Originally released as part of Zeebo Family Pack, 8ball is a classic snooker game. Players can control the direction of stroke (by clicking on arrows on screen), the strength (by holding down the stroke button on screen), as well as where the white ball will be hit (by placing a blue dot, the aim, in the desired position in a white ball represented on the lower left corner of the screen), to add a spin.

The fist ball sank decides which player goes with the odds and which goes with the evens. Sinking balls in sequence awards more points than just sinking them randomly. Sinking the white ball or hitting an oponnent's ball directly grants the other player the right to place the white wherever he/she wants. As the player wins matches, he/she advances to higher levels with increasingly difficult opponents.

Players can select an avatar when creating a profile. The game includes a global, cross platform high-score ranking that allows the player to share his/her top scores and compete for the highest score possible against other players. [source:mobygames]
