiden offering from Cherry Pop Games, it’s gorgeous visuals, multiple game modes, lengthy campaign and lots of unlockables will keep Pool fans coming back for more.

Campaign | Gameplay: Gamers have the choice of playing standard 8-ball or variations like 9-ball, Rotation, Endurance, Sudden Death etc across a variety of visually stunning locations / pool halls. A lengthy campaign mode (against AI opponents) allows you to perfect your game and strive toward numerous unlockables including new locations, pool table decals, new ball styles and cue styles. Additionally, the online mode allows you to match up with friends or other online players in single matches, Tournaments or King of the Hill events. Multiple difficulty levels (from Novice to Pro), a spot on physics engine, responsive controls, and a great soundtrack make this the best Pool game to date.

Flaws: In considering its biggest issues – 1. Game Stability is poor (Tabbing to windows results in an insta-crash) and 2. Online Gaming is largely dead (Bring your own friends). Additionally, the developers have pushed the previously promised ‘Trick Shot’ mode to the next release, and the lack of Co-op play is disappointing as well.

Overall, ‘Pool Nation’ is the best conception of a Billiards game to date and fans of the real game will find this a fun, polished distraction. But, even ardent fans soon realize that Pool without the smoky basement rooms, uneven cues, pitchers of beer, chatty girls, side-bets and bar-room trash talk, is a somewhat hollow experience. Recommended on Sale (Best played with Friends) - Rated (7/10)

A fantastic pool simulator. Frustratingly accurate! Turn off the assists for a proper experience but I warn you... It is frustratingly addictive. The A.I opponents will make quick work of you for making small errors in the later tournaments but it certainly isn't unfair. Just like real pool sometimes you will let your shot go & know you have messed up as soon as the cue touches the whiteball.

This is, without a doubt, the only pool game on steam. That's okay, because if there were others they'd just be copying what Pool Nation's doing here. Spot on physics, more game modes than you've probably ever thought of and the prettiest, most polished balls since the time I got banned from the Bowling Alley.

94/100. Only cons are that the menus can be a pain to navigate and there's no snooker.

Pool Nation is one of the most polished indie games of 2013- the animations are shiny and smooth, the gameplay is responsive and the physics are realistic. You won't find yourself screaming at this game for bouncing your balls in the wrong direction, or glitching out and dropping your cue ball through the table. With eleven game modes including tournaments, online play, and single-player endurance mode; as well as a slew of collectables to unlock, Pool Nation has no shortage of goodies to keep gameplay fresh.

The single player component revolves primarily around tournaments where you take on AI challengers of ever increasing difficulty. Each match has an associated list of challenges, and completing them unlocks a variety of cosmetic changes like cues and balls. Standard games like 9 ball are present along with more interesting options like Golf, which challenges you to put specific balls into specific pockets. There’s also a time attack style mode, where balls spawn on the table and you have to sink as many as possible in the time limit. There are Free Play, Versus, and Online modes present too, but I had a hard time finding anyone to challenge online.

Pool Nation is a great looking game that features bright and shiny graphics that makes each game, literally, feel new and different. There are some good themes on the game's soundtrack, and though the game's controls look difficult to use, they aren't difficult to learn. There are also options that can be easily turned on or off to give players assists in a game including arrows that point at the next balls that need to be hit or arrows that show where a ball will travel when hit. All of these features combine to make an excellent presentation for Pool Nation.

But is it fun? In short stints I definitely enjoyed playing the game, but it isn’t the type of thing I’d want to play for hours at a time. Having said that, I think Pool Nation is the kind of experience that would be a hit at a house party. If you’ve been searching far and wide for a Billiards simulator, and don’t have room for an actual table, Pool Nation is probably the solution. The physics are solid, the controls allow for extreme fine tuning of shots, and everything looks super shiny. A few more game types would be welcome, but for $10 Pool Nation is the gold standard in the category.
