OK, so it’s no Jimmy White’s Whirlwind Snooker, and it does only have an overhead view with no zooming and a shot guide which isn’t even nearly granular enough for a pool game, but I was somewhat hooked.
Even with the way you play a frame (on your own!), then have to do a trick shot, and if you fail the trick shot, you have to play another frame. You only progress to the next round if you – lets face it – fluke your way through the tricks. Like I did.
Everything is too small, inaccurate and the ball movement is as jerky as that terrible pinball game on the NES and yet, I was still hooked.
And I completed it. Somehow.
