HaPpY hAlOwEeEn from the Cherry POP team...

Every year, on All Hallows Eve, our cheeky cherry turns evil! As the sun sets he undergoes a spooky transformation into his alter-ego the 'Chumpkin' it sounds cute, but he's not, he shares nothing with his usual joyful self except for his sweet red skin. So on this sacred spooky day where the dead arise from their slumber the Chumpkin bounces around the streets of Manchester waiting for unsuspecting victims, so if you hear a thud at the door tonight, don't open it or you may get a visit from the ChUmPkIn... mmmwwaahahahah

Here's Chumpkin....!!!


To celebrate this spooky time of year we're offing discounts on our DLC and the Pool Nation FX:

The Pool Hall Menu

The Pool Hall is much more than an online menu. This is the online hub where all online matches are displayed, joined, created and edited in one place. Live updates of the table state are displayed, so this menu itself feels alive.

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.”

““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

I bought this before they knew how they were going to implement their "Box of Tricks" but were already advertising what it would look like and all the cool things you could do with it, saying it would be a free update.

Then they released the Box of Tricks with Workshop support and made all the fun things they advertised (loops and tubes) pay-for DLC. So the reason I bought this game was locked behind DLC. Welp.

I am really liking this game, just a nice price on the game and looking to the whole game, they spend a fair amount of effort and work into most things game should have (user interface, ball pyschics etc).

I really hope the next version of Pool Nation is going to hit a new level of pool games in general.

For those putt a bad review because they could not find somebody to play with, just add a friend on Steam who also play Pool Nation.

8/10 - Best Pool game since Yahoo! Pool

I prefer the controls of Yahoo Pool and the intense player base, but this game brings an updated 3D Pool experience.

Controls are a little clunky, but overall this is an amazingly full pool game. Combos, Tournaments, Working Online play and achievments.

I got this on-sale for $5 or so; however I would pay around $19.99 for it to be honest. Goes on-sale often though

If you've ever touted yourself as "good at pool" while drinking, but have never actually played it sober, then this is gonna make you feel awesome.
