Foobillard

Foobillard is a billiards game with a three dimensional display. It supports 8-ball, 9-ball, carambol and snooker, as well as a computer opponent and network play. It is written using OpenGL, and has very high quality graphics and textures.

The game is packaged using debhelper and quilt.

Upstream is not very responsive, and seems to have abandoned the package. Since it seems to be quite widely used I think it is worth maintaining in spite of that.

?FrankGevaerts is quite familiar with the AI and rules parts of the source (having implemented/updated them for snooker), but not with the OpenGL and physics parts.

System requirements

  • 5 MB free hard disk space
