You think you know pool? Think again. Adult Swim Games and developer Rekim’s strange riff on the world of pool is coming to take over your Nintendo Switch and PC with Pool Panic this July. The adventure game is rife with tons of “weird” things to do with pool balls, as you play as a cue ball who’s raring to explore a massive cartoon overworld with various different environments.
You’ll hit up everywhere from carnivals to deserts, cities and jungles, and tons of other totally inappropriate locations to be playing pool at in the first place. Make friends with some cool billiard ball customers, take part in plenty of puzzle-solving situations, and tackle boss fights with various different strategies across 100 different levels.
There’s more than pool at stake, though. You’ll also get to spend time with various minigames like soccer, mini-golf, winter sports, summer sports, and more. There are also apparently games featuring thingsl ike dive bars, birthday cakes, motorcycle gangs, a Ferris wheel, castles, ghosts, zombies, lollipop forests, whea, and more. Yes, lollipop forests and wheat. Strange.
You can play solo or with up friends via local multiplayer for two to four players, but one thing’s for sure: this is pool like you’ve never seen before. You can pick it up on July 19, smack dab in the middle of summer.
