Full press release should be out on Monday I guess; the App's been with Apple all week so should appear at any time.

Best,

-AT

Cheers!

great thanks!!

as long as it's not a top down game [Edit - oops missed the link - looks promising - apart from the guide lines - hope you can play without those - but even if not I'll prob get as all the pool games have yet to have rules that equal what I'm used to playing]

That game is very graphically similar to World Championship Pool 09.

Finally! Another pool game!

I'm just kidding, looks great. Although I don't see anything wrong with the one I already have - Pool.

Well, Pool is a totally different game than Snooker! The only Snooker game in the store so far was Adrenaline Pool Online, but its Snooker mode was nearly unplayable (wrong size of table and balls).

So all you UK Snooker heads (Snooker is the most viewed Sports on UK TV after football!): How is this new game?

Yeah, Snooker is a completely different game to Pool. Much more skill in it.

That clip looks awsome.

Looks promising! Can you turn off the guide lines to make it more challenging? Do opposition players (or indeed the player themselves) have the option to resign a frame if too far behind? Some other snooker games I've played make you play on and on til the end of a frame even if you're 100 points ahead/behind!
