Archer Maclean's 3D Pool is a 100 per cent accurate version of the 1993 pool simulation, squeezed into the Game Boy Advance using the tightest fastest non-hardware accelerated 3D routines. The game offers variations of American and UK pool, a rule editor to cover loads more rule sets, and a trick shot table editor - all presented in three glorious dimensions. Both single and multi-player frames and tournaments are available, with the computer-controlled opponents providing an increasingly tough challenge.
Control is simple, via an intuitive menu system that'll have players potting balls left, right and hopefully centre within minutes. The flexibility of the 3D engine means the camera can be positioned virtually anywhere the player likes in order to ensure the best potting view, with many flight-sim like tracking cameras when all the balls are flying about. Swerve shots and spin can be applied with ease; the only thing the player need care about is working out where the white ball should end up in order to continue the break.
