Pros and cons of Pool Rebel app for iPhone and iPad

Pool Rebel app good for

I just bought this game and I can say that this is a very very good pool game I have to say thou it would be nice to see this game have a practice mode, and even a snooker mode for trick shots It would also would be nice to see a zooming feature so you can see closer to the pool table and maybe an online feature for future updates!!! I know some are going to say the price isnt worth it but i think its worth it its good to know that someone took alot of time and effort to make a very very good game I also would like to see a volume options because the sound is low and maybe music in the background Basically I want it to be better than all other pool apps because the only pool app that in my opinion is very good is midnight pool because you can pretty much do everything!!! but other then that VERY COOL GAME!!!
It is an AMAAAAAZING game I use to play it when i had my experia It has an amazing graphics and game play and very realistic Those who says the oposite dont know how to play..
I dont like the pool game this much to be addicted to this app but boy, how beautiful it is. You can control every little thing of your shoot. Even though I deleted it, this game really deserves its 5 stars.
(29Nov08) - The update introduced a new way to fine adjust aiming (a pad) which made the process really faster for me because now you can simply tap. One more star for the new and welcome improvements. I still hope to see bigger balls tho its kind of suggestion that requires a lot of code changes I presume. First review: After starting the game for the first time it was clear that this port, from other mobile phones, did not took advantage or considered the touch screen interface because menus items are glued together. However, I did not have any problems with it yet. There are some nice options and the Player statistics lead me to the blind purchase, I mean buying without trying it first.  As soon as the pool table is presented one thing popped into my mind: why they didnt try to make the table as big as the screen making the balls as big as possible?? The balls look small and an Info button is necessary to revel their numbers from time to time. The graphics are nice. To aim took more time that Id like. After I run the tutorial Ive found a way to fine aim using accelerometer. You have to keep pressing a button (G-aim) and move the iPhone. It could be a two state button: press aim then press again to stop g-aim feature. But what I dont understand is why not let those arrows that are displayed when youre aiming make the fine adjustment and let the other areas for huge steps. Itd be a lot easier, more natural. The arrow is a great idea because it proves that the game could use a bigger table and make the controls to be displayed on demand. The fact is that you cant simply tap in order to fine adjust. However, the aiming set here is complete: power, angle and so on. Well, then the first shot. You have to press Shoot button which is fine. Since the aiming can be a lot of hold the cue and drag it around the Shoot button is kind of necessary here. The sound is nice. After shot the balls move, move and it seems that they are moving too much. This is a simulation and maybe Im using too much power and I didnt get the right game timing yet. But I always have a feeling that the balls should not move that much. To make things worse theres no way to accelerate the shoot... You have to wait and sometimes wait, wait until all balls finally stop. Even tho all those "not so good" points I kind of like the game. Ill keep playing it for sure. Considering the price and the port feeling that the game delivers Id rate it 3/5 but with a positive hope that some adjustments can appear to make it a 5/5 game.
I think the physics of this game are really excellent, and I really appreciate the fine control over your shot. Lots of gameplay modes, and the save game feature rocks! I think top-down view is better than most of the 3D implementations out there as the balls appear nice and smooth while most of the 3D versions have jagged looking balls when they are in the far side of the table. Overall, this is great, IMO.
Great layout, well thought out game play! Needs major rewrite because of slow response and table physics (ball rolls forever). Top down view works fine. Overall, an interesting effort. Look forward to an update. 2nd REVIEW: Ive been playing 14.1, in easy mode, and my opinion rating went from 2 stars to 4 stars. There are 16 micro pages of rules for 14.1. Thats how complete this app is written. My initial impression was reported too quickly! WISH LIST: 1) More accurate ball roll (less rollout). 2) The addition of throw. 3) More accurately sized side pockets.

Some bad moments

Graphic are bad control very hard to understand Im gonna say it guys skip this one even if today may 19 2012 the app is free just please dont download it it not worth it ( from my own opinion)
This not a simple or quick game. Very tedious. Fine aiming is difficult.
I just received my new iPad 3. I installed Pool Rebel. As soon as I select Pool Rebel, it crashes. I uninstalled and reinstalled Pool Rebel. It still crashes. Others may have it working on the new iPad 3, but it does not work on mine. This is a word of warning to others. I hope the developer(s) find something and get this fixed. Until I get an update, this will have to be dropped in the Unused folder.
This was one of my favorite games but now crashes immediately after launch. Dev - please fix. I previously rated this 5 stars, as when it works, the game is excellent.
I should have read the review, it does not work on an iPad 3 it will not open Im disappointed.
Hard to operate cue, awkward interface, and ball operation doesnt feel very realistic. It may be one of the better billiards games, but still not good.
