Check out fooBillard Demo for Android.
This is actually a complete rewrite
by the original author of fooBillard.
A new PC-version is also planned.
FooBillard (official home page: http://foobillard.sunsite.dk/) is a free (libre; licensed under GPL2) OpenGL
billiard game for Linux by
Florian Berger. This is the page for ports
of FooBillard hosted on SourceForge. At
the moment, a Win32 port is hosted here. The official page has an
OS X port and older Win32 ports. There is also a Polish version, see below for

versions 2.9 and 3.0.
Please see the official page
for more screen
shots. Do play
the GNU/Linux version in
order to experience the original FooBillard. The rendered display with
high-quality settings is very nice
if you have a fast Nvidia card.
Foobillard summary information can also be found on Freshmeat and FSF's Software Directory.
FooBillard is best played on Linux
a GeForce2 class or better graphics card and OpenGL libraries
with 3D acceleration. Ported by Kein-Hong
Man, using Msys+Mingw and SciTE. FooBillard uses SDL, FreeType 2, libpng, zlib, and libgw32c from the GnuWin32 project. This
port would not have been possible without GNU

If your graphics card and its Win32 OpenGL driver does not support
advanced visual effects, then FooBillard should ignore the high-quality
display settings and still work correctly. Older Intel graphics may
fail to render the fancy modes. Please see README.win32 in the
distribution for the details. The port is quite (but not
perfectly) stable. Network play has not been tested, you're welcome to
troubleshoot the networking code. As maintainer of the Win32 port, I
don't have any big plans; I'm barely familiar with OpenGL, and I
usually play FooBillard very casually, mainly for relaxation.
