Pool Panic Has Arrived For Switch

Pool Panic has arrived on the Switch! This unique game has you controlling a cue ball across a wide variety of environments. There are over 100 levels to get through! Check out the launch trailer and press release below. We’ve just received a review code, so we should have that ready for you next week.



Adult Swim Games and independent developer Rekim have released Pool Panic, the World’s Least Realistic Pool Simulator. This ridiculous action-adventure game is available today for $14.99 on Nintendo Switch™ through the Nintendo eShop in the Americas, as well as worldwide on Windows PC via Steam. It will be available on Switch in all other territories on July 23.

Pool Panic offers tons of over-the-top games and activities to play with pool balls across a sprawling cartoon overworld full of cities, carnivals, jungles, deserts and more. Line up the perfect shot through over 100 levels of pool-based shenanigans featuring soccer, mini-golf, winter sports, summer sports, dive bars, night clubs, birthday cakes, ghosts, zombies, pirate ships, lollipop forests, and so many other things we can’t even put to words (we tried).

As a mischievous cue ball in a giant game of pool, you’ll knock around a peculiar cast of billiard balls and solve puzzling challenges with an ever-changing variety of fun rules and mechanics. With so much to see and do, Pool Panic makes for an outrageous party game – play on your own or with friends in local multiplayer for two to four players!

Let’s Play Pool Panic Live!, hosted with special guests by Adult Swim Games, will be featured as part of Adult Swim Camp at Comic-Con International this weekend. Free for fans 18 and over, Adult Swim Camp will offer exciting night programming today until Saturday next door to the San Diego Convention Center at 5th Avenue Landing and Convention Way. Let’s Play Pool Panic Live! will be streamed at and on Thursday, July 19, at 11 p.m. PT and Friday, July 20, at 10 p.m. PT.
