What's New in Version 1.4
- Fixes a user music bug recently discovered with the latest version of iOS
Well, I don't know.
First, the good news: This app is a better Snooker simulator than all the others around here.
But it's still rubbish.
The controls are rather sluggish, the 3D graphics and the 2D UI looks and feels cheap, and for everyone who ever played a real Snooker table the physics could hardly behave less realistic.
If you're looking for a cheap arcade-style Snooker clone to kill some time and you don't care about graphics, realism, or any kind of sophistication, go right ahead, this app will satisfy your needs.
But if you're a Snooker enthusiast looking for the real deal, this is nothing but a disappointment and turned out to be a waste of my time and money.
Great game, very relaxing, just perfect for me! There is one problem that screams for fix: if iPad is in case in "cinema" position, it's upside-down! I understand the need for horizontal layout but this should be fixed with "vertical flip" button or iPad sensor.
the free snooker game i down loaded is far superior to this if i could give half a star i would. the aimming is bad there is no cue you just set the power and press the shot button how could you miss. not much challenging about this game. if i could get my money back i would.
