Trickochet is a little puzzle/platform/pool game where your goal is to shoot bullets at targets while while avoiding walls and other obstacles. Move around with the arrow keys or WASD and find the best spot to shoot the targets. Things become interesting around level 15! Have fun!
Aim and click to fire the ball around the game window and bounce into lines to remove them. Clear lines connected to the node to get rid of it.
You have a limited number of shots in each level (10 at level 1), and you gain an extra shot for each five levels you successfully complete.
Simple concept, easy to learn, tricky to master!

Powerpool 2 has 2 new table shapes to play on – a pentagonal shape and a cross shape. “There is also a new power up ball that makes the cue ball so big it can’t get sunk so you can smack it round with impunity.
Each table has 20 different unique levels to play, and on each table it is possible to rack up gigantic combos and points tallies.”
Click on the white ball then drag away from it to set the power and direction of the pool cue. Release to shot.
|PowerPool is a fast-paced and challenging Pool with powerups from NinjaKiwi! “Crack your way through 20 levels of exploding, multiplying and other craziness to build your score to mammoth proportions.” Click and pull back on the white ball to set direction and power of the shot. Release to shoot. Have fun!|
Plunk Pool is a hybrid Mini-Golf / Billiards game created by Joe Striedl.
“Use your Smiley ‘Cue’ ball to knock all the other balls into the goals within the shot limit on each level. Different Color balls and obstacles indicate how bouncy they are: Red is super bouncy, Purple is perfectly bouncy, and Blue is not quite so bouncy.”
There are three courses and 27 levels to play in Plunk Pool. How long will it take you to complete them all?
Your goal in Big Diamond is the same as in Shuffle Snake Bites: shoot all marbles off the board with your silver marble. The main difference with SSB is that the levels are not timed anymore, but you only have a limited number of shoots to clear the board.
Harder than Shuffle Snake Bites, Big Diamond is VERY challenging: if you are looking for a relaxing game without frustration, forget this one ;-)
Your goal here is to shoot all yellow marbles off the board with your red marble.
To spice things up, each level is timed and higher levels include more and more obstacles and make hitting the yellow balls difficult.
Shuffle Snake Bites is a challenging game: it offers over 80 levels to play, and will provide hours of entertainment for all marble/pool fans!
After ShoOot 2, Cobacoli is the second game released this month by Tonypa, something between marbles and pool. Your goal here is to clear the board by knocking each of the colored balls into a wall of the same color with your white ball.
To do so, use your mouse to aim in the right direction and click to shoot. You have only a limited number of shoots and each time your white ball hits a colored wall, your shoot count is decreased by one. No more shoot and it is game over.
Despite its simple graphics and gameplay, Cobacoli is a fun and highly challenging game, especially in later levels (30 in total). And yes, it is true, this game is very difficult to master, but it is also very, very… addictive. A must-play game for all pool fans.
Turtle Pool is a clone of Crazy Pool, where the goal is to remove all the turtles from the pool. To do so, simply hit two turtles of the same color together to make them disappear.
Use your mouse to click the white turtle, hold on the left button and drag to aim and reach the desired power; then release the mouse button to shot.
Each stage is timed and you have only 60 seconds to clear the pool.

Created by Wildsnake Software for Shockwave, Shuffle is a quick skill game somewhere between marbles and pool. Your goal here is to knock all the yellow balls off the board before the computer does the same with your red balls. If you succeed, you’ll advance to the next level and you’ll get fewer balls.
Click one of the red balls and drag the mouse to select the direction and speed. Release the mouse button to shoot.
Nicely done, Shuffle is fun to play but becomes repetitive after a few minutes. That being said, if you like it, then I recommend you give a try to Rebonds, a game that shares similarities with Shuffle.
Crazy Pool 2 has just been released a few days ago at 2DPlay. This sequel to Crazy Pool features 30 brand new levels, with new obstacles like teleporters, fans and frozen balls.
The goals in the Crazy Pool series are the same as those of a conventional pool games: remove all the balls from the table. But there is not a single pocket on the table, so you won’t sink balls in holes here. All you will have to do instead is to hit two balls of the same color together to make them disappear!
You must use the white ball for you first shot; after that, you can use any remaining ball, and you don’t even need to wait for a ball to stop before shooting it again. Sounds crazy, no?
Use your mouse to click a ball, hold down your left button and drag to aim and reach the desired power; then release the mouse button to shot.
Several obstacles were implemented in Crazy Pool: bombs, color changers, bumpers, magnets and anti-magnets. You will find them again in Crazy Pool 2, plus the new ones mentioned above. You will even find several really disturbing “shot-in-the-dark” levels in Crazy Pool 2!
With two minutes available in each level, you won’t feel so much pressure to clear the table, at least for the 20 first levels.
Crazy Pool 2 is definitely and without any doubt the craziest pool game available online: if you’re looking for a classic pool game, don’t even think about this one! But if you don’t like pool game rules and just want to have fun, then have fun!
And if you want more, you can also have a look to the original game, Crazy Pool. Expect at least half an hour to complete the 30 levels in both games. You need to register first if you want to enter the high score hall of fame. Have fun!
Lightning pool is so far the best pool simulation I’ve ever played online. Developed by lightning Games, a wholly owned subsidiary of 3rd Sense, the game features 18 different levels, each of them with 6 red balls and a black one. As in almost any pool games, the object here is to clear the table by sinking all the balls within the time limit.
Several power-ups will appear on the table such as watches that give or take away extra-time or coins (collect them to unlock the secret levels). Avoid lightning or the game ends immediately.
Use your mouse to aim your cue, press and hold the left button until you reach the desired power and then release it. Not hitting a ball or sinking the white ball will costs you a four-second penalty.
As Lightning pool saves your progress, you won’t have to replay any level unless you want to make a better score.
Graphics are nice, physics are great and controls smooth and precise; the game is easy to get into, but beware, this doesn’t mean that the game is easy. Avoiding lighting is challenging, and clearing some levels within the time limit can be tricky…
I you like pool games, don’t miss Lighting Pool: you won’t be disappointed! Have fun!
Rumble Ball is a set of four great games developed by the Russian Arseniy Shklyaev. The goal in every opus is to score as many points as you can by hitting colored items with a ball. Both yellow balls and colored cubes score points. The more items you hit at once, the more points will be added to your score. The first item is worth 10 points, the second 20, the third 30, and so on (5, 10, 15, 20 points and so on in RB 3).
You can control the way you hit your ball with your mouse and then click to launch it through obstacles.
There is no limit to the number of times you may hit the ball: having said that, feel free to find the best position without hitting any obstacle, and then pocket as much points as possible on your next shot!
The downside in Rumble Ball 1 and 2 is that you have no control on the ball speed, leading to a real frustration sometimes.
Luckily, in the third and fourth installments of the series, Arsenij has implemented this essential function, leading to a much more enjoyable game play.
Traps, like mines and holes are also another improvement in Rumble Ball 3 and 4: from now on, you will get a penalty of 250 and 500 points respectively if your ball hits a mine or falls in a hole. Even worse, if your ball ends in a hole, you will have to restart the current level from scratch!
Every Rumble Ball game comes with 5 different levels, for a 5 to 10 minutes play time.
With pleasant graphics, nice sounds (especially when getting combos) and an intuitive interface, Rumble Ball is definitely the kind games everybody likes.

All you have to do first is to find the best angle to shot your white ball using the mouse (thanks to the green arrow), and start watching the ‘ballet’ !
With such a simple game-play, you could easily imagine getting bored just after a couple of attempts : but JP, Rebonds french developer, was smart enough to add these damned high scores scrolling at the bottom of the screen. And it’s such a good idea, because it helps you staying in, trying to find the trick leading to the Hall of Fame !
With nice graphics and well-done physics, Rebonds is fun and you’ll probably come back again later. Have fun!
