Pub Pool is a unique "coffee break" pool game from Mastertronic. In contrast to other serious pool simulations, the idea behind Pub Pool is simple: shoot six pool balls into each corner of a hexagonal pool table, using as few moves as possible. You play the game from a top-down perspective, using a simple but effective interface that lets you adjust the spin of your cue, the direction, etc. You are allowed to miss five times (a miss is counted when your shot doesn't sink any balls) or it's game over. You can either compete against another human player in hot-seat mode, or against the computer. Crowds around the table comment on your shots, although they seem to only have good things to say ;) Overall, the game is simple, but fun and effective. A good choice to while away coffee breaks, Pub Poolis a refreshing change from typical pool/snooker titles. Thumbs up!
