Hmmm another pool game, hopefully it's better than the previous ones.
any good ?
I am confused you guys have this as number 1692 but I have also seen
1692 - Bomberman Story DS (EUR)
This is 1692, Bomberman Story (E) is 1693, I checked DS Scene and a few other sites.
Ball-physics seem pretty good. You can pan up and down a bit (X and Y), set the "english" on the ball by holding the B button and adjusting with the d-pad, fine tune your aim with the shoulder buttons and you shoot with the A button. No touchscreen use required. Plays standard 8 and 9-ball as well as a UK version that uses different color balls. There's single player, 2-player and league modes. I only tried single player mode.....within that is quickplay, league, tournament and a extra game called "killer" where you have 8 lives and must make a shot or lose a life.
First problem I've seen is that it's hard to line up a shot. It doesn't give you a wide enough view of the table and the DS isn't exactly the highest resolution for making fine adjustments on. No tracers to give you any idea which way your shot is going to go, an overhead view is on the bottom screen while a 3D view is on the top screen, but neither view is truly good enough to properly judge a shot. Still, the first game I played (8-ball) I only lost by 1 ball, so maybe it's not so bad once you get used to the game a bit.
Certainly the best pool game I've played on the DS thus far, even with its flaws.
It trims to 4.68 megs using NDSTokyoTrim, so it's not like you'd be wasting a lot of space to check it out.
Maybe a dumb question, but is it 3D?
Sweet.. Another pool game. Hopefully it's better than Pool on Clubhouse games.
Any pool game is better than Clubhouse games pool....
You got that right.
I can't really find any other Pool games for the DS though.
I prefer real Pool, but I like to play VG pool every once in a while.
Hehe... "Power play" pool... is there also "Box play" pool?
could NOT be any worse than clubhouse pool if they made the balls too big, and set it in a mystical world where inertia barely exists.
It's a good little pool game I didn't like the other pool game on the DS don't remember what it was called.
