Ultimate Pool is a physically realistic pool simulation game for the Mac.

The balls, pooltable, and cues are all scaled versions of their real-world counterparts, and the ballsroll and collide just as they would on a real pool table.

And best of all, Ultimate Poolfeatures an elegant and intuitive user interface, making it easy and a lot of fun to play.

Ultimate Pool includes all of these great games:

* Stripes & Solids. A game with simple rules that enables you to start playing immediately and introduces Ultimate Pool's simple controls and elegant user interface.
* 8-ball. The game most familiar to casual pool players. Both a house version with more relaxed rules and the official Billiard Congress of America (BCA) tournament version are available.
* 9-ball. A fun and fast-paced pool game that you will probably enjoy playing again and again. A more casual house version of 9-ball is included in addition to the official tournament version.
* 14.1 continuous. This is the game that real pool players play and it is an outstanding test of your overall pool skills. A shorter and simpler house version (50 points) is included, as is a longer tournament version (150 points).
* Cutthroat. This casual barroom game is quick to play and involves three players instead of the usual two.
* Rotation. This very challenging game is a good test of a player's ability to set up position for subsequent shots using Ultimate Pool's English/Spin Control.
* 41. This is a fast and fun game that pits two players against each other as they both try to be the first to reach 41 points.

30 days trial.
