I vice it a 5 ☀☀☀☀☀


As only it a good game now the developers need to make it iPhone 5 friendly and more tournaments included. Welsh, English, Irish and Scottish players. Now if you need a welsh player face then contact me as I am a welsh snooker player and been playing this game from the start. I love playing it but does get boring playing same players all the time. And how about an online game with other players? I do hope the people behind this game listen to their customers as it is a very good game. If you need to contact me. For my face lol then I can send you a message to the developers.

Good game


I love snooker and really like this game but it needs updating please! Need more realism... Recognise profession snooker players like ronnie I would like to play. Who is Ray Harris really?? Better career mode would be great and longer tournaments, could be more frames too :/ some good old safety play would be cool and make the game more tactical. Honestly some of the shots the CPU does are like trick shots that no snooker player would ever take on, some are not Evan possible!! But it is a good game that I enjoy, just get bored to easily. Also one more thing, some commentary would be amazing :) or the option to have it on or off, would make it very realistic. Thankyou. UPDATE!!!!!!!! And you will make more money!!!!!

Used to be ok.

Yes, when I bought this - note, bought - it was a well designed game with realistic ball action - run on, bounce, cannon and so on - but then Apple decided to change their platform to 32 bit and it didn’t work any more. Months of asking the developers what they were going to do with this app that I had BOUGHT eventually had them rewrite it so it would work on 32 bit. Well, the rewrite was lamentably poor. Nothing like the original. Ball speed and reaction to impact was awful. Several updates later it is approaching the quality of the original game. BUT they have included adverts! And I BOUGHT it originally. Can I have my money back?
