Pool Panic


Pool Panic is the world’s least realistic pool simulator. Play as a mischievous, and dare we say, oblivious cue ball in a giant game of pool that sprawls across a colorful cartoon overworld with more than 100 levels.
Explore jungles, deserts, carnivals, cities and more while knocking around a peculiar cast of billiard balls, most of which won’t appreciate being pocketed.
Note: Pool Panic plays best with a controller

Every level of Pool Panic has an 8-ball, but he won't be standing around waiting to be potted. While you seek him out, you'll be occupied by plenty of strange activities involving balls:
  • Ride a Ferris Wheel! Knock off other balls for your own gain!
  • Explore caves where even the bats are balls!
  • Play nine holes of mini-golf with a pool cue!
  • Flee the zombie horde! But careful, they're contagious!
  • Go skiing and mountain climbing! With balls!
  • Hunt boy scouts in the woods! Steal their hats! Wait...


  • Explore a colorful overworld with more than 100 levels. Shoot pool in deserts, gardens, cities, the carnival, the woods, and more
  • Get mad at balls that dash away from you, think strategically about when to hit toothy balls that can unleash stomp attacks, and line up the perfect shot.
  • Take down bosses and join a motorcycle gang chase.
  • Unlock higher levels of the central tower as you travel the world. What awaits you at the top?
  • Challenge up to four of your friends in local multiplayer.
  • Hats. This game has hats.

    A crazy, innovative and funny variation on pool, where the tables are full of life and the balls try to avoid being hit. The only aspect I have to reprove is the game’s repetitiveness – the scenery changes but basic mechanics always stay the same. [10/2018, p.74]

  • Well, obviously Pool Panic won’t please every player, for its visual style is… different, to say the least. But the others will enjoy its numerous challenges and its sense of humour.

  • With puzzles that hit more often than they miss and an art style that had me eagerly anticipating how they’d render each new setting and creature, Pool Panic is a brilliantly strange experience that’s worth playing just to be able to say that one waded into its madness and came back whole. If only it offered a slightly clearer structure and a little bit of guidance, it would be more than just a fascinating experiment in seeing how far the concept of playing pool can be mangled while still retaining its basic appeal.
