Left mouse button [LTM] – get ready for to roll.
[F] – check score.
[E] – end minigame.
Here you can see the controls at the beginning (after the game is started).
[W,A,S,D] – set position of the white ball
[LMB] (Left Mouse Button) – continue game (confirm position)
[E] - end
There is also another option of controlling the game:
[A] and [D] - focusing (rotation) – a white line is displayed to help estimate the movement of the white ball
[Mouse] (mouse movement) – set which part of the white ball you want to hit (either the middle – movement straight, or side to get the ball spinning)
[Space] – hold the Space button to get better control during focusing (refined movements).
[LMB] – move towards the part of shooting
[V] – view change (table view or top view)
[E] – end game
Now here is how to actually play:
[Mouse] – just like in bowling, you must move the mouse backwards and then forwards rapidly. The faster you do this, the stronger is the shot.
[Backspace] – if you want to make any changes to the previous setting press [Backspace] during this stage of the game
[E] – end of the game
Your opponent continues if: the white ball, that you hit, does not touch any other ball or you hit your opponent’s ball first
or even if one of your opponent’s balls falls into a hole during your game and finally, if the white ball falls into a hole or leaves the table in some other way.
In all the cases described above, the second player continues. If the white ball is hit into a hole, the next player can place it anywhere on the table.
AI players do this quite often, so you should try it too (use the [W],[S],[A],[D] keys).
The player who gets all his balls and then the black ball 8 into a hole first is the winner.
You lose if you place the black 8 into a hole before all the other balls are already in a hole or if the black 8 is placed into a hole at the end as it should, but the white ball falls into a hole as well.
