Fun little game. Runs on 10.6.8. No "English" as I would use on a physical table to control the cue ball, but allows you to practice sight lines.
The computer opponent isn't very good, so you don't have too many worries about losing.
When you consider the game is free it's fun. If it were commercial it would need more realism, control and additional games beside 8 ball, but for what it is, it's fun to play around with.

Nice game, but with issues, as follows:

1. If you make a ball on the break, the game doesn't reflect
it in what the players are to shoot, ie, stripes or solids, but
you can keep shooting (you just have to count the balls to
see what you made). Since the game does displays text at
times, it would be nice for it to say "The player made the
5-ball", etc.

2. I agree with others, the computer makes terrible shots,
especially when the player has only the 8-ball to shoot. It
shoots a cut shot but on the wrong side, etc.

3. The player needs to have the ability to unselect which
pocket he/she has chosen when shooting the 8-ball, in
case he/she determines the need to select a different one.

4. What the heck is the white cue-ball with the black dot
in it on the right rail for? I've clicked it and nothing seems
to happen.

5. I wish it had more breaking power.

6. There were times when I felt I missed making any balls,
but the game indicated that I was to continue shooting.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that when the player is shooting
the 8-ball and scratches, he/she should lose, but the game
keeps playing.

Also, when asked to place the cue ball, I select a location
and the game ignores it and places it some place else.

Please do something with the computer shot selection,
because it has easy shots and it goes for impossible shots,
and it doesn't seem to know the 8-ball is in front of its
ball when it shots and it makes the 8-ball, and like I said
before, it loves to shoot cut shots all the time and they
are ridiculous.

But, I must say this is almost as much fun as playing a
real game of pool (which I love)!

It would be nice to take back a shot to test different
results and different ways the cue ball moves.

Because the game does NOT register balls made on the
break, when I made the 1-ball and then missed my next
shot, the computer shot a solid and the game incorrectly
then said I was strips and it was solids.

Cool game of pool. Aiming can be a bit finnickey, but no more so than in the real game, else does the job and does it well. Probably a bit basic on the gameplay options, but it runs smoothly with no problems under Lion.
