Apps & Games content ratings on Softonic

Content ratings help you understand the type of content you might find in an app or game, so you can decide if they are suitable for you and your family.

What do the ratings actually tell me?

Content ratings describe the minimum age we feel the content is suitable for. It does not indicate that the app was specifically designed for that particular age, or if a certain level of skill is required to play the game or use the app.

Where can I find the content ratings?

You will find the content ratings on every app or game page.

Why are some apps or games unrated?

If an app or game does not have a rating, it means that it has not yet been rated, or it’s been rated and we’re working to update the page.

Rating Systems

Softonic uses the rating systems by PEGI and ESRB. The ratings you see may vary by country or region.

Free pool game with realistic physics

Elena Santos

Articles FooBillard
Pros
  • Four pool types available
  • Features several game modes
  • You can play against the PC or another person
Cons
  • Menu is not easily accesible

FooBillard is a free OpenGL-billard game for Linux with ports to Windows and Mac OS X, which features realistic physics, AI-player and many gametypes like pool carambol or snooker. Why foo? Well, actually I had this logo (F.B.-Florian Berger) and then foo sounds a bit like pool (Somehow I wasn't quite attracted by the name FoolBillard) The main physics is quite mature but not yet perfect. If you are a billard-pro and you're missing some physics, please tell me. Cause I've implemented it like I think it should work, which might differ from reality.

Take a look at what this game features:

  • wood paneled table with gold covers and gold diamonds
  • reflections on balls
  • shadow pixmaps
  • detail switching of balls according to distance
  • zoom in/out - hold right mousebutton
  • FOV +/- - hold right mousebutton + CTRL
  • rotate - hold left mousebutton
  • animated queue
  • 8ball, 9ball, snooker, carambol
  • simple AI-Player
  • strength adjustment
  • eccentic hit adjustment (button2-Shift)
  • red/green 3D stereo view !!!
  • sound
  • network play
  • free view mode

I like the graphics and the physics in the game. The controls are easy and intuitve. Once you unpack it from the .zip file you click the .exe and start playing. No need to worry about a complicated install. Nicely done. If you like billiards, this is a must have.

Pros
  • Play billiards with out all the smoke filled halls.
Cons
  • cannot put spins on the ball
