Description from the packaging.

I'm Sharkey. I've been playing pool for forty years, and I've never seen a billiards game on any computer that can live up to the real thing.

Until now.

I like this game so much, I'm putting my name on it. Sharkey's 3-D Pool is the only game that lets you try the shots you want to try- because it lets you look at things from any angle you want. No other game gives you that many choices, that many angles on the action.

And when it comes to shooting pool, angles are everything.

Other Billiards Games: Stationary, 2-dimensional view.
Sharkey's 3-D Pool: 2-D and 3-D views. Rotate the table 360 degrees for the best angle on any shot. Move in closer to the table for those delicate shots; or farther away to see all the action at once.

Other Billiards Games: No computer opponents.
Sharkey's 3-D Pool: Seven opponents of varying ability. Each shoots an intelligent game, analyzing each shot to take advantage of the best opportunities. You can also play head-to-head against a friend.

Other Billiards Games: Only one version of billiards to play.
Sharkey's 3-D Pool: Play 8-ball, 9-ball, Rotation or 14.1 Continuous. Shoot in a variety of pool halls.

Other Billiards Games: Limited english on the cue ball.
Sharkey's 3-D Pool: Place the cue anywhere you want on the cue ball for the exact english you want.

Other Billiards Games: No tournament play.
Sharkey's 3-D Pool: 8-ball and 9-ball tournaments with automatic seeding and prize money for first and second place.

Other Billiards Games: No betting.
Sharkey's 3-D Pool: Optional betting on every game you play. The better the opponent, the higher the stakes.

Other Billiards Games: No trick shots.
Sharkey's 3-D Pool: Over 20 trick shots available for you to analyze and try to make yourself.
