I'm new on here and would love to share some ideas for Hustle Kings. This game is great. I played it at a friends for about 20 minutes and fell in love. I am fanatic of billiards and usually play on the real slate but this game felt very realistic and offered things like Snooker, which I don't often get a chance to play locally which is a shame as it's a fantastic game. It's also a great way to meet billiards players from around the world.
Anyway, I first wanted to say "Great job Voofoo! Great game!". I also wanted to encourage you to do more download-able content for this title. I would love to see the following:
7 Ball - this game, though fast, is a really fun game. It's great for players who want to load up Hustle Kings for a quick game, but it is also a lot of fun and offers strategy similar to 9 ball. It would be great if you gave us the special striped 7 ball as seen on TV for this game too.
Baseball billiards - A fun game that uses 21 balls (16-21 additional special striped balls). The player has nine shots or innings at the table. Each single inning he tries to pot as many balls as he can before he misses and outs.
Poker billiards - Uses a special set of balls that are marked 1-16 on one side and A, K, Q, J on the other. Players try to pocket balls to form poker hands, with no more then 5 balls being allowed to be potted during a single inning.
Russian Pyramid - This is a game I never see in the United States and after seeing it online, I fell in love and would very much like to see it appear in Hustle Kings as it offers great billiards skill. It is played on a Snooker sized table with all white, numbered balls and a red cue ball. The pockets are very tight making shots much more challenging. Please check out this wiki page on it and hopefully you'll consider as it look like great challenge! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_pyramid
Possible trophies for this one?
Cowboy billiards - is a game played with the 1, 3, and 5 ball which encourages this use of carom shots. The game is played to 101 points. However, once a player reaches their 90th point, they must make the next few shots with special limitations.
Reverse pool - Some know it as "Chinese 8 ball". It combines the playing style of 8 Ball Pool with the shooting style of other carom games. This makes for a distinctly different, yet familiar game. Balls are pocketed by striking the object ball first using the cue stick and causing it to carom off of the cue ball, then fall into the called pocket. A very fun game but might be more of a challenge to develop for hustle kings as you'd have to make it so that players can choose which object ball to shoot at the cue ball.
Keno pool - uses a board with holes in which you score by combining the ball number with numbered hole on the board. There is a video on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yV4gq_UjX4M
Although usually it's play on a pocket-less table.
Bumber pool - This would be fun to play as well.
Anyway, I hope someone at Voofoo reads this and gets thinking. These would be great fun and I feel would improve or add to a great game!
