Higher Strokes = Faster Movement
Lower Strokes = Slower Movement

SOUND: There is sound and music in this application, by default it is off to allow you to play your own music.
You can turn the sound on by tapping the icon in the bottom right hand corner of the menu screen.

I've been watching this one from release. I've always been a huge fan of Billiards, but never got around to trying the the British variation. With this being the games first sale, due to the World Snooker Championship starting, now is the time I'll be jumping to grab this one. ^ ^

Web Designer & Developer since 1999.

Games I highly recommend: CozyQuest, Gemmed, Jabeh, Blue Defense, Blue Attack, geoDefense, Hospital Havoc

So excited about this. Been wanting to try it for ages, but being the skinflint I am had put it off (seeing as I already have Virtual Pool and Killer Pool). But this is snooker! I grew up watching it on TV! So I just bought this and played for just a little while and I am already VERY impressed with its polish and playability.

Excellent, bought this after watching the video.

Reminds me a lot of the original Codemasters Snooker game on Playstation.
