All Articles: Pure Pool
Welcome to the weekend as three new games have been added to the Xbox Games Store. Terraria, the side-scrolling world-builder, is now available for the Xbox One and with a special launch trailer to boot. It’s joined by Pure Pool, VooFoo’s billiards sim that was originally released for the PC and PS4 over the Summer.
Over on the Xbox 360 Games Store, Codemasters’ return to their top-down racing roots, Toybox Turbos, is now available to download.
More details on all three games can be found after the break. (more…)
Every time I sit down to play a game based on some sort of real life sport, the same dilemma runs through my head… why am I playing the virtual version of something I can do out in the real world? I may not be able to putt like Woods, score like Beckham, or run absurdly fast like Bolt, but I can head down to the nearest playing field and make a decent go at it. However, those games allow a form of wish fulfillment to take place on the part of the player, giving them the chance for the sport to be recreated at its highest level. Pool, on the other hand, is a more two-dimensional sport. There is only so much you can do standing around some green felt, holding a stick, and smacking around some balls. There is no management simulation, no on-the-fly formation changes and tactics, no real pop culture icons of the sport. On top of that, pool has that ease of access that American football and the like do not. When you can head down to a local drinking hole, pop a few coins into a table, and play, why does virtual pool need to exist? That’s the question VooFoo Studio attempts to answer with Pure Pool.
And you know what? It’s answered startlingly well. (more…)
