Manufacturer's product description
The most realistic series of snooker and pool simulations is back with Jimmy 'Whirlwind' White lending his cheeky, cockney charisma once more in Jimmy White's Cueball World. For the first time ever the game will be played across a wide variety of stunningly animated ambient locations around the globe. Hustle on tables set on peaceful desert Islands in the Maldives right up to the mystical Stonehenge!Needless to say the game's state-of-the-art ball kinetics are utterly realistic and will raise the stakes for world class snooker and pool games, just like the previous titles from Archer Maclean and his award-winning team at Awesome Developments.Jimmy White's Cueball World also features highly expressive animated 'hands' that inhabit each of the game's 'worlds'. These hands represent your opponents - with the graphical quality of the hands alone so high that each hand has more polygons than the entire previous Cueball game!Besides the amazing locations and great snooker/pool games, Jimmy White's Cueball World showcases a plethora of rule types, new gameplay features and even a series of unusual and addictive sub-games. For instance try your hand at a series of crazy-golf like Pool-Stunt-Tables where you pot against the clock, a tilting and swivelling Ball-in-a-Maze game, an Endurance Thumb Wrestling game, and even good old British Darts.
