I think I noticed a bug: when I turn off shot recaps, control never passes back to the other player (even if I foul).

That is interesting, I would like to know more.

The only time it wouldn't switch would be post game.


This has been fixed, sorry for the delay!


Hi - love the game ! Would really like to have a single player mode - thanks !


I’m really enjoying the game but so bad at pool. Any chance of adding an ‘easy mode’ that would show the angle the ball you’re hitting will go in?


I would like to add that at some point yeah!

I've tried 3x now to sideload 1.2 into my Playdate and it never takes. Not having the same problem with other games. LOVE the game but would like to have the 1.2 features!

that’s weird, I have no clue why that would happen! If you haven’t yet, try sideloading via the simulator maybe?

Hope you can get it working!


So I'm clear.... No AI opponent?

yeah not currently, sorry. I want to add AI opponents at some point, but I am not sure if it will be too easy to beat!

Liking the game, BUT, is there anyway to not have a message pop up after every shot and you have to press B to go to the next shot? Ruins the flow of the game honestly.  But it plays very nicely otherwise.


That is valid, I found myself pressing B immediately when the balls stop, but ill look into making it better in a later update!


V1.2 has a setting to skip unnecessary shot recaps.

Hope this makes your experience more fun!

It's pretty satisfying to use the crank to aim and shoot. Music is proper funky.

I don't know exactly what happened, but when scratching for the second time I was unable to set down the cue ball and had to reset. I haven't had the issue since.

Oh shoot, I tried and couldn't get it to happen, but ill try to figure it out, if anyone figures out how it happens lmk!

This also happened to me but on my first scratch. I'm not sure how to reproduce it yet but if I discover how, I'll let you know.


Fixed! see V1.1
