Realistic simulation of 9-Ball pool game.

Overview

MacPool is a very realistic simulation of the popular 9-Ball pool game. Simple and easy to play, designed with our latest "Smoked Window" interface.

In 9-Ball Billiards, you have to shoot the lowest ball on the table, and the one who pockets the nine-ball first wins.

Just give it a try downloading the evaluation version. MacPool will provide you hours of entertainment.

What's new in MacPool

Version 11.0.0.0:
  • All five games now included. No more add-ons necessary
  • Any license (MacPool, Carambola or Snooker) will unlock the full game
  • Single game-room for all five games when playing online
  • New intro sound

MacPool is a good looking pool simulation, although it a shame that it isn't more playable. It has a lot of good features but again it's slow and very frustrating. Bakno's Billiards application is much better, but after purchasing MacPool the guys at Bakno aren't prepared to provide a discount for Billiards. Poor customer service.

No, no, and no. I can't even finish a game on the demo before it shuts it off! I don't know anyone who would buy a game that doesn't come with an even decent demo.

DON'T BUY THIS SOFTWARE! If you change the hard drive in your mac or get a different mac, you will have to purchase another license. I had to purchase another license to get it working again on the same mac. When I asked for assistance to correct errors and inability to unlock the game with my license that I paid for, I was ignored. This is totally ridiculous and just greedy.

I have just tried it and am not sure I like it. The balls look too big for the table, and on my old iBook the movement of the balls is a bit jerky, And, perhaps it's because there was only a player (couldn't find how to set multiplayer game), but it didn't seem to call my faults, only when I pocketed the cue ball did it say something. Wish there could be a snooker version of this game

I tried the demo today, and I like it. It works well on my MacBook Pro, and it's easy to play - you only have to glance at the directions to get the idea. I seem to be as bad at this am I am at real pool, so I guess it's realistic.

The trial version won't allow you to complete a game. The intelligent approach would be to give the user full play for a set number of games, say ten. I found this most irksome, therefore I will NOT purchase MacPool, even at the MU Promo price of $12.95. (Actually, the regular price should be $12.95 for this game)

Table "friction" remains high (barely changed by a settings option). Even after dragging mouse far off the table, most of my shots died before hitting the target ball. No sale.

Pity they haven't done a version of Snooker. I'd be much more interested in that. I'm also not very keen on their smoked glass interface, which is just yet another unwanted window style variation.

Well I brought this 4 months ago with a two license deal for $15 - seems to have gone up a tad since then. No way to turn off 'version checking' or whatever you like to name 'calling home' Now if you could change the angle/viewpoint or have replays of 'great shots' or set up a five game series etc... Don't know about 'hours of entertainment' but then again games like this are thin on the ground for Mac users - So this unfortunately is the best sim of the great 'money game' you are going to find.

Trial is very limited, but I'm not crazy about what I see. Maybe if I was on a higher end machine graphics would be better or action smoother, but this is just fair to me. (1Ghz G4, 1.5Gb, 64M video)

Playing Q-Ball on my PS2 actually helped my pool game - a lot. I was very surprised, and since then have been on the lookout for a nice pool sim for my computer. This looks to be at least worth a try, even better if they update on occasion and plan to add other game types.

(note to self--don't use ampersands in your entries). I have their Slide and Stack game, and it never fails to frustrate and challenge me. Also, the way the guy says the company name is....well....sexy! It's worth launching the game at least once just to hear the company name, imo. :-)

I'm an avid pool player. However, this is the first pool simulation I've ever played. The physics seem up to par, and I really like the "Table Quality" adjustment. I have yet to experience any bugs. But it should be noted, I haven't played online yet. Overall the gameplay is very good, and quite addicting.

OK... I bought his lovely little game to waste some time - so I installed it on my laptop. It was a great kick. I bought a new laptop... installed this POS on my new laptop - (the old one went to one of the guys I work with) - and I brought the old laptop to new - as in the Welcome window new... all other apps (including this one) wiped clean. I decide I am going to run MacPOS on my new laptop. I use the same email address and rego number (no where on the website does it say that the copy you buy is tied to one machine & EMAIL ADDRESS - FOREVER and if you buy a new registration number (which I did - just to play it fair) and have it sent to the same email address that you cannot use it on any other machine than the OLD machine that was originally registered to that email address! So, I have to get e new email address just to keep these (oh I want to swear so bad right now!!) "duh-velopers" happy. Oh, I also wan to load it on my Mcpro - so I can waste time on a 30" monitor too... Easy - yes? NO - Have ot hve a seperate email addres to register the other machine to. What a phuquen waste of time !!!! For $25 USD. I think I'd rather eat nails! Oh, I wrote a letter. No response. they sure were haoy to take my money twice. $10 first time and $15 the second time. Am I pi$$ed - yes!! Why - because as slick as their website is an as good as the programme is - the registrtion process is a pain inthe a$$. I have a $13,000 scientific analysis applicationthat I can run on three machines - that al it requires is I enter the rego number - do a send back and "boom!!!" I am a happy user on all three machines! Why is this so friggen hard?

Ignore my previous review of 5.2 below. Then I was not a seasoned user of this app. I've had it many months now and quit using it due to the incredibly huge number of bugs it had. Upon downloading 6.0.0 there's even more. Now practice games never end. Vers 5.2 never did that. There's still no restart button, so now the user must quit the app and relaunch it to do another practice game. If one chooses the settings menu after moving their mouse (and thus the cue ball), the ball is placed where the mouse last was, forcing the user to shoot from there or again, restart the entire app. Also unlike 5.2, the user must endure an audio sample each time. Bakno doesn't publish release notes or bug fix lists either. Fun for a while, but all the bugs are frustrating.

This game has several bugs, but is still very fun to play. I have no doubt the authors will address these problems and so paid for my copy. Besides, it's too addictive to play the demo version. ;-)

This is really a fun simulation. The sounds and the physics are very realistic. I can't get my son off it sometimes. I'm almost ready to buy it, but the only thing is that I wish there was a way to blow it up a bit. I know maybe there has to be room for the back swing, so to speak, but I think many people with larger monitors would still be fine. Perhaps an option in this area? I hope I haven't missed it, if indeed there is such an option. I couldn't find one. Thanks for a fun game, nonetheless.
