    Had a quick test of this game on the emulator. Seemed to be decent enough pool game. Dont think there are many other pool games for DS yet?

    There is Midnight Pool which is part of the Gameloft "Midnight Play Pack". So far its the best version of pool on the DS, though that isn't saying much.

    Some people like the 42 in 1 version of pool, but I don't.

    The 42 in 1 version wasn't realistic at all. It'd be nice to have a good pool game on the DS, although I think it'd be kind of a rip off for just packaging it alone.

    If I remember correctly - and if it's this (whos topic for some reason I cannot view) - it wasn't very great. I still love me some Virtual Pool Hall PC..

    No, but possibly with a cue. Unless a lot of people are lined up to get the game.

    I think it's called "cue"... [​IMG] (and the "cue" usually comes with a... "bin"!!! [​IMG] )

    //I haven't tried this yet, but the 42-in-1 (which was a good game, in general) pool was just awful... Actually, it isn't exactly pool... there were discs instead of balls!!! [​IMG]
