Pool Pro Online 3 gives pool fans an opportunity to play friends online anywhere in the world in 8-ball, 9-ball and Snooker. In this 3D game, individuals can make in-game wagers against their opponent and use the winnings to purchase table felts, cue sticks and new pool halls.

Pool Pro Online 3 is the first of a series of games using UniteSDK, Namco’s proprietary technology that provides cross-platform play. Through the power of UniteSDK, players log-in using their device and receive instant access to multiple online features, including:

  • Friends list to make it easy to find and challenge friends
  • Global Leaderboards to share scores with people around the world
  • Achievements to track accomplishments and share them with friends on Facebook
  • Chat with opponents in real time

According to Jonathan Kromrey, general manager of apple games for Namco Networks, “This is only the beginning of where we are going as a company. Over the next several months, we will roll out a series of other features and games that are powered by UniteSDK, including tournaments for Pool Pro Online 3.”

“Allowing gamers with the option to play anywhere, anytime and on multiple platforms will be a true milestone for Namco Networks—wanting to play a friend that has an iPhone when someone only has a PC will no longer be a prohibiting factor,” stated Kirby Fong, executive producer of web development and online gaming community at Namco Networks. “UniteSDK allows Namco and in the near future, external developers, to create games that provide cross platform and cross game social community.”
