Mini Review: Pure Pool – As Close To The Real Thing As You’ll Get On Switch | Nintendo Life

A ball game right on cue.

Pure Pool does exactly what it says on the tin. It’s a pool game through and through, and a darn good one at that. Developer VooFoo Studios has wisely restrained from flooding Pure Pool with wacky flourishes and overblown physics, instead focusing on delivering an experience that’s as close to the real deal as you’re likely to get. It’s been on other platforms for a few years now, but if you’re a pool fan, Pure Pool’s release on Switch may still be worth keeping an eye on.

The game’s main draw is its Career mode; here, you’ll go against a number of AI opponents in a kind of tournament-style layout. You can take part in 8-ball, 9-ball, and Snooker events, each of which is split into Amateur, Pro, and Master difficulties. Aside from the main events, you’ll also have additional challenges to take part in, our favourite of which is Killer: you and an opponent will take turns at the table, each starting with 3 lives. If you miss, you lose a life, and if you sink more than one ball at once, you gain a life. It’s a simple premise that’s surprisingly engaging in practice. We could have done with a few more unique challenges, but the handful available are fun enough.
