How to play Amju Super Cool Pool
It's easy to play Amju Super Cool Pool! Use the left mouse button to aim, then use the right mouse button to shoot!
How to aim the cue
To move the cue, move the mouse while holding down the (left) mouse button.
How to take a shot
Hold down the right mouse button while you move the mouse. Mac users, hold down Ctrl and drag the mouse. You will see a power guage appear. Pull the mouse back for more power, or push forwards for less power. When you are ready, release the mouse button to take the shot. To cancel the shot, push up until the power guage is empty, and release the mouse button.
How to move the cue contact position
# The contact position is where the cue hits the cue ball. To move it around, hold down the middle mouse button and move the mouse. Mac users should hold down Option and drag the mouse. The current contact position is shown at the bottom left. Hitting the side of the cueball gives you sidespin, also called "english". This causes the path of the cue ball to curve.
# Hitting the top of the cue ball gives you topspin, and hitting below the centre gives you backspin. This causes the cue ball to travel forwards or back after it has hit another ball.
# Hitting the cue ball at the very bottom will make it jump! Hit the ball with lots of power to get a good jump.
Moving the Camera
Use the arrow keys to move the camera around. Use the Z and X keys to zoom in and out.
Requires Mac OS X version 10.4 ("Tiger") or later

About Amju Games
Being a kid in the 1980s I was lucky enough to enjoy the golden age of video gaming - arcades full of beeping, flashing games machines, ahh.. bliss! For a long time my favourite game was Asteroids (although I was rubbish). Here's an Asteroids link.
This was also when home computers became widely available, and so you could not only play video games but write them too! It was very exciting for me. My first computer was a Sinclair ZX81, and the next one a Sinclair Spectrum, and of course all I wanted to do was play games and write games on them!
A few years ago I started playing around with writing games again, and started on a 3D game. Eventually this turned into Amju, which I finished in February 2003. A lot of people seemed to like it, so I started work on a new game, which was Amju Super Golf. In 2005 I started working on Amju Super Cool Pool. In 2008 I released Amju Pet Zoo.. if there's one thing I've learned, it's that writing a game takes a looong time! :-)
