Not only have the Hit Squad acquired the superb Jimmy White's Whirlwind Snooker from Virgin, they've also snapped up the rights to Archer Maclean's follow up. Pool It may not be as comprehensive a game as Team 17's Arcade Pool, but it still contains all the rules for US and UK 8-ball and US 9 Ball matches
Using the same graphic engine as Jimmy White's, with some speed optimisation (believe me, this thing really shifts on an A1200!) with a few minor modifications, the game has the same natural feel and realistic gameplay of the former, with a few minor twists The big difference comes in the US games, where the balls are spotted, striped and numbered. Sadly, the balls don't actually roll like they do in Arcade Pool gliding along the table instead, with the numbers always facing you. But then the maths involved in creating rolling balls are beyond the A1200's capabilities What do you want, realism or speed?
It's a great game, and although it's not very different from Jimmy White's, it's well worth owning both just for the variety of game. And at such a great price, too!
