Krakow, Poland (PRWEB) December 1, 2006
One of the world's most popular online billiards games has been extensively updated. Today, GameDesire -- the popular online casual games site -- has launched the third generation billiards platform developed by Ganymede Technologies. The new billiards platform has the ambitious goal of eventually making the old billiards games obsolete, and seriously challenging for the title of the world's best online multiplayer billiards.
GameDesire already has one of the most popular series of multiplayer billiards games. The current billiards games have been attracting more players than ever, with over 100,000 unique users playing daily. To date over 1.5 million people have tried the 8-ball game, and close to 1 million people have played snooker. Thousands of players are active in leagues, tournaments, ladders. For this reason, many players might initially be hesitant to make the switch to the new platform.
New vs. Old Billiards Games
While the new platform is visually similar to the previous version, extensive improvements have been made in the game mechanics, functionality of the program and interaction between user and server. The goal is to make the game customizable to the individual needs of the player, while guaranteeing more security.
One of the main improvements is the inclusion of various community features. For example, the chat module and avatars have been improved, in-game friend lists have been included, and the new games also come skype-enabled. The inclusion of Skype allows players to chat with each other over Voice-over-Internet technology while playing their favorite billiards games. These community features aim to make playing multiplayer games a friendlier, more entertaining experience.
The new billiards platform includes the popular 8-ball, 9-ball, straight pool and snooker games. In addition, the regional variations of UK 8-ball and Brazilian Sinuca are included, as well as a single-player practice mode.
The Ganymede Technologies Billiards platform, available to try at http://www.gamedesire.com, takes aim to be the casual gamers' number one online billiards game.
