Title Archer Maclean's Pool Publisher Virgin (1992) Game Type Sport Players 1-2 (up to 8 in tournaments) HD Installable HD-patch: from Bert Jahn's WHDLoad page Compatibility All Amigas Submission Dennis Smith Profiled Reviewer Review Archer Maclean had a success in 1991 with 'Jimmy White's Whirlwind Snooker', so to widen his audience he put together a pool game using the same 3D-engine he devised for 'Snooker'. As well as adapting his engine to the rules of 3 pool variants (UK 8-ball, US 8-ball and US 9-ball) and altering the dimensions of balls and table, he also included many new computer opponents (16 more than Snooker's 4) and added the option to play matches or a tournament as well as single frames. The game is just as good as 'Snooker' was in terms of realism, with the exception that in the US pool-variants, in which the balls are numbered, the numbers stay fixed in the centres of the balls, giving them the impression of sliding across the table instead of rolling. However, given the processing power of the average Amiga at the time, this was the only option available and you swiftly get used to it. This is by far the most accurate simulation available on the Amiga so if you do enjoy pool, you'll find this an excellent game.
