Silly billiards Pool Panic released

Rekim’s endearingly daft action-billiards adventure Pool Panic has rolled out into stores, and immediately into the corner pocket. Billed as “the world’s least realistic pool simulator”, this bizarre little game has been on my radar for a while. To say it stretches the rules of pool a bit would be a gross understatement, but from […]
