Pool Panic is a game that absolutely deserves the Adult Swim Games seal of approval. The craziness in level design and characters are something you’d expect from the likes of a Rick and Morty universe. With a fairly robust single player campaign and hilariously fun multiplayer, the frustrations you’ll encounter are often outweighed once you walk away from the game for a bit. If you need a laugh after work, or you want to play something with your friends and family, this will do the trick.

Pool Panic looks great, sounds great and for the most part plays pretty well. At $14.99 you certainly get a lot for your money and anyone looking for a challenging puzzle experience will enjoy it. However with great variety does come some problems and be prepared to have to deal with some levels that just don't feel finely tuned. If you can look beyond some wonky mechanics Pool Panic is a great game.

Pool Panic is a ridiculous and enjoyable game. Although it can be annoying at times, the overall amount of wacky fun you'll have within its trippy world far outweighs any frustration that you'll experience along the way.

Pool Panic has some truly unique moments that could have only been a result due to its truly unique gameplay mechanics and wacky premise. While the draw to this game may be in its own flavor, going from one level to the other without any plot progression often results in player fatigue. The gameplay can feel awkward at times with it missing that final round of polish and uncomfortable camera work, but the mechanics are well implemented and very responsive.

Pas besoin de sortir de Saint-Cyr pour se douter que Pool Panic ne plaira pas à tout le monde. Au-delà de sa direction artistique particulière, le jeu manque de précision et sa technique limitée pourra en gêner certains. Mais il suffit de mettre de côté ces quelques anicroches pour se retrouver en face d’un titre drôle, à l’ambiance délirante et qui multiplie les situations loufoques. Malgré sa répétitivité, on passe un bon moment et on y revient régulièrement. Ce n'est certainement pas le titre le plus ambitieux qui soit, néanmoins il possède des atouts insoupçonnés.

Loaded with problems, dullness, and annoyances, Pool Panic didn’t grip me anywhere in a way I expected it to. It has a good idea, and with some more interesting level ideas in place, the game would have been an easy recommendation. Instead it just feels wasted. It’s flat and wears out its welcome before you’re even close to done with the 100+ levels. The nuggets of greatness can still be found, but they’re just too few and far between to really keep up the excitement that the title suggests.
