Premium Pool Arena offers several ways to play the game. In single player there are options to play against AI or just to fine tune skills in speed mode by trying to pot the balls as quickly as possible. Multiplayer can be played both online and offline. Local multiplayer is a great way to play with friends from one screen. Online matches on the other hand, can be played against your Steam friends or against anyone in the global pool arena. In addition to 1 on 1 matches there is an extensive tournament mode, which allows playing a series of single matches against other players online. Also rewards from tournaments are higher than from the regular matches.
