PoolBallPoolBall is a sport-like game which is somehow a mixture of pool and soccer: basically two teams of disks that can be moved over a field try to score by pushing a smaller disk inside a score area.
The game is turn-based and the rules very easy to learn, but still the game can be challenging.
PoolBall is shareware: you can freely download a demo version. The full version is available for a small price... if you like the game please consider buying: it's really cheap. In the free version you can play a match against the computer, but you cannot choose the computer skill level or modify the teams. What you get in the full version:
- the campaign mode, where you can play leagues, personalize your team and make it grow match after match
- in single match mode you can play human vs. human, choose the AI skill level and the team level
- game options (sound, fullscreen) are saved and restored so that you don't have to modify them every time you run the game
If you want to have an overview of the game here you can find the game manual.
PoolBall is also available for Android phones. For the Android version check the Android Market.

Get the free versionPoolBall is a Java game, which means you need Java Runtime Environment installed. However, if you have Linux or Windows operating system you can download a full package with PoolBall and JRE and you won't need anything else.
If you know what you are doing and already have a JRE installed you can try the JAR-only download, which does not includes java. Just be advised: PoolBall is developed and tested with JRE 1.6.20; it probably works well with other JRE (including Adobe-developed MacOsX Java version) but it's your own risk. Anyway, if you can run the free version chances are that the full version will also be ok.
