A computer simulation of the real life game that theoretically allows the player to enjoy snooker without the need of a cumbersome table. It's a fairly new idea on the Spectrum.

John: The speed is very irregular. Still, it's not easy to adequately reproduce the movement of a ball on screen. More effort could have gone into the graphics; the balls are not very well defined. 6/10

Tony: Problems occur with colour. For example, it's not possible to have a green ball on a green table. Some of the balls are therefore represented by nonstandard colours. 6/10

Mark: Comprehensive instructions appear on the cassette insert as you'd never remember them all straight away. The program has one slight technical problem - if the ZX Interface 1 is connected, it doesn't work. 7/10
