Billiards City is popular modern arcade style billiards game created by MOUNTAIN GAME. It’s reminiscent of the old pool flash games in gameplay mechanics, look, and feel. It’s one of the few pool games on the list with a decent single player mode.

In addition, the game comes with a variety of unique and interesting table shapes and configurations. For example, Billiards City uses the latest technology to create the most exciting and realistic billiards simulator. And allows you to experience pool like never before, thanks to the stunning HD graphics, fantastic playability and ultra realistic ball physics. 

The game uses a level system and it gets progressively more difficult as you go and is entirely free with advertising. The ads may come at a frequent clip, but it’s better than dealing with a freemium game so it’s only a minor complaint from us. We would also like to see other game types in future updates if the developer can swing it.

This is one of the best free pool games with no in-app purchases.

 

Key Features

  • Single Player Mode
  • Accurate ball physics
  • Realistic 3D ball animation
  • Touch control for Pool Cue
  • Smooth Controls

Cons

  • Frequent advertisements
  • Game sometimes crashes between ads

 

Billiards City is available for free with IAP’s on Google Playstore and Apple Appstore.

 

2. 8 Ball Pool

Currently one of the most popular pool games in the Appstore, 8 Ball Pool’s popularity stems from an incredible diversity of gameplay. For example, an online multiplayer mode, tournaments with up to eight players, and a shallow leveling system. You unlock various places to play pool and various table colors as you rank up.

Players who compete earn Pool Coins. They are usable to pay your way into higher ranking tournaments. The mechanics, graphics, and gameplay are fairly typical as you see in most freemium games. This is definitely one for the casual players and people who enjoy playing online.

The freemium grind is a little tedious in this game and some online components don’t always work as anticipated. However, it has 15 million reviews and 100 million downloads for a reason. People seem to like it. So if this is what you want, then the game’s gonna deliver.

 

Key Features

  • Has 1-on-1 and 8 player multiplayer

You can play top-down or from the side if you prefer. The mechanics themselves are fairly standard. Drag the stick back and let it rip to hit the various balls at various speeds.

4. Kings of Pool

Kings of Pool is an online pool game for the more competitive players out there. This one also has some really neat game mechanics. 8-ball is the name of the game in this one. It features leaderboards, decent graphics, and a trick shot engine for you daredevils out there.

This one also has an AR (augmented reality) element. You can scan a flat surface and pop a pool table there with your phone’s camera sensor. That is a fun trick and one you definitely don’t see every day. Pool feels like one of those types of games that works well in AR and our experience with it was fine.

The game has the occasional bug or physics issue, but nothing serious enough to really complain about.

 

Key Features

  • Online Multiplayer for the competitive players
  • Trick shot engine
  • Augmented Reality compatible

Cons

  • Some bugs and physics issues
  • IAP’s can sometimes be pay-to-win

 

Kings of Pool is available for free with IAP’s on Google Playstore.

 

5. Pool Break Pro 3D

Pool Break Pro is one of the older pool games on mobile. However, it’s also one of the best. You have a variety of game types to choose from. They include 3-ball, 4-ball, 6-ball, 7-ball, 8-ball, UK 8-ball, 9-ball, and 10-ball along with Carrom, Crokinole, Snooker (six and ten reds), and more. If you want a variety of game play, this is the one for you. The mechanics are simple enough and the game looks good. We even like the game physics.

However, this game hasn’t had an update in almost two years at the time of this writing. We’re a little worried that the developer abandoned it. We highly recommend trying out the free version (with ads) first to make sure it’s one you want to spend a buck on. It also features online multiplayer and pass-and-play local multiplayer.

 

Key Features

  • Incredible variety of game types to choose from
  • Incredible 3D graphics
  • Realistic physics
  • Flexible difficulty levels
  • Pass-n-play

Cons

  • Frequent advertisements
  • Sometimes puts more emphasis on microtransactions

 

Pool Break Pro 3D is available for $1.95 with IAP’s on Google Playstore.

 

6. Total Snooker

Total Snooker is a great, basic Snooker game for mobile. It uses a top-down, 2D perspective for full board view. However, you don’t get the power of a 3D perspective. The game also features tournaments, online play, and you can invite friends to play with you. Otherwise, there isn’t really a lot to this game. You just play Snooker and move on with your day. We enjoy the minimalism, but some may want more content like a story mission mode or something like that.

 

Key Features

  • Realistic physics
  • Straightforward game of Snooker

Cons

  • Will sometimes play your game for you
  • Controls can be an issue
  • Weird difficulty levels
  • No multiplayer

 

Total Snooker is available for free with Ads or without ads for $1.99 on Google Playstore.

 

7. Pool Stars

Pool Stars is another simple pool game with a lot of content. The game comes with both 2D and 3D perspectives. Thus, you can play in the most comfortable fashion for you. You also get multiplayer, a single player career mode, and leaderboards. However, the game’s most unique feature is the custom challenge mode.

Players can create their own challenges and share with other players. This one features predominately 8-ball and 9-ball as the game types. It’s a freemium game and that means it has some of those freemium problems. On the other hand, we quite liked the creativity with the challenge creation mode.

This developer also makes Snooker Stars, another competent and enjoyable pool game. This same developer also does Pool Night and Pool Master. You can go with any of them. They all play basically the same with some minor exceptions.

 

Key Features

  • Near realistic graphics
  • Multiplayer
  • Realistic physics
  • Comes with 2D and 3D perspectives
  • Custom Challenge is amazing
  • Has single player

Cons

  • Frequent advertisements
  • Has emphasis on microtransactions
  • Multiplayer can sometimes pair you with a higher skilled player

 

Pool Stars is available for free with IAP’s on Google Playstore.

 

8. Billiards Club

Billiards Club is one of the simplest and easiest billiard games on the list. It boasts a more relaxing experience than a competitive one. It uses 8-ball rules. You simply plop the cue ball down and try to sink every ball. It boasts decent ball physics and a top-down, 2D style.

The game also supports offline play so you can play it almost anywhere. There really isn’t much wrong with it. It’s a bit shallow. You don’t get things like a storyline or multiplayer.

However, there are nine other pool games on the list so that’s fine. If you just want an arcade pool game as a quick time waster, this one does the trick nicely.

 

Key Features

  • Simple game with Single player mode
  • Supports offline play
  • Realistic physics
  • Simple controls

Cons

  • Frequent advertisements
  • No multiplayer

 

Billiards Club is available for free with ads on Google Playstore.

 

9. Pool Mania

Pool Mania is one of the standout billiard games in the market. You don’t have a ton of game modes or super complicated mechanics. You put the cue ball down, hit it, and sink some balls. This is an excellent and simple arcade game for those who just want to goof around. There is an arcade mode with 120 levels along with a challenge mode, table customization, and more.

The developer also promises more stuff in future updates. We hope those updates also come with some optimization because the ads can be a little obnoxious from time to time and it drains the battery a little faster than we’d like for how simple the game is.

Otherwise, it’s completely free with advertising and no in-app purchases.

 

Key Features

  • Arcade Mode and Challenge Mode are fun time wasters
  • Realistic physics
  • Skill ceiling is low and is for all types of players

Cons

  • Frequent advertisements
  • Incredibly simple
  • No Multiplayer

 

Pool Mania is available for free with IAP’s on Google Playstore.

 

10. Real Pool 3D

Real Pool 3D is one of the best billiard games out there. It features Facebook sign-in and you can play against your friends with that function if you want to. Additionally, the game features a 2D and 3D view, online games against random players, social clubs (like a guild or a clan), and a collection of pool cues to collect. You can also play 8-ball or Snooker. It’s a decent experience once you dump a couple of dozen hours into it. The early game for this one isn’t the greatest and you have to grind it out a bit before you feel like you’re playing real, actual pool.

 

Key Features

  • Pass-and-play is possible
  • Multiple game modes
  • Realistic physics

Cons

  • Frequent advertisements on the free version
  • Sometimes puts more emphasis on microtransactions on free version

 

Real Pool 3D is available for free with ads/IAP’s and for $2.05 without ads on Google Playstore.
